Tim Tebow has been Jetted off to the Jets!!!
As we told you yesterday, Peyton Manning was brought onboard the Denver Broncos, and because of this, we knew it was only a matter of time before Tim Tebow got the official boot. And, it has happened. Tim Tebow is officially a Jet!
The deal almost didn’t happen due to some ‘recapture language,’ which basically means that the Jets would owe the Broncs a pretty penny. But, the deal did come through… though not all are happy about it.
The fans, of course, are a bit confused, but it was the Jets’ cornerback, Antonio Cromartie, who has really gotten vocal about the trade, going to — where else? — Twitter to vent. Last night, Cromartie tweeted ‘We don’t need Tebow. We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami. Our wildcat offense can b ran by J. Kerley or Joe McKnight we straight.’ He later went on to say ‘I don’t know y. We have @Mark_Sanchez and jus signed Drew [Stanton]. Mark has taken us to 2 AFC championship game. We need to build on the team we have now.’
Then, after the deal was done, he added, ’Y bring Tebow in when we need to bring in more Weapons for @Mark_Sanchez let’s build the team around him. We already signed to 3 year ext’.
What he means by that is that the Jets gave their starting QB, Mark Sanchez, a $40.5 million three year contract extension just earlier this month. Yet, now they’ve signed Tebow?
There’s been no word whether Sanchez will be knocked down for Tebow or if Tim will be manning the bench, but one thing is for sure. With the salary of $1.942 million in 2012, $2.266 million in 2013, and $2.590 million in 2014… Tebow sure won’t be suffering.
