Looks like it all happened so fast. Broncos release Tim Tebow for Draft Picks... Looks like New York is about to get a taste of Tebowism - East Coast Style..!
Judging by reactions on Facebook, Jets fans are not happy about this.
From a personnel perspective, it's a low-risk move. They are basically just giving up the equivalent of an early 4th round draft pick for Tebow (the Broncos get the Jets 4th round pick and 6th round pick, and give up a 7th round pick along with Tebow). From a merchandising perspective, Tebow is gold. They'll probably sell millions of dollars worth of green Tebow jerseys. From a team chemistry perspective, this could be devastating. Mark Sanchez already had people questioning his ability, and now Tebow comes to town. Jets management has created a QB controversy where there wasn't one before. Jets players as recently as yesterday were saying the team doesn't need Tebow because Mark Sanchez is just fine. What does this move say about management's confidence in its starting QB?
I have no insight to the Jets thinking on this, but I would not be surprised to see Tebow playing QB in the Wildcat, and as a WR in goal line offense.
All I know is I'd love to have Tebow on my team. He works hard. His attitude is unbelievable. He wins.
Sanchez has been close the last few years to getting benched. I think Tebow will be fine, but Sanchez may have trouble adjusting.
Lin and Tim. What else does NYC need?
Plus the media!
I am sure Tebow can adjust with any team - negative or positive fans, media or just hecklers!! Mark Sanchez is a level headed guy as well, never seen him hug the limelight and talk amidst all what is happening there!! The two can perhaps support each other with whatever the coach decision on who is going to play as the QB!
Hold the phone...this just posted by ESPN.
"ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos and the Jets have encountered a hangup in the language in Tebow’s contract that could nullify the trade. Schefter cites a Broncos source as saying the hangup could keep the trade from happening."

It seems odd to me that this would leak to the press as a done deal before these details had been worked out. I wonder if they did this intentionally to see what fan reaction would be. On my Facebook feed it was overwhelmingly negative, with more than one Jets fan saying they were considering becoming Bills fans. That's some serious dislike for a guy who at most would be a backup/specialty situation quarterback.
I think the Jets is the wrong choice. Jacksonville would be better mainly because Gabbert has not totally won over the team and Tebow has a chance for the starting job. In New York, the locker room is too split and would not be as welcoming as the Broncos locker room.
The days of Rex Ryans telling his team to play like a Jet are now over . . new words out of his mouth will be pray like a Jet. ..
and this is one Jet fan who would rather see playing then praying.
Tannenbaum and Ryan have one last chance to bring Lombardi back to the Meadowlands. .. and the way these guys are making deals the only way Lombardi will be in New York next year is when the Giants do it again in Super Bowl 47 . . .

I really want to see Tebow play. It's not enough that the Jets can't run the ball or pass it for Tebow to play significantly. What will it take. If he comes in and runs the table, the Jets could be a...

The Titans, Bills and Jags need QB help. I hope this creates an opportunity to see Tebow play this year.

Now that we're seeing both extremes, can we finally come to the middle and properly evaluate Tim Tebow?
