With Peyton Manning signed, sealed and delivered to Denver, it’s almost certainly just a matter of time before the Broncos ship out QB Tim Tebow.
And with Peyton Watch over, Tebow Watch has officially begun. NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports that the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars are among the teams interested in the polarizing lefty, and that five clubs have already placed a call to the Broncos inquiring about the 2010 first-round pick.
The Jags have been a no-brainer all along, given they play in Tebow’s hometown and don’t have a proven quarterback on their roster, though GM Gene Smith made an obvious investment to draft Blaine Gabbert 10th overall in 2011 and just signed four-year veteran Chad Henne. But unlike Tebow, neither of them will fill the frequently available seats at EverBank Field, nor have they ever led a team to the NFL postseason … though Gabbert has just a year under his belt and didn’t seem to be playing with a full deck of helping hands as a rookie.
