After landing the most sought-after free agent in the NFL–Peyton Manning–the Denver Broncos are now rumored to be considering trading quarterback Tim Tebow rather than having him back up Manning, even after he helped lead them to the playoffs in 2011. The trade rumors have Tebow fans in an uproar and have garnered claims that he is being treated unfairly, since he was only given the chance to prove himself for a year. But it isn’t as if he’ll be cut loose for long; according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there are already some teams interested in picking up the young player.

The Jacksonville Jaguars may be the team to watch as this plays out, since their location alone may be reason enough for Tebow to choose them. Brad Culpepper, former NFL defensive tackle and ex-Florida Gator, is good friends with Tim, and he and his wife, Monica, say they wouldn’t be surprised if that’s where Tebow ended up.

“Brad and I just had dinner with Tim last week and I don’t think this comes as a shock or surprise to him that Manning was actually going to go there,” Monica said in an interview. “And in all honesty, Tim said, ‘I miss home. I miss the South. And hopefully I’ll land somewhere in Florida.’ I sure hope Jacksonville takes him because he’s such a great kid, such a good player and would be so thrilled to come back to the South.”

Tebow’s teammates seem to be in full support of the direction they are moving in, led by John Elway. Linebacker Von Miller said, “As far as what Mr. Elways is doing, that is what you have to be doing to be successful in this league,” he said. “You can’t just put all your eggs in one basket. It’s all up to Tim. In my opinion, I feel like he can get it done. But, looking at it from Mr. Elway’s point of view, you always got to be defining your options. What’s the next thing? And that’s just how the league is today.”

Twitter reaction was mixed at first, but Tebow has quite a loyal following of fans and they have supported him through his changes over the years. Some Denver fans are now questioning where their own loyalties lie and some say that if these rumors are true, they will have to re-evaluate their support for the Broncos.

The young athlete definitely has a lot of people in his corner, from fans to the companies he works as a spokesman for. They’re making it clear that no matter where his career takes him, they will be behind him; Jockey issued a statement to TMZ yesterday when the rumor mill first began to churn, saying, “Jockey brought Tim Tebow on as a spokesperson before he took his first professional snap and even before he finalized his contract with an NFL team. Jockey supports him 100% and we look forward to continuing our great relationship with Tim.”

    So true….Thats a CLASSIC…..LOLOL

  • jesus

    he should go with the cardinals now that would be unstoppable.

  • David

    Tebow is down for anything. He is not being a baby about anything. You don’t hear Tebow saying a word to the press, dogging the Broncos,or getting drunk and arrested. Tebow is a stand up guy with a lot of potential and athleticism. I have a feeling he is going to most likely land in Miami or Jacksonville, the only question is which team wants him more. He could go with any team willing to make a trade with Denver, but Jacksonville and Miami wanting him as a possible starter would be more willing to put up a better trade than a team that would use him as a backup like New England or Philly. Cleveland could be in there as well, but I just don’t see that happening. He would be a risk and they already have one of thise (McCoy)

  • fredmcmurray

    Hello 666? you ran away? surprised I figured you were a zionist so easily? lol

  • Becky

    When my 7yr. old son hears of this news, I wonder if he will still choose the Broncos when he plays his Madden WII Football game on T.V.? He adores Tim Tebow and his Christian way of life. Tebow is a true role model!

  • Skip Gmitter

    Elway is a spineless jerk. Like he was a great quarterback right out og college. Some of us Denver fans remember!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pat J

    “God Bless Tim Tebow.” He is a good man. A good role model for the people… They might make fun of him, but Mr. Tebow has guts.. Good Luck Tim Tebow…

  • Ted

    I hope New England gets him as a backup/special plays QB. Tim isnt a great passer but he is a winner (he finds a way to win). A lot of quarterbacks play good when theres no pressure, but when its really counts i.e. 4th quarter, they blow it.

