The Broncos sent Tebow and a seventh-round pick to the Jets in exchange for a fourth- and sixth-round pick, the Denver Post is reporting. This is quite a slide considering he was a first-round draft choice just two years ago.
Tebowmania was probably the biggest story in the 2011 NFL season. He took a franchise that was floundering and led them to six straight wins as well as a dramatic playoff victory. But Tebow’s style and accuracy never meshed with GM John Elway’s demands.
With the Jets, Tebow will likely just be a back up QB Mark Sanchez and used in certain situations.
