Denver Broncos trade Tim Tebow the New York Jets

The Denver Broncos have traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets for a 4th round draft pick.

Broncos trade Tim Tebow to Jets for fourth-round pick

Tim Tebow is headed to the Jets, and New York is sending the Broncos a fourth-round pick in exchange, the team has announced. New York also will receive a sixth-round pick in exchange for Denver’s seventh-round selection.

It’s a bold move by the Jets – both for the sake of fan interest and locker room chemistry – and Tebow gets a chance to be reborn in the most media-frenzied NFL city.

So, what does this mean for Mark Sanchez? Well, it means he could lose his starting job to Tebow, though that seems unlikely.* After all, the Jets just gave him a three-year contract extension worth $40.5 million, and it seems unlikely that New York would give up on Sanchez so quickly after making such a big commitment to him.

*Of course, it seemed rather unlikely that Tebow would take over for Kyle Orton and then lead the Broncos to the playoffs last year, so really it’s not out of the realm of possibilities.

But as’s Clark Judge wrote on Tuesday, the move to New York actually makes sense for the Jets.

With Tony Sparano as the new offensive coordinator, the Jets could turn Tebow into the latest edition of the Wildcat quarterback. Though we all roll our eyes at that formation now, it worked for a while when Sparano was the head coach in Miami.

    This is God testing Tebow, by sending him to the Rotten Apple where he will be sorely-afflicted by merciless media and ravenous jock-sniffing skanks.

    I wish the boy well. He’s a fine human being. I just wish he could throw the ball a little better.
