After signing the highest-profile free agent in the history of the NFL, Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos decided to ship Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. It was reported that Peyton Manning would only agree to a 5-year deal in the range of $90 million, which meant that the Broncos would no longer be able to accommodate the marvellous Tim Tebow. Although Tim Tebow was a huge hit in the 2011 season, the Broncos only received a fourth and sixth round draft pick in return for him.
Another huge free agent signing came from the Miami Dolphins this past week when they signed former 49ers QB, Alex Smith, to a 3-year deal that will pay him $8 million per season, and guarantees him $16.8 million. Moreover, Mark Sanchez agreed on a contract extension with the New York Jets worth $40.5 million with $20.5 million guaranteed, earlier this month. All I have left to say is that Mark Sanchez needs to play 110% if he doesn’t want to see his starting QB role handed over to Tim Tebow; especially since he failed to make it to the post-season last year.
