Default Broncos Tell Teams Inquiring About QB Tim Tebow "Make Offer They Won't Refuse"

There are rumors quickly spreading that the Denver Broncos may trade or cut second year quarterback Tim Tebow, which is alarming many fans in Denver. The rumors are unsound however, as can be observed below: Head Coach John Fox, Vice President John Elway and General Manager Brian Xanders all have supported Tebow, and continue to do so. They simply told teams inquiring about Tebow to make them "an offer they couldn't refuse", which is a far cry from placing him on the trading block. Following this season, starting quarterback Kyle Orton and back-up Brady Quinn will be free agents; Tebow will have three years and $6,798,750 (just over $6.7 million dollars) left on his contract. Denver will continue to evaluate Tebow and give him his due opportunities.

I'm going to start reporting people for new tebow threads as spam.

make an offer on ANY player (besides doom and von) on this team thats good enough and a trade will happen, why is this news?

if someone offers a 1st and 3rd for tebow, im sorry but that is an offer you cant refuse, even if you WANT to keep him to see if he can develop. same with orton and quinn.

I really appreciate the bolded part. All those commas and numbers in a row confused me initially, but they cleared it up.

With Fox, Elway and Xanders at the helm a couple cigars, 30 pack of Coors and some pepperoni pizza would probably be the offer they couldn't refuse.

I don't have time to wait 5 years for him to become a starter.

Hopefully, the Rams come calling with 5 first rounders and Steven Jackson.

Hell, I'd throw in Moreno to sweeten the deal.

Maybe it's the "can't teach an old dog new tricks" issue with Tebow. I tought he would at least be able to evntually work his way into the lineup, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings one iota if the got something in return for the wasted picks.

Damn... You would have missed out on a few Hall of Famers then with that patience.

Well, to be serious for a moment, if you really read the quote it's more like what the Rox said of Ubaldo. And no team is going to give a one for Tebow.

If Tebow is traded, I'm fully expecting most of the OM to turn into zombies.

Sometimes a bad thing can be good and in contrast, a good thing can be bad.


Tebow jerseys will be at or below the cost of O+B Cutler jerseys.

He'll change his face make up to a Revelations verse and we'll be ****ing done for.

Shanahan curse is clearly potent enough... supplementing that with the wrath of Christ is more than I wanna deal with.

He (Jesus) was to comeback as the "Destroyer", right?

I mean, the Bronco in the logo is a white horse....

It would be great for FLA fans though, the colour scheme is pretty close.
