Jets Trade For Tebow
 
Unusually quiet in recent weeks, the New York Jets shattered the calm Wednesday by completing a trade for polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow, the team confirmed.

The Jets will send a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos, a source said.

Tebow, a former first-round pick, went on the trading block Monday when the Broncos secured free agent Peyton Manning, who signed a five-year, $96 million contract.

Several teams expressed interest, including Tebow's hometown Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Jets -- perceived as a sleeper at the outset -- pulled off the splashiest trade of the offseason.

Tebow will join a cast of backups behind incumbent Mark Sanchez, but his presence could ignite a quarterback controversy. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie tweeted before the trade that "we don't need Tebow," expressing his confidence in Sanchez and the current roster.

The timing of the trade is curious.

To the biggest joke in the NFL...a franchise in chaos and disorganization. Thats the last thing he needed, i kinda feel bad for him.....the only saving grace is that Sanchez SUCKS and he might be able to pull off stealing a starting job at some point there.

ONCE again....the lowly, fumbling and bumbling Browns, where he should have went and would have been a bigger star, put fannies in the seats, and brought all eyes to a struggling, boring franchise (what this organization NEEDS above all else))......fell asleep at the wheel. They should have been on the phone immediately with Elway as soon as Manning's press conference ended.
Holgrem is doing a terrible job up there. I think i'll send in a job application up to Browns stadium...i certainly could do better.

Here's a reader comment from the online article in "Newsday":

"Now the Jets officially have the worst left handed and right handed quarterbacks in the leauge."


(gotta love the Jet fans!)

NY is the perfect place for the tebow circus.

Believe the actual trade is NY's 4th and 6th round picks for Tebow and Denver's 7th round pick.

wonder if they did that just to block the patriots from picking him up. i don't see how he fits into the NY offense tbh, and even though dirty sanchez sucks, hes still way better than tebow

I find it funny that Jets fans are praising Tebow as if he was the second coming when, before he was a part of their team, they threw him into the fire and made fun of him over the Manning situation. Hypocrites.

Its really becoming a laughing stock, even the NFL needs a bit of humor.
