Tebow Traded To The New York Jets For Two Late Draft Picks

After warming up in Denver, the Tim Tebow show is headed to Broadway after the New York Jets announced Wednesday that they have agreed to in principle on a trade for the quarterback.

Tebow and the Denver Bronco's seventh-round draft pick will reportedly be headed to the Jets in exchange for a fourth and a sixth-round pick.

The news of the trade comes a day after the Broncos officially signed four-time MVP Peyton Manning, seemingly making Tebow expendable.

With the move, Tebow will join Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, who recently received a three-year contract extension.

Initial reports suggest that the Jets are interested in using Tebow in their wildcat package, a favorite of new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.

The Manning signing in Denver represented an improbable turn of events for Tebow, whose distinctive style of quarterbacking sparked the Broncos to a surprising 8-8 record -- good enough to win the AFC West.

Tebow-mania hit a fever pitch in the first round of the AFC playoffs, as the former University of Florida standout beat the defending conference champion Pittsburgh Steelers with a long pass in overtime.
