04:19 PM ET 05.02 | Less than 18 months ago, Tim Tebow was a playoff-winning quarterback for the Denver Broncos. As of Thursday, he does not appear to be any kind of quarterback for any team, and the Miami Dolphins appear to be the next in line to say "no thanks" to signing Tebow. Which team will be next on the "no thanks, Tebow" free agent tour?

So, I guess we're going to get a thread for every team not interested in the guy? Jets, Jags, Chargers and Phins down... 28 teams/threads to go.

The Colonel Harland Sanders who originally made Kentucky Fried Chicken was turned down 156 times by banks when he asked for a loan to get his business going. Number 157 said yes and the rest is history.

If Tebow wants to be an NFL football player bad enough, he'll find a way to get on a team. He might not want it bad enough. As in, he won't play a different position.

Kentucky Fried Tebow, coming to a take out stadium near you! Football ain't chicken!

No doubt. But, if he really wants to play in the NFL he's going to have to alter his goals. His skills at QB aren't ever going to be good enough to be an NFL quarterback.

Totally agree. I think Timmy's a decent kid with good values but beneath the virginal-aw-gee-shucks veneer lies a guy who still feesl entitled to a career as a QB and one who still believes the old hype. He's young and, after all, pride goeth before the fall.

Timmy could probably tell you which biblical verse that it.

He wouldn't be a bad fit in Washington. He's nowhere near as accurate as RGIII but with Denver he had the same kind of winning attitude.

Dolphins not interested in Tim Tebow, according to report.... as long as the Dolphins don't have to face Tebow IMO.

The more of this we see, the more it makes Elway appear a genius and the Jets the bottom rung of the NFL ladder.

Someone will eventually convince him that he is a football player, but not a QB, and will sign him as a special teams talent/part time H-back or TE. He can be useful, just not as a QB.

I'm not a Tebow fan and he's unorthodox, but he did take the Broncos deeper in the playoffs then Peyton Manning did last year....Kid was doing something right.....

I believe it was a case of Champ Bailey doing less wrong.

He got them there......somewhat......Don't get me wrong, I don't want him as my QB but he was the winning QB in the wildcard game 2 years ago over Pitt.....Can't take that away from him......

The new logo looks like crap

What a load of crap. All that the general sporting public knows since Denver is media generated. How many plays has Tebow been in since Denver? Very few. The media killed Tebow and continues to denigrate him because evidently there are page hits and money to be made by tearing down good people. I am not a big Tebow fan but this guy has been slaughtered by a biased press and their readers are mostly unthinking toadies that just parrot the bs they read and hear on television.

And Elway a genius? Get a clue. Read up on faxgate with Elvis Dumerville and then give that genius bs a rest.

Tebow's is at a severe disadvantage due to the media circus that follows him anywhere he goes. IMHO few teams are going to be willing to put up with that bs unless the player is a proven superstar. Jets were an exception - they love the spotlight and evidently think any pub is good pub.
