Tim Tebow Trade: Broncos Reportedly Shopped Tebow During NFL Combine

As early as the 2012 NFL Combine, the Denver Broncos seemed to have committed to finding a new quarterback. According to The Florida Times-Union, the Broncos had begun "quietly shopping" QB Tim Tebow during the February NFL Combine -- weeks before agreeing to terms with free agent QB Peyton Manning.

Tebow started 11 games for the 2011 Broncos team, helping lead them to a short playoffs run. Then, on March 21, the team traded Tebow to the New York Jets, where he presumably becomes their new Wildcat quarterback.

Entering the NFL via the 2010 NFL Draft, Tebow has started 14 NFL games and played in 23 over the course of his two-year career. Despite his 75.1 career quarterback rating, Tebow has engineered 7 game-winning drives including 6 fourth-quarter comebacks.
