4th round pick and $5 million to the broncos (current hold up) for a back up qb who runs gimmick plays :lmao:


They didn't ask for the extra money... it's just how his contract is written, if traded, the Broncos get 5 million in return.

It depends on how you look at it- the money is part of the signing bonus, jets feel the broncos are responsible for that

I think they should be as well. It's part of his contract. It's the Jets fault for not reading the contract closely enough.

Fortunately for them, they found it in time - draft picks, 5 million in cash, and 2+ million in salary for a backup is absurd

They're acquiring Tebow in case they run into the steelers in the playoffs.   :poke:

Can someone explain to me what this "bounty program" was all about, why it was bad, and why the NFL apparently hated it so much?  This punishment seems crazy.

NFL Network's Warren Sapp tweet says it was Jeremy Shockey

Seriously?  Wow, did he blab about it while doing coke at Rehab again?  Seems like a really bad idea to snitch on your team like that.

Something like you got so much money for things like turnovers and INTs (which I see no problem with), a bigger chunk of change for causing and injury, and the most money for a hit hard enough that the player has to be carted off the field.  The money wasn't even that much (I think like $1,000 for getting a player injured and carted off the field) and it was pretty dirty IMO.

Hard hits?  Fine.  Specifically seeking to cause an injury?  Dirty.  Just like in baseball, drilling a batter in retaliation is fine by me, trying to throw at a batter's head isn't really kosher (unless it's Utley :mg: )

He was pissed they cut him- in the nfl where a large number of ex employees are disgruntled, I'm surprised this stuff doesn't come out more often

LMAO at ESPN and their coverage of the Saints scandal. ESPN should never take the moral high ground on anything. Merrell Hoge needs to just quit. That guy is annoying as crap.

He wasn't on the team anymore. But if this is proven he may have a tough time sticking around much longer.

The reason the NFL hates it so much and took such drastic measure is because it became public. This kind of crap has been going on for decades in most locker rooms (if not all). Buddy Ryan was known to have bounties on specific players (who can forget the image of Luis Zendejas stumbling off the field, to the wrong sideline, after taking a knee to the head and he actually got flagged on the play for going low on a player on special teams :rofl:) and Gregg Williams, a disciple of Buddy Ryan, was known to have bounties in all his stops including Buffalo and Washington.

Now it's up to Tebow.  He can choose who he wants to play for between the Jets and the Jaguars. :shock:

He'll get every chance in the world to succeed in J-Ville. In New York, he'll just be a Wildcat gimmick.

Has to be the Jags, they'll worship him down there even if he sucks. Not sure what they would do with Blaine Gabbert though.

Actually, in New York, within six months he'd be that Kony 2012 director on a naked rampage somewhere in lower Manhattan.
