Right before Tim Tebow was finally traded to the Jets, reports stated that the Denver Broncos had given him a choice regarding where he would be traded.Jacksonville Jaguars or New York Jets?
Well according to Tebow, that’s not exactly the way things went down.
“I didn’t have any (say).The Broncos had all that power”
That sentiment is contrary to what Tebow’s old boss, Broncos executive VP John Elway said Thursday.
“There was more from Jacksonville, but I think that we looked at it and it was close enough, and we were in contact with Tim throughout the day, and talked to him. He knew what was going on the whole time. The reports that he was not involved are not accurate.”
It doesn’t really matter who’s telling the truth.
Elway has to keep crazy Colorado Tebowites happy. While Tebow knows that the way his NFL career is going he may someday end up in a Jaguars uniform.
As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk points out, “Why spoil an eventual homecoming by alienating the hometown crowd now?”
It wouldn’t be the first time a team exec and star quarterback disagreed this offseason.
