    TIM TEBOW TRADED TO JETS FOR 4TH ROUND PICK

    TIM TEBOW TRADED TO JETS FOR 4TH ROUND PICK

    "Tebowmania has officially ended in Denver.

    The Broncos traded quarterback Tim Tebow on Wednesday to the New York Jets for a fourth-round draft
    choice, FOXSports.com has learned.</p>


    The deal – which was facilitated by Denver’s signing of Peyton Manning to a five-year, $96
    million contract – spells the end to one of the wildest chapters in the
    franchise’s 52-year history.</p>


    One of the NFL’s most popular players since being drafted by the Broncos in
    2010, Tebow was promoted into the starting lineup ahead of the struggling Kyle
    Orton six games into last season. Although the unorthodox Tebow completed only
    46.5 percent of his passes, his penchant for big plays and late-game heroics
    helped propel Denver to an AFC West title and first-round overtime playoff
    victory against Pittsburgh. Tebow also helped energize a Broncos fan base that
    was becoming increasingly frustrated at the franchise’s ineptitude over the
    previous two seasons.</p>


    Tebow, though, didn’t show enough promise as a traditional NFL quarterback to
    convince Broncos management that he had the potential to become a franchise
    quarterback. Even after Broncos executive vice president John Elway told
    FOXSports.com in December that he was looking forward to hands-on work with
    Tebow during the offseason, Denver quickly entered the bidding for Manning
    following his release from Indianapolis earlier this month. Manning chose the
    Broncos over a slew of other strongly interested suitors that included
    Tennessee, San Francisco, Miami and Arizona.</p>


    Tebow has three seasons remaining on his five-year, $9.8 million rookie
    contract. According to rotoworld.com, Tebow is scheduled to collect a base
    salary of $1.1 million in 2012."</p>
