After word spread rapidly Wednesday that the New York Jets had acquired quarterback Tim Tebow from Denver for draft picks, the teams have encountered a hang-up in the language in Tebow's contract that could nullify the trade, a Broncos source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Tebow has about $5 million worth of recapture language in his contract, meaning the Jets would have to pay back some money to Denver, and the Jets might be unwilling to do that.
The trade, then, is not finalized.

And he looked good in pantyhose!
Yup. Almost certainly correct.
I said last year Tebow wouldn't even last long in Denver, and he is already on his way out the door.
theyll just be inviting a media circus/quarterback controversy
Yes, because so many people are supporting Tebow because they like his personal life decisions rather than whether he actually has the talent to be a franchise quarterback. The result will be endless quarterback controversies with many fans refusing to accept he simply isn't good enough to invest in for the long term.
Except Sanchez and Tebow have identical QB ratings after their first 2 years in the NFL. And Tebow rushed for almost a thousand yards more than Sanchez in those 2 years. BTW, do you know what kind of offense the Jets run?
Throw in Dawkins and we would welcome him like a king in philly....
Drunk and hanging all over women. And we are stuck with Brady. I long for the good ole days.
Tebow isn’t the best quarterback to be sure. But he is the best team captain in the game. No one can rally a team like he can.
Just because you don’t like him doesn’t make him a bad quarterback. Two National Championships and a Heisman tell me otherwise as well as leading the Broncos to the playoffs.
The Jets would use him in wildcat formations if that is what you are getting at.
QB rating alone simply doesn't tell the whole story. Mediocre quarterbacks can have good seasons, and quality quarterbacks can have bad seasons for any number of reasons. The ratings alone don't determine whether a franchise wants to invest a lot of time and money in someone.
Tebow has poor quarterback fundamentals. There is probably no way to fix this problem. Does that mean he can't excel in a perfect situation? Certainly not, it is possible. But the odds are against him and I wouldn't want my NFL team taking the risk. There are just too many reasons Tebow could end up being a giant distraction instead of a quality asset to an NFL team.
As someone else said in this thread, I'd bet Tebow is out of the league in less than 5 years. Possibly much less.
Send him to the Cleveland Browns; they could use ANYBODY!
I agree. I’m just tired of people trashing him. I might be a little biased though...
Actually I like him personally a lot. I cheer for him, I was excited to see him lead the Broncos over the Steelers in the playoff game last year. I hope I am wrong. "Like" has nothing to do with it. Tebow simply doesn't have the skill set to be a franchise quarterback, and as a backup he would be too much of a distraction.
Tebow also has better numbers than John Elway, another "not good enough skill set to play in the NFL" loser, apparently, after the same number of games. Yeah Tebow sucks. Just ask the bleacher bums. They know all about it.
I couldn’t believe they let B-Dawk go. Pissed me off.
Yeh, I recall what a running threat Joe was. He couldn't outrun a possum.
I’m a UGA fan, a gator-hater heh. But he’s a good guy.
We’ll see you guys at the Cocktail Party.
Lets keep in mind the media circus was not caused by Tebow. The press has done nothing but skewer him.
I loved, loved, LOVED! that man when I was in high school. One year I had but one item on my Christmas list.... “I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW” :)
