Report: Tim Tebow Trade To New York Jets Is Off Until Saturday
You probably are not going to believe me, but the Tim Tebow trade to the New York Jets is off again. However, it should be completed on Saturday. Due to some complicated language in his contract, Tebow must remain on the Denver Broncos salary cap for 24 hours and then he will be traded on Saturday, once he agrees to a brand new contract.
The Jets have postponed their press conference until Monday. This trade is perfect for Tebow, in the sense that it is spiraling out of control. It has taken on a life of its own and it seems to be self-sustaining. Just like Tebowmania has been.
I doubt that the deal is cancelled, but the suspense is still building. Every day that the deal is not done gives it a chance to unravel. It would be a first, but I don’t believe that it would exactly shock everyone. I know that I am expecting anything and everything to happen with this trade.
We assume this gets done, but you never never know.
Elway said Broncos gave Tebow a choice
Elway, in an interview Thurdsay on 102.3 ESPN radio in Denver, said Jacksonville’s offer was actually worth slightly more than the offer from the Jets. Jacksonville’s draft slot is 10 places higher than the Jets in each round.
“There was more from Jacksonville, but I think that we looked at it and it was close enough, and we were in contact with Tim throughout the day, and talked to him,” Elway said. “He knew what was going on the whole time. The reports that he was not involved are not accurate.”
Tebow, in a conference call with New York reporters late Wednesday night, said the Broncos held “all the power.”
Clearly, Tim doesn't want any of his fellow Floridians thinking he chose the bright lights of New York over a chance to head home, right?
