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.

Peyton Manning Press Conference: Manning Introduced As Newest Broncos Quarterback

Peyton Manning has been announced as the newest member of the Denver Broncos at a Tuesday press conference. Owner Pat Bowlen took to the podium first and spoke first. He said Peyton Manning gave the Broncos a chance to win another championship. John Elway then came to the podium and said that Manning has already made the team better, even though he has yet to meet all of his teammates.

Manning finally came to the podium and mentioned that he felt a sense of urgency to win a Super Bowl now since he doesn't "have 15 years of football ahead" of him. Manning also admitted that he does have plenty of work ahead of him in his rehab to get back to where he wants to be. He plans to start working on that immediately.

Peyton Manning Contract: Details Emerge On Deal With Broncos

Details of Peyton Manning's contract with the Denver Broncos are leaking, ending much of the speculation over how much money would be put at the front of the contract. According to Andrew Brandt, Manning will receive $58 million over the first three years of the deal:

Also as expected, the contract includes safeguards for the Broncos should Manning's neck prevent him from playing. However, it appears that the waiver doesn't kick in until the second year of the deal.

The real question is whether Manning will even want to play five more seasons in the league. It might be a solid guess to say that Manning plays just three more seasons. Does he really want to linger on like Brett Favre and play until he is 40?

Peyton Manning Update: Broncos Schedule Tuesday Press Conference

The Denver Broncos have scheduled a press conference on Tuesday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. MT. This conference, as we all know by now, will be to announce that Peyton Manning is a member of the Denver Broncos -- signed, sealed, delivered.

Manning's signing with Denver will have a ripple effect throughout the NFL. The team has already seen its 2013 Super Bowl odds shoot up to being a top-four team. But now the team becomes more attractive to free agents who have waited to sign. This group of players includes center Jeff Saturday and tight end Dallas Clark, both former teammates of Manning's in Indianapolis.

One year ago, John Elway returned to the Broncos and now a year later Elway's putting his, hopefully, crowning mark on the team.

Peyton Manning Will Sign With Denver Broncos, According To Report

Peyton Manning will sign with the Denver Broncos after a whirlwind week of rampant speculation fueled by anyone and everyone. After it was leaked two weeks ago that Manning would be released (it came a day later on Wednesday), the speculation on where he would land heated up. In the end, it wound up being the first team he visited: the Broncos.

The terms of his deal are not yet known, but both sides are believed to be working off the parameters of Manning's five-year, $90 million deal he signed last July, the one that he signed and then never played a down of football after for the Indianapolis Colts.

So, with Manning in the fold, we now wait for Tim Tebow's future to unfold -- likely elsewhere.

Peyton Manning Update: Contract Offers Revised, Based On $90 Million Deal From 2011

The Denver Broncos, the Tennessee Titans or the San Francisco 49ers are going to wind up spending more money than originally thought on Peyton Manning if the Denver Post's Mike Klis is correct in what he now has as a revised contract figure:

Klis originally reported that the Broncos and other teams were working on a five-year, $60 million contract for Manning, but now indications are that teams will need to work on the mega-contract Manning signed with the Colts last year -- the one he signed last summer and then never took a snap after, the one that led to his release earlier in the month.

Are we looking at fool's gold here?

Peyton Manning Update: Broncos Visiting QB In N.C., Will See Him Throw

Is the Peyton Manning Free Agent Courtship about to end with the quarterback signing a contract with the Denver Broncos? Just as we learned one week ago about a plane registered to Broncos owner Pat Bowlen going to Miami to pick up Manning, it appears that same plan is now heading to Durham, N.C., where Manning has been working out recently:

It appears that this is a visit to see Manning, who is at Duke University, to throw the ball:

Is this just a formality for the Broncos before they get Manning signature on a contract? It could be a very good day in Colorado later on Friday.

Peyton Manning Rumors: Broncos, Cardinals Are Leaders For QB's Services, According To Report

The Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals are the leaders in pursuit of signing free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, according to Adam Schefter's sources. But, of course, we don't know that for sure. Schefter's sources believe Manning's gut is leaning toward Denver right now, as indicated by his visit there first before heading down south to meet with the Arizona Cardinals.

Apparently the Seattle Seahawks are also attempting to have a meeting with Manning, but so far the team has been rebuffed, which tells us what Manning thinks of the situation in the Pacific Northwest. But will Manning open that search? He might not if he really does want to make a decision on Tuesday.

And should that decision be to sign with the Broncos, we know that will increase the amount of speculation of a Tim Tebow trade, something that has began in earnest.

But, as we've learned with a number of free agents across all sports over the last year, the mystery team has often won out with a player.

Peyton Manning Update: Broncos, QB Will Have Visit On Friday, According To Report

What new level of craziness has entered into the Peyton Manning sweepstakes? Apparently a plane that is linked to Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen made a stop in Miami on Friday, according to ESPN's Mike Sando:

An aircraft enthusiasts have linked to Denver's Pat Bowlen traveled Thursday from Denver to Stillwater, Okla., site of the Oklahoma State pro day. The Broncos' John Elway and other NFL talent evaluators were expected to attend that workout.

Here's where things get interesting. That same plane left Stillwater for Miami at 7:01 a.m. ET on Friday. The plane spent 72 minutes on the ground before heading back to Stillwater, where it was scheduled to land at 2:11 p.m. ET.

Combine this with Mike Klis' report over at the Denver Post that Manning is meeting with the team on Friday, we can connect the dots and assume that the plane picked up Manning in MIami, is picking up Elway from Stillwatter and then will return to Denver for some serious discussions about the two sides coming to an agreement.

Peyton Manning Rumors 2012: Denver Broncos Will Inquire About Free Agent QB, According To Report

The Denver Broncos will enter the wild derby that will become the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. This comes just one day after Klis believed the Broncos would not be a bidder for Manning's services.

But before we start labeling the Broncos as a real player for the quarterback, Klis writes that the team is merely calling Manning's agent, Tom Condon, to gauge his client's interest in Denver. Klis then breaks down the reasons why the team might not do it, ones we've mentioned here already: Manning's neck issues, his age, Tim Tebow.

Bringing in Manning isn't a bad idea, but the team sure does need to have a plan in case the worst-case scenario happens: Manning's neck isn't healed and he can't play. How many seasons are the Broncos going to alienate Tim Tebow as the supposed starter for the team?