  • paul

    You Tebow fans need to take off the rose colored jesus juice glasses. The guy is a terrible QB. He has an extremley low FOOTBALL I.Q. not to mention he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer. He is soooooooo limited as aplayer..his skills best fit as a fullback. I would want him as such on my team-but as a QB he is horrible. Last season was a FLUKE!And anyone can look back a the wins and see the other teams best players were injured, stupid players made dumb mistakes, and his play got worse as the season went on! And JESUS AND RELIGION is an Opinion, there is nothing factual at all about it. No facts, no proof, and it’s usually the mentaly challenged like TIm Tebow and others who buy into that b.s.! I could care less about religion-this is about Football, and Tebow isn’t even an average QB on his best day…and that is the TRUTH!!!

    • Ann

      Stand and let God move!

  • Lynda

    We would love to have Tebow back in FL :)

  • Joel

    Way to go Denver! $100M over five years for maybe two years with a broken FORMER MVP level QB. While we are at it why not can our QB from last year that dug us out of the pit and into the playoffs. Pat Bowlen and John Elway, thanks for allowing us to maybe have one good year before a return to mediocrity.

    • Benjamin

      You are uninformed.

  • Bill

    I am glad to see Jockey still supports him.A guy needs all the support he can get from his underwear especially in football.

  • http://facebook carole mcmanus

    I hope tim goes to Jacksonville. He is such a good Man & a good Quarterback. Give him a little more time & he will be a GREAT Quarterback. Where ever he goes I will be rooting for him. Love u Man U were a GATOR so that makes u great in my book!!!

  • DG

    You guys kill me, I thought this was about Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos, not Christians and non Christians???

    What has Tim Tebow said about all of this??

  • tyler

    holy crap you really wanna know if tebow is good look at his stat sheet the defense was hot and cold all year tebow is a good guy but as a qb his stats show hes a bad qb they were 8-8 and by a miricle beat the steelers tebow will never win a superbowl with his arm

  • Matt Butler

    Tim tebow is a force of competitive nature. #FreeTebow. In all reality he should go to Jacksonville.

  • Alex

    Tebow is not a free agent and cannOt decide to go anywhere. He can only be traded and will be traded to whomever the broncos choose. He has absolutely no say in the matter. He’s gonna be fine tho. Football isn’t his only life goal. All these atheists are just jealous that a Christian has more money than them.

  • R. Martin

    Elway was a good QB in his day BUT
    he positively STINKS (in my opinion)
    as a trader of personnel. How many
    years does he expect Manning to still
    be above average? Maybe he thinks Manning
    will be productive at age 55 when he’ll
    get 10% Senior Citizen discounts at fast
    food joints. Trading a young up and comer
    like Tebow for a soon to be HAS BEEN like
    Manning is super stupid and extremely
    short-sighted on Elway’s part. I say fire John,
    not Tebow!

    • DG

      True Dat!!!

  • Steve

    The best thing for Denver to do is hang on to Tim and have him under Peyton’s wing, teaching him as much as he can. We already know Tim can play .But having these two guys would really throw off the defense. The offense knows Tim and he could be used to cushion Peyton, take the heat off him, if he gets wore out in a game. Then when Peyton’s contract is up, they will have a starter that well groomed. a win/win.

  • rhedd00

    I liked Tebow when I first saw him play because he reminded me of John Elway, and I liked that he was daring. We can use religion all day concerning this, but we must realize that all professional leagues will use you like a dish rag. I have always been a Tebow fan and was excited when he went to Denver, but I had enough sense to know that Tebow wasn’t gonna stay in Denver very long because of the friction with him and the office, and Tebow knew that Elway statements were lukewarm concerning him. Sometimes its best to move on and be nourished into a good player somewhere else, than to constantly move up hill and prove ya worth to someone that will never except you. I am glad he is being traded and he did something Jay Cutler nor Kyle Orton could….led the team to the playoffs

  • Ron

    They get what they deserve. Tebow will be the winner.

