Tebow to Jets
March 22, 2012
It’s “Tebow Time” in New York. The New York Jets pulled off a big time trade on the Wednesday afternoon of March 22, 2012 to snag the former Denver Broncos quarterback who took the sports world by surprise late last season. Tebow became expendable to John Elway and the Broncos when they signed Pro-Bowl QB Peyton Manning on Tuesday. Tebow, reportedly was given the choice of selecting his next team, and many believed he would choose the Jacksonville Jaguars since he grew up there. The Jets, Rams, and Packers also showed interest in the young quarterback but ultimately he was sent to the Jets for a 4th and 6th round draft pick in the 2012 draft.
