08:00 AM ET 05.31 | Tim Tebow may not be in Denver, but he found a way to work out with his teammates. Tebow has organized his own team workouts with fellow Denver receivers in Jacksonville, according to a league source. Last week, Tebow flew Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, Jabar Gaffney and Britt Davis to Jacksonville, put them up in a nearby hotel, and then led a week of workouts in his hometown, the source said. Each of the Broncos receivers had hoped to come, the source said, but Eric Decker had another commitment, and Demaryius Thomas (torn Achilles) and Eddie Royal (strained hamstring) were unable to practice at this time due to lingering injuries.

The headline should say Tebow participates in workouts.

Just because the staff moved this thread from 5th to 1st doesn't mean it's any more interesting.

Can't we get some wedding-night pictures of Romo's new wife instead?

I honestly believe they use that picture of Tebow just to annoy us

Just goes to show they think they can post any old junk up in these threads, and we'll come back anyway.

And that would make it just as newsworthy.

Which isn't saying much.

I've always been partial to this photo of Tim.

Orton has been very vocal about not attending team workouts according to the Denver Post and a past article here on SI. He actually has refused in the past to attend other team run workouts. He has said he can do all his training on his own.

Tebow on the other hand is showing something I think Orton has lacked in the past 2 years in Denver: Leadership. You saw it in the games Tebow played in Denver at the end of the year. You do not see that with Orton. Sure Orton tosses a lot of high numbers, but his leadership and failure in the red zone is a concern.

Good for Tebow! Just showing the leadership and dedication that will make him a success in the NFL!

May 31, 2011  11:57 AM ET

I like Tebow, and his winner mentality and his leadership and good guy act. I hope he will get chance to start for season or two and show what he can or can not do, but...

He should come to Denver and work out there rally the guys to come as well like nothing changed. Cba will get done and he needs as much reps as he can get if he wants to shine. This bs with throwing to 2 guys at his backyard isnt even good try.

Do the receivers live in Denver in the off-season? My guess is, they're scattered all over the country, so there's no difference where you hold the workouts. If they work out in Denver, they're going to have idiot Denver media all over them. Who needs that? We know no one in Jacksonville cares about football, right?