  • Dan

    weould like to see Tebow show them all up and do great either for the Bronco”s or some other team, Dan

  • joe

    whats all the fuss? tebow sucks… end of story. it’s about time they tell him to get his bible and get the f@#* out.

    • kev

      emotional comment, but out of place in a calm, rational, intelligent blog.

  • andre moore

    I think football and religion should be two seperate things entirely. Now i believe in God and all but im not overly religious either. everyone is entitle to their opinion, but from the games i watched i would say that time tebow is not a very good player. not saying he couldnt be, he just isnt now. as for Manning im not sure going to the broncos was such a good idea but what do i know.

  • Pete

    If Tebow is traded the Broncos can forget ever having me as a fan again!

  • Tim In Indy

    Tebowmania is DEAD!!! The nation has been saved. Tough to get smacked down isn’t it you football ignorants who don’t have a clue what it takes to play QB in the NFL.

  • http://yahoo Lois Fleming

    are they for real?

  • GrumpyGrampy

    Maybe the fish, Tim and Matt Moore would be a super combo, put them in the same backfield and you’ve got a runnin gun and a strong arm downfield. Defense will go nuts trying to cover for both at once. Tim’s not afraid to give himself to the team body and soul which the fish should look on as a gift from Heaven. Cantankerous not stupid, Gramps

  • GrumpyGrampy

    Tim has talent and heart. He’ll be an asset that Tony Sparano can tool into a hall of famer, Elway can eat his heart out at the result, a two gun offense will put the ‘Fins in the super bowl. It will revolutionize the game. Let’s see what happens.

  • http://yahoo.com jerseygirl

    First I want to say to all Bronco fans of Tim Tebow that I understand how you all feel about the possibility of his being traded. I feel the same about Peyton Manning. No one in Indianapolis wanted Jim Irsey to let Peyton go. All the fans in Indy love Peyton. But all you arm chair coach’s need to realize something If Peyton didn’t still have what it takes no one would be looking. And Trading Tim is primarily a money issue.

  • Rick Hanson

    I think Denver needs their heads examined!! But we would welcome a Quarterback like Tebow in Minnesota with open arms!!

  • Kevin

    If “Broncos” fans are questioning there loyalty at there loss of Tim Tebow then I would suggest they are not Broncos fans at all but rather “Tebow” fans. Although there is nothing wrong with this, it is the Tebow fans questioning the signing of Manning. Most rabid Broncos fans seem to be in favor of the immediate upside of this deal. Although he certainly had the team winning I would suggest as an outsider it was your tremendous defense that kept the team winning. Comebacks aside, perhaps if your QB had put more then 7 points on the board in the first 58 minutes a comeback would not have been necessary and how truly superior your defense could have been had they been on the field for only 24 minutes a game instead of the 40 they found themselves doing quite often due to a lack of offense.

    denver wont make playoffs manning leaves nfl on a stretcher unfortunate end to a great baller horse face gets run out of denver on a rail tebow benifits which ever team picks him up for many years sure hope it is a fl team

  • reliable skeptic

    Look, let’s just move on, shall we? Everyone knows there’s just no room for Jesus in the NFL (or in the inn, for that matter). Let’s try to keep simple-minded theological concepts out of these really complex X’s and O’s.

  • reliable skeptic

    Truth is, Tebow could just as easily have a career- or season-ending injury as Peyton. In fact, it’s even more likely, because he scrambles and heads downfield sometimes. Denver will pick up another young quarterback, one who can throw with a lot more discipline and effectiveness than Tebow. And would probably be better off in Florida. He would fill the stadium in Jax.

