08:03 AM ET 01.31 | How sold on Tim Tebow is Denver? After the Broncos completed their 2011 season, they did two things at quarterback: They named [Tebow] the starter heading into training camp this summer, and they posted a "help wanted" sign to fill the depth chart behind Tebow. "We will be in the market to find more quarterbacks," said John Elway, the Broncos' executive vice president of football operations. "That's our approach with Tim being our starter as we go to training camp, that we'll look at free agency and the draft." The Senior Bowl's practices and North-South game in Mobile last week offered a great opportunity for NFL teams to evaluate draft-eligible quarterbacks not named Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.

Hmm.....Trying to find a QB to step in for Tebow when he's benched and thrown out of Denver next year? I can dig it.......

This jibes with what Elway has already said: Tebow goes into camp as the starter but will have to compete for the job. It's nice to get a refresher, though. Can't let a day or two slip by without a Tebow-related story.

John Elway is taking a real chance here: he could be charged with identity theft of Jon Gruden.

Gruden would've kept Orton around and let that situation continue to fester. No way he could bring himself to part with a QB.

I'm sick of this story, too.

What's Brady Quinn's NFL value?

Come on Elway, don't keep us in suspense, HOW MANY Quarterbacks? 2, 3, 12?

A cup of weak coffee and a poached egg. Approximately.

John keeps looking for himself, all he has to do, is Look in the Mirror!!! He should also keep in mind how he struggled as a young Quarterback! Go Blue!!!

Tebow will not be the starting QB for the entire year in 2012.

January 31, 2012  08:51 AM ET

Wanting to have a viable exit strategy doesn't make him a QB hoarder (as in a Gruden). I think Elway just realizes the chances for success in fixing his ridiculously long, sidearm delivery are slim. You'd kill to have Tebow's desire and heart with the physical skill of a Rodgers but alas here we sit... I suspect the revolving door at QB will spin a few more years at Mile High.

Tebow should be worried but shouldn't be surprised.

January 31, 2012  09:00 AM ET

This season clearly showed teams they need to have a quality backup or two. Ask the Bears how important that is.

January 31, 2012  09:02 AM ET

Move Tebow to Tight End, get a QB that is good at passing.

I don't think he'll make it to the first game. By then Denver will have a real QB.

Sub-Prime. Toxic Assets. Quarterback Credit Default Swaps.
