What does this mean for Tebow?
As noted in the link, he's getting traded. I actually want to root for Tebow now, because it sure seems like he's getting a raw deal. (Media hype for Tebow will talk me out of this soon, I'm sure.) It's not impossible he could end up on a better team depending on how this goes down - or he could end up on Jacksonville.
What does this mean for Alex Smith?
$$$$$! Titans will go with what they have, but Miami was already desperate and now the 49ers will be. He's getting over paid for his trouble.
They were saying on ESPN this weekend that when Manning met with John Fox, he told Manning that if he came they'd basically let Manning install his own offense. That might be the reason he's going to denver and not San Fran.

Alex Smith re-signs with 49ers for more money. Dolphins stick with Matt Moore Tim Tebow gets traded to the Patriots and McDaniels and Belichick gets their x factor to work with who will NEVER be a threat to Brady but can do some interesting things.
The best effect of this might be the beefing up of the AFC West. Kansas City and Oakland have to step up if Denver and San Diego develops consistency. Rivers is no longer top dog in that clutch of teams.

If the thread title is referring to Tebow Time, then yes, I agree wholeheartedly.
Originally posted by El NastioIf I were the Broncos I would KEEP Tebow, and have him learn from Manning.
Yeah, I don't get what the Broncos are thinking here. If anyone can turn Tebow into a real quarterback, it'd be Manning. The Broncos are nuts if they think Manning's going to continue on beyond a couple of years. Why not keep Tebow around? It's not like he's going to be a locker room disruption.
But hey, if the Broncos want to wind up high and dry without a quarterback once Peyton retires in a couple of years, that's their prerogative. Ask the Vikings how this strategy is working out for them.
Jaguars will make an offer for Tebow, not a doubt in my mind. Hopefully they're not desperate enough for ticket sales/relevance that they'd move their first-rounder (#7 overall), but I could definitely see Denver accepting a third-rounder.

Considering Fox changed his offense for Tebow, I'd think he'd find a way for Manning.
And about damned time too. http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/SD/7608060 As far as I can tell from this and ESPN's coverage, the total moneys the same as that Rivers rejected earlier but the structuring of incentives is different.
