Numerous sources confirmed at 9PM on Wednesday, March 21, that Tim Tebow is officially headed to the New York Jets. Gang Green also received a seventh round draft pick, while Denver endured a fourth and sixth round selection.

Sources and reports confirmed earlier that Tebow had officially been traded to New York, but a later bulletin announced that the Jets front office hadn’t exactly read all of the fine print.

Tebow’s contract apparently stated that any suitor who obtained him would have to pay Denver $5 million. And while New York remained at a standstill over this issue, sources then began reporting that Tebow would most likely return to Denver, and then be pursued by Jacksonville and St. Louis.

However, the whirlwind officially ended a few hours later when the Broncos and Jets agreed to split the coast, and execute the deal.

Tebow started 13 of 18 games last season, which included two postseason contests against New England and Pittsburgh, but will most likely backup Mark Sanchez, who recently signed a three-year extension.
