Report: Broncos Looking to Trade Tebow Once Manning Deal Finalized

Monday March 19th, 2012

Once Peyton Manning’s contract is finalized, the Denver Broncos will be seeking to trade away quarterback Tim Tebow, according to ESPN.

On Monday, Manning called Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway to inform him that he had instructed his agent Tom Condon to intensify contract negotiations to finalize becoming the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos which could mean the end of Tebow Time in Denver.

Currently, there have not been any reports of which teams would be interested in making a trade to acquire the former Florida Gator and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner quarterback.

Last season, Tebow led the Broncos to an 8-8 record and AFC West title.  In the playoffs, Tebow threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in overtime to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round.
