WHICH TEAM IS THE BEST FIT FOR TIM TEBOW? (http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/03/19/which-team-is-the-best-fit-for-tim-tebow/?ref=football)

"One of the biggest N.F.L. free-agent dramas<a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/20/sports/football/Peyton-Manning-Denver-Broncos.html?hp">
is over</a>, but it leads right into another off-season potboiler.<div id="entry-101787" class="post-101787 post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-uncategorized tag-broncos tag-jaguars tag-peyton-manning tag-tim-tebow entry "><div class="entry-content">


Where does Tim Tebow go?</p>


It’s hard to imagine that the most popular Bronco of last season, and one of
the most popular players in recent N.F.L. history, <a href="http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_20206618/peyton-manning-picks-broncos-contract-close">may
need to find a new address.</a> But it probably makes the most sense to trade
Tebow now that Peyton Manning <a href="http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/7709195/2012-nfl-free-agency-peyton-manning-picks-denver-broncos-tim-tebow-traded">has
decided to sign</a> with Denver. (It wouldn’t be surprising if one of Manning’s
conditions for choosing Denver was a trade of Tebow — to minimize distractions,
at the very least.)</p>


It would be a relief for the Broncos executive John Elway and Coach John Fox
to focus on just football, and that’s partly what makes trading Tebow a
challenge. Tebow would carry some baggage with him on the way out of Denver
International Airport, despite his pristine reputation. His passionate fans <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/30/play-tebow-billboard-goes_n_989277.html">could
create a nuisance</a> for a front office and coaching staff if Tebow doesn’t
play. And Tebow has yet to prove that he can throw consistently well at the
N.F.L. level.</p>


But there will be suitors.<a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/peyton-manning-denver-whats-happens-tim-tebow-161337041.html">Chris
Chase of Shutdown Corner at Yahoo Sports took a look at three</a>, and here are
brief excerpts:</p>


Jacksonville: “Bringing in Tebow would create buzz and sell
tickets to a stadium that’s often littered with empty seats.”</p>


New England: “Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted
Tebow to the Broncos in 2010, the team has a surplus of draft picks and Bill
Belichick has that ‘crazy as a fox’ reputation that would enjoy the hoopla of
trying to make Tebow fit into an offense with Tom Brady.”</p>


Miami: “It wouldn’t be a quarterback derby if the Miami
Dolphins didn’t get involved, then fail to land their target.”</p>


Last week, Darren Rovell of CNBC said sending Tebow to Jacksonville would be
the off-season move<a href="http://www.cnbc.com/id/46731713"> “that has the best
chance to move the most money.” </a>Tebow grew up in Jacksonville and played
college football about an hour and a half away, in Gainesville.</p>
<blockquote>


The Jaguars are one of eight N.F.L. teams that had less than 93 percent of
its seats filled (92.8%) last season, but when you consider that a tarp covers
up more than 9,000 seats, the percentage capacity is actually 81 percent. That
means that, outside of Cincinnati (which had 75.2% capacity), the Jacksonville
Jaguars had the worst average attendance on a capacity basis.</p>


“There would be a huge opportunity for the Jaguars to capture the Gators fans
within a two- to three-hour drive who occasionally buy tickets,” said Patrick
Ryan, co-owner of the Ticket Experience, a sports ticket brokerage in
Houston.</p></blockquote>


Extra pointReality check: The Jaguars<a href="http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/en_fuego/2012/03/manning-to-broncos-should-mean-tebow-to-dolphins.html">
recently signed Chad Henne</a>, and they drafted Blaine Gabbert with the 10th
overall pick last season. Beyond cash considerations, which team is the best
fit for Tebow? And is there a case to be made for keeping him in
Denver?"</p></div></div>

I see Jax. He should go to Buffalo as well.....
But I could see those teams actually wanting tebow to succeed.

IDK....Broncos should keep him and put him in a H-back role. Move him around a lot he could become a very valuable weapon for Peyton and the O. People say he is a team player, so he shouldn't have an issue with it.
