How long did it take them to trade him?
About 24 hours after Manning said he was coming to Denver.
If the intent was to extract maximum value they would have if nothing else at least played their hand closer to the vest and into the draft. Its not like Caleb Hanie was going somewhere else.
The intent was clearly to make sure that the Manning/Tebow overlap was as small as possible.
