Tim Tebow Trade: Hangup In QB's Contract Could Nullify Deal

A hangup regarding the language in Tim Tebow's contract could potentially nullify Wednesday's trade between the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Tebow was sent to New York in a deal that was agreed upon earlier in the day, but this may apparently prevent its completion.

Schefter says that Tebow has "$5 million worth of recapture language" in his contract, meaning that the Jets would be required to pay that sum to the Broncos in order to complete the trade. He says that the Jets aren't yet sure if they're willing to pay that amount in order to bring Tebow to New York, which could eventually squash the deal.

He also notes that the two sides are sorting out the situation now, but the St. Louis Rams could potentially get into the mix if the trade with the Jets falls apart.

Tim Tebow Trade: New York Jets Pick Up Former Denver Broncos Starter

Less than 24 hours after Peyton Manning became the new starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos, former starter Tim Tebow has been traded to the New York Jets for a fourth-round draft pick, reports Fox Sports' Jay Glazer:

UPDATE: The trade has officially been announced:

The Jets were at first a long shot to get Tebow, but by Tuesday night things changed for them. He is a guy who could turn around the negative locker room perception that engulfed the Jets at the end of the season. Also, Rex Ryan brought in Tony Sparano as his offensive coordinator, he who put the wildcat formation into play while the head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Tebow will certainly be worked into the game plan in that capacity.

This also sends a message to Mark Sanchez that he has even more pressure on him to succeed. If he can't do it, Ryan can always turn to Tebow as the quarterback.

The Broncos received slightly more than what most people projected, which was usually a fifth- or sixth-round draft pick.

Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: John Elway Admits Trade Is Possible But Wants To Get QB In 'Best Possible Situation'

For anyone who thinks that John Elway doesn't care about Tim Tebow's career, Tuesday's press conference should have quelled any doubts about that. Elway came off as sincere and genuinely caring about Tebow's career in the NFL; however, he did admit that trading Tebow is a possibility. Here are some quotes from Elway:

Elway: He & Fox called Tim Tebow last night. "The toughest thing about this whole thing is Tim Tebow bc of what I think about Tim Tebow." via @denver_broncos

Elway said that Tebow said, "You're talking about Peyton Manning and I understand what you're doing." via @MaxBroncos

Elway: "I would love to be able to" give Tebow a chance to start QB elsewhere. "It's our goal to get him in the best situation possible." via @MaxBroncos

Clearly, Tebow understands that Elway is making a decision for the Broncos and not one to get rid of him. It's a football move, and one that almost every team in the league would do if they were in the same position. If that is a by-product of Manning's addition, so be it. That's what we have come to expect from Tebow, always the consummate professional.

Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: QB Hopes For Move To Florida, According To Report

Tim Tebow has apparently accepted his fate and is ready for a trade out of the Denver Broncos' organization. He has apparently told Brad and Monica Culpepper (the former a one-time Tampa Bay Buccaneers player) that he hopes to be traded to a team in Florida, according to WTAM (via Pro Football Talk):

"Brad and I just had dinner with Tim last week and I don’t think this comes as a shock or surprise to him that Manning was actually going to go there," she [Monica] said. "And in all honesty, Tim said, ‘I miss home. I miss the South. And hopefully I’ll land somewhere in Florida.’ I sure hope Jacksonville takes him because he’s such a great kid, such a good player and would be so thrilled to come back to the South."

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been mentioned ad nauseam because owner Shad Khan is a big fan of Tebow's, but his football people, including general manager Gene Smith, are not. Also, Chad Henne was recently signed to be Blaine Gabbert's backup.

The Miami Dolphins could use a quarterback after missing out on Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn. Back in October, Miami did go crazy for Tebow when the Broncos came to town for a game (that launched Tebow Time).

Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers Are Teams To Monitor, According To Report

The Denver Broncos are expected to move quickly on a Tim Tebow trade, but there are numerous suitors who will inquire about the former starter's drawing price. While a team such as the Jacksonville Jaguars is already heavily speculated as a suitor, how about the Green Bay Packers or the San Francisco 49ers, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports:


More Manning: Peyton In Denver Is Perfect | Broncos Looking To Trade Tebow

The Packers are set at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers airing the ball out, making it hard to imagine Tebow fitting into that scheme as some sort of slash player. The 49ers, on the other hand, do make for an interesting possibility. They are likely to lose Alex Smith, but Colin Kaepernick might be ready to step in. Still, Tebow could work well with Jim Harbaugh even if Smith is brought back or Kaepernick ascends to the role. And, well, there's always the possibility that Tebow could beat out Kaepernick in a training camp battle.

Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: Bills Speculated As Top Team For QB

While Peyton Manning patiently waits for his contract, the pastime of speculating on Tim Tebow's future now turns to the murky waters of trading him. Where will he go? Will he be a quarterback or a slash type of player? Over at NFL.com, Gregg Rosenthal lists his top five teams who might want to trade for Tebow, and the team at the top is the Buffalo Bills:

The Bills do make football sense. Coach Chan Gailey is perhaps the pro game's best at getting creative with mobile quarterbacks. He's the rare coach who would know what to do with Tebow. He could upgrade the backup position behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. Gailey could create packages for Tebow on the goal line and in short yardage, like the coach once did for Kordell Stewart.

But on the downside, Rosenthal is unsure whether Tebow would want to be a slash player, which doesn't mean much since Tebow doesn't have a say in where he will go.

Rosenthal adds the Jacksonville Jaguars as the No. 2 team because of owner Shad Khan's interest, but with Chad Henne backing up Blaine Gabbert, there doesn't appear to be room for Tebow. The Cleveland Browns, the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots round out the top five.
