Broncos’ Von Miller “Positive” Tim Tebow Wouldn’t Mind Competing With Peyton Manning

Thursday March 15th, 2012

Denver Broncos linebacker and NFL defensive rookie of the year Von Miller tweeted his support for the team's pursuit of free-agent quarterback Peyton Manning on Wednesday night, saying that he’d “take a huge pay cut” to get both Manning and free-agent defensive end Mario Williams and that current starting quarterback Tim Tebow “wouldn’t mind” competing with Manning.

Miller, who led the Broncos with 11.5 sacks last season, also added that he would “play this season for free” if the team could get both Williams and Manning.

The Broncos are one of the teams that Manning visited and the team feels that it has a “95% chance” to sign the star quarterback. Manning, however, also plans on visiting with Miami and Tennessee and already met with Arizona. Williams is currently visiting the Buffalo Bills. While Tebow has not commented on the possibility of adding Manning, former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese called the signing “very realistic” and believes that Tebow and Manning could coexist in Denver.
