    • John Clayton was saying something about Tebow to the Patriots but that may just be over-selling the Josh McDaniels connection.

      • NE just signed Fells, what would they need Tebow for?

        • Maybe to get God on their side. Obviously they've needed something the last few years.
          Now that Kidiot has fled and Spicer still hasn't, I'd just like to remind people that anyone that wouldn't attend the marriage of their own child just because they were gay, is the worst kind of crappy parent.

            • Jacksonville's owner is said to be all hot for Tebow. They have no one worthwhile and badly need to put fannies in the seats. Tebow would definitely do that in Florida.

              • And then move Gabbert? This is getting silly.

                • Probably can't be moved. Gabbert really sucked. Out of all the rookie starters in 2011, he was clearly the worst, and showed very little improvement over the course of the season.

                  • Should have known that when Denver seemed to fall behind and it became the 4th quarter that Elway would pull it off...Should have known...

                    • This reminds me of the musical chairs that colleges do with coaches after the NCAA tournament. UNC gets Roy Williams, so Bill Self goes to Kansas so Bruce Weber goes to Illinois so Matt Painter is promoted to head coach at Southern Illinois...

                      • So if Weber goes back to SIU, does that mean Painter has to take the Illinois job?

                          A team owned by a Muslim will have Tebow at QB.

                            Tebow is incredible in short yardage. I'm sure Belichick wouldn't mind another goal-line weapon. They don't NEED him but hey, if you can get him cheap...

                            Remember, if there's one thing Belichick loves, it's versatile guys he can use in many different ways.

                            • Maybe reasonably cheap to trade for, but he still has to be paid under his rookie contract. Tebow hit some contract escalators...

                              Tebow's contract isn't going to be easy to move with escalators pushing his 2013-2014 salaries to $6.05 million and $7.14 million.
                              So (assuming Elway and Fox want to move him, which I believe is the basis for the Manning pursuit), Denver will probably not be able to play hardball in trade talks. All that's needed is a team with cap space, a need at QB, and a willingness to put up with the circus sideshow aspect of it all.

                              • Jacksonville fits the bill doesn't it? The money will be more than made up by butts in the seats (Jacksonville is like 2 hrs from Gainesville, IIRC) and merchandise sales.
