04:33 PM ET 04.14 | If the Jets want to save some money, they could look to trade Tim Tebow. They might be able to save over $1.5 million by dealing the folk hero/quarterback, great news for a team that's well over the salary cap. When the Jets traded for Tebow, they took on a commitment to pay the Broncos $1.53. Tebow's rookie contract had unique provisions that called for the Broncos to pay his 2013 salary in advance, and they did, but now the Jets hypothetically owe the Broncos for that previously paid salary. if the Jets simply cut Tebow, they'd save the $1.03 million Tebow is owed for the upcoming season, but they'd still be on the hook for that $1.53 million. However, if they trade him, they could ask their trade partner to pay the Broncos. With the Tebow experiment failed and a new GM in charge, the Jets will likely be looking to dump the backup quarterback. But it will be interesting to see if they can get another team to bite or whether they'll be saddled with even more unnecessary financial commitments.

'Kato' Kaelin, the Kardashian sisters, Paris Hilton, Anna Kournikova, Tim Tebow. Very little success, tons of press.

Folk hero/quarterback........I think I may puke. Has anyone thought of drug testing the writers at the Denver Post?

April 14, 2013  08:15 PM ET

Hasn't it become clear by now that no team is going to trade for Tebow?

April 14, 2013  08:48 PM ET

$1.5 million is chump change. I could save WAY more than that by dealing my wife.

What team is dumb enough to deal for Tebow when he could be had for pennies on the dollar as a Free Agent after he's cut?

What NFL team would want him? Go North young man, the CFL is calling.

I pray too. I pray this guy just goes away. He almost wrecked Denver and the Jets. The guy has this rabid following who unfortunately know nothing about football.
