Pack it up Tim Tebow — Peyton Manning’s a Bronco!!!
It seems that Tebow mania just wasn’t enough to keep the Broncos interested, because they just snagged themselves a new QB! Pat Bowlen, the Broncos owner, with John Elway made the announcement that Peyton Manning will, indeed, be rocking some orange.
So, what exactly does that mean? Well, it means that Tim Tebow just got kicked out on his a$$! Tebowing craze or not, Elway was honest during the announcement, stating that the Broncos just aren’t a ‘Super Bowl caliber team with Tim Tebow.’ So, to fix that problem, they decided to give Manning a whopping 96 mil for five years — which now makes him the highest paid player in the league!
And not only that, but Peyton will get to keep his number 18 — which should have been impossible because it was retired in the sixties for legendary quarterback Frank Tripucka. But, Tripucka himself personally asked for his jersey to be un-retired because he WANTED Manning to wear it.!
But… what happens to Tebow now? Well, Manning sure ain’t worried about it. He told the press that he wasn’t sure what was going to become of Tebow, but that he was going to be ‘the best teammate he can be’ whether Tim stays or not.
Elway confirmed that no discussions about trading Tebow have been started yet, but that it was highly probable that Tebow was going to be getting the boot… er, cleat. Whatever.
So, it’s official. But just where is he being shipped off to? Well, multiple teams have been reported to be trying to snag him, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, and New York Jets. Bottom line? Tebow will be Tebowing on another field.