  • Manning Fan

    Hello everyone…Just wanted to say that I have been an Indianapolis Colts fan for years and years and I am a Peyton Manning Fan all the way! I Live in Indiana. I truly understand how all the Denver fans are feeling. Just to answer one of the questions that was asked ” if Manning is so great why did the colts let him go” Have you ever heard of the history of Jim Irsay???? Irsay should have never let Manning go, I believe it will come back to bite Irsay and the Colts, I believe Irsay should have kept Manning and got his 1st round draft pick and let him learn under Manning. Just as I feel that Tim Tebow should be able to stay in Denver, he could learn from manning. I feel Peyton and Tim are a lot alike. I enjoyed watching Tim this year, I have always liked the Bronos. But The Broncos got to the playoffs as a team, not just by Tim, he did make a lot of mistakes, but so do a lot of first time starters. Personally I can’t wait to watch Irsay’s new team get their behinds kicked. Listen, I would stay a Colts fan but I don’t believe in what they did to Peyton for all he and his team mates have done for the team. I understand business, but there was a much better way to handle this and Irsay is just an a_ _! I feel sorry for the players who stay there, although most of the good ones have either been let go or are leaving. I believe the Broncos should keep Tim, he is a promising, up and coming QB, just needs more experience. I pray that Manning stays safe and that he does as great of a job for Denver and its fans as he did for Indianapolis and the Colts fans. I hope Denver fans come to love Peyton as their QB as much as we Colts Fans (or should I say ex- Colts fans) did here in Indiana!

    • Dave

      I totally agree! I am from colorado and have been a broncos fan ever since i could understand football. That time elway was the star. If anybody watched the games, tim did make a few mistakes here and there, but also at times he had no time to throw the ball due to the offensive line. That is not his fault but the blame is thrown in his direction. What ever happened to TEAM? I believe in great qb’s but I also believe in great TEAMS. I think they should keep tim and let him hone his ability under a great qb. As one day tim will evolve and be one as well. Oh yeah, just let the guys play some damn football will ya?

  • Paul C

    Have I mentioned how much I dislike Elway?

  • Gator

    Would like to see the bucs or jags pick him up. Fan of both. Bucs need more help

  • Lbryson

    Tim Tebow is a true leader!!! He will be the best at whatever he does and or whereever he goes. Elway can really learn alot from Tim Tebow such, loyalty, character and integrity. And yes Tim Tebow will arise and SHINE…he (TIM) will raise up!! Jesus will truly make sure of that!! Better is the ending of a thing than the beginning. Tim Tebow will meet up with John Elway again. However,…this time, only to have John Elway left with GRAVEL IN HIS MOUTH!!! OWEEE OH….TE…..BOW!!!!!!

  • MickeyD

    ALL committed Christians (like Tebow) are insulted and made fun of everyday.

  • MickeyD

    Tebow will do well wherever he goes.

  • mjh

    Really it will hit the salary cap more if they trade tebow.
    Why you don’t keep him is because of the wacko, think they know more about football than john elway & everyone else in the NFL fans of tebow. No team wants to put up with that in the NFL.
    You’d be very suprised about how the whole NFL feels about him only because of his fans. I promise you don’t understand the damage you’ve done to his career with the actions of his fans.

  • bob barnett

    Denver is making a huge mistake in not ” double teaming” Tebow-Manning shared QB roles in the coming NFL season.If Manning at 37 gets tired or injured in a game then T-bow can run in fully prepped and ready to lead the offensive team and plays.T-bow has youth going for him, he needs experience in field and team leadership, these Manning has in super abundance to teach T-bow. Bob

  • Bruce

    I love Manning but trading away Tebow was a classic mistake. Elway just plain doesn’t like Tebow. He appears to be insulted by Tebow’s lack of mechanics. Get over it Elway, Tebow wins. Manning will come on strong but and make the playoffs but there won’t be a super bowl in Denver. Tebow is going to bring mania wherever he goes and that will give fans something to cheer for.

  • http://yahoo SRB

    The Broncos are making a mistake.

  • caitmom



    I think that Denver should keepTebow as a backup quaterback because they’re gonna need him the first time Manning gets hit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i say no more
