New York Jets traded for Denver quarterback Tim Tebow on Wednesday, but the unexpected transaction looked for much of the day like an embarrassing fumble. New York agreed to deal for the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, but the trade nearly fell through because the Jets did not realize they would need to reimburse the Broncos for $5.1 million in advance salaries paid to Tebow for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons. That problem reportedly has been resolved, with the Jets agreeing to pay half of the compensation back to the Broncos. The Broncos will receive fourth- and sixth-round draft picks for Tebow, and New York will receive a seventh-round selection. Tebow has three years left on the $11.25-million, five-year contract he signed as a rookie in 2010, with base salaries of $1.1 million in 2012, $1.055 million in 2013 and $895,000 in 2014. “Our goal was to do the best thing for Tim and the Broncos, and I believe the opportunity that presented itself with the New York Jets accomplishes that objective,” said John Elway, Denver’s vice president of football operations. “Tim made a lot of strides last year and has a very promising career ahead of him. If anyone is willing to put the work in to be great, it is Tim Tebow.” You can log on our Online NFL Shop and select our best quality Tim Tebow Jets Jersey and New York Jets Jerseys if you are die-hard fans of Tim Tebow and New York Jets.
