    According to multiple sources, the Broncos will look to trade Tim Tebow after agreeing to terms with Peyton Manning.

    Send him to Florida.

    Can anyone explain to me how trading Tebow is a good idea? He seems like the perfect backup to me (if he's behind someone like Manning). Good attitude. Good teamate. Great to use in trick plays. Cheap (relatively), and no trade value.

    So I guess Denver can re-install an NFL offense now?

    This is literally Elways 1 shot to get rid of Tebow. If he leaves him on the roster the fans might go ape **** and attack him.

    Tebowmania. I can't see the kid's fanbase accepting him as a back up.

    At least Tim can cry himself to sleep in Katy Perry

    If I'm the Jags why would I trade for him when I know they are going to cut him anyway?

    The Jags can't fill their stadium. With hometown hero Tebow in a Jag uniform, the Jag fans will return.

    I always hear this argument, but when you trade for a guy you ensure that you get him...If they hit the open market that can conceivably go anywhere...

    Because they won't cut him. They have no reason to do so at this point, and the idea is to get something out of Tebow to help the team win now with Peyton. They have about 3 years to cash in on Peyton's talent, so even a 3rd round pick for Tebow helps the team more than keeping him on the roster.

    Khan stated that if he had owned the Jags previously he would've drafted Tebow. Of course we know he said that for the benefit of the Jags fanbase. It'll be interesting to see Kahn's position now.

    I see this two ways.

    On one hand, I think he'd be a good backup QB to have for all the reasons you just mentioned. Great attitude, great teamate, give him more time to develop, and can come in to the game if needed and still be competitive. Personally, I see him kind of like VY. They both have the God-given talent to come in as a backup and use their natural abilities to compete or win some games.

    On the other hand, if Elway & Co. don't think he is the solution for a franchise QB in +/- 3 years when Manning is done, they need to get rid of Tebow and find the QB that they want to be developing during that timeframe. Maybe draft a rookie to groom... but they need to be developing their next franchise QB and now is the PERFECT opportunity. Cut your losses with Tebow if you don't think he's the guy.

    The Tebow Nation in Denver will not be happy with Tebow on the bench. Elway either has to cut him or trade him. If I'm the Jags, I'm going to wait it out.
