At the end of last season, it would have been unfathomable to think that Tim Tebow would begin the following season with a different team. But after signing Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos no longer had a need for Tebow, and John Elway had perfect opening to deal him. In return for fourth- and sixth-round picks, Denver will ship Tebow (and a seventh-round pick) to the New York Jets.
For the Jets, there were a couple reasons to make this deal. And they have to do with more than the buzz factor.
Gary Horton of Scouts Inc. breaks down the Tim Tebow deal, noting that it makes sense for both sides. However, the Jets should be wary of the circus Tebow could bring to town.
