Posted on 03/21/2012 7:42:01 AM PDT by Perdogg
Teams that have discussed a trade for quarterback Tim Tebow, either internally or with the Denver Broncos, include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
While one league source says the Dolphins are not likely to deal for Tebow, two sources told ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini on Tuesday night the Jets' interest in Tebow has intensified.

I hope he choses Jacksonville.
Peyton Manning is 36. It’s nuts to trade Tebow, IMO.
There’s gotta be a market out there for a backup TE who, give the guy credit, ain’t afraid of getting hit.
I don’t know why Denver would trade Tbow. Can you imagine 3rd downs inside the 5 ? Manning takes the snap, hands off to Tbow, who either dives into the line or throws a jump pass to a tight end or maybe Manning fakes to Tbow and throws a fade to the corner or maybe lasers a slant pass to a tight end.
It would be a nightmare for any defense.
Amen to that!
Season tickets would sell out in less than a week.
And the Jags would change their colors to Blue and Orange.
FL - 24
OK - 14
Buffalo..!! Buffalo..!! Buffalo..!! Buffalo..!!
(we need a prayer)
The Jacksonville fans want him bad! Let’s hope that the team owners see to it that it happens.
Nobody will want him!
I do too. He'd be a good fit there.
36 with a neck held together by JB Weld. I don’t even think Manning should be risking his health by playing again. How much money do you need? If Tebow leaves, who’s Manning’s backup? KO? Please.
The Broncos may draft a backup.
Orton is in Dallas now. When Tebow is traded the Broncos will be one good sack of Manning away from having Brady Quinn as their starting QB.
Sometimes people forget that Tebow is a winner. I like to remind them.
If I’m reading the papers right, Quinn has already gone to KC.
I’m hoping this whole episode blows-up in the face of those anti-Christian bigots in Denver; Elway especially.
Why, you ask?
Because obviously someone did what coach Myer didn't do for him at Florida, sat him down and explained to him the difference between a heartfelt prayer on the sideline and a fit of screaming rage at his own teammates, or taunting players on opposing teams, and what the possible result could be in the NFL.
Along with that, Denver won more games with him at QB that I thought they would. Fair is fair.
My opinion is that his style of play for a QB in the NFL is not exactly a healthy thing, not for him nor his team, who needs consistency at the QB position. I wonder what John Elway thinks.
I'm also weary of the "Tim Tebow is the only Christian who has ever played football and that's why God loves him more than anyone else in the stadium" hype, which makes it difficult to separate the hype from the guy's value to his team. I've never heard Tebow object to the hype either, which he should have done sometime before someoneoranother called him "God's quarterback."
And since I'm always fair all the time, I'll say that I wish him the best if he goes to the Jets. If he can succeed as a witness to The Lord's word in that town he'll be doing some good, even if he's on the bench.
How's that? :)
