Now that it's become evident that Tim Tebow's tenure with the New York Jets won't likely last beyond the 2012 season, we started thinking about where he could possibly end up in 2013.
We came up with several longshot possibilities on Wednesday, but depending on how important it is for him to continue playing quarterback and getting an opportunity to start, it's possible that most NFL teams just won't want to take the chance on bringing the scrutiny of theTebow experience into their locker room.
As positive of a guy as Tebow is, each team is likely to have at least one reason why they'd turn down the chance to sign or trade for him. Here they all are.
NORTHERN EXPOSURE: Could Tebow end up in the CFL?
New York Giants: They've seen the circus up close and personal -- president John Mara even ridiculed the Jets for it -- and there's no way they'd bring it to East Rutherford.
Washington Redskins: Aside from RGIII's action-figure collection, there can only be one superhero in that locker room.
Dallas Cowboys: If Jerry Jones gives Tebow a job, it'll be as Dez Bryant's escort.
Philadelphia Eagles: They've already tried a left-handed quarterback who can't stay in the pocket.
Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers would welcome the distraction of Tebow about as well as another visit from a "60 Minutes" production crew.
Chicago Bears: "Hi, Mr. Cutler, I'm Tim Tebow." "Doooonnnnnnnn'tttt Carrrrrrrrrrrre"
Minnesota Vikings: They already have one quarterback from a Florida college whose main job consists of handing the ball off to Adrian Peterson.
WEEK 16 Picks: Will the 49ers claim the NFC West?
Detroit Lions: The Lions have the best receiver in football in Calvin Johnson. You don't fill up a Ferrari with 87 gas, even for short trips to the store.
Atlanta Falcons: They're in the Bible belt, but any backup quarterback here in 2013 had better be able to get the ball to their weapons – Tony Gonzalez (if he doesn't retire), Roddy White and Julio Jones. And Tebow can't.
New Orleans Saints: It would be amazing to anoint "Saint Tebow," but even Sean Payton couldn't devise an offense that would work for him.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: "Excuse me, Coach Schiano, but do you think diving at a guy's knees on the last play of the game is the Christian thing to do?"
Carolina Panthers: Fragile Cam Newton can't deal with losing, how do you think he'd do as the second-most popular QB in camp?
San Francisco 49ers: Colin Kaepernick = Tim Tebow with an accurate arm.
Seattle Seahawks: Pete Carroll went out of his way to call Tebow "a distraction" for the Jets this season.
St. Louis Rams: If offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer (who held the same role with the Jets prior to this season) is a fan of schadenfreude, he probably enjoyed the Tebow experiment in New York. That doesn't mean he wants to be designing plays for the guy.
Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals badly need a starting quarterback and will likely target a veteran like Alex Smith or a potential franchise player through the draft. Neither needs the carnival of the world's most famous backup.
MAN UP: Ex-Jet questions Sanchez's priorities
New England Patriots: Tom Brady doesn't like leaving the field with his team up 30 in the fourth quarter. He's going to want to jog off so Tebow can run a draw play every few series?
New York Jets: Been there. done that.
Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins primarily run a West Coast offense. Tim Tebow is not exactly the best fit for a West Coast offense.
Buffalo Bills: Buffalo already has Brad Smith in the fold for the types of unconventional Wildcat playcalling that Tebow could be useful for.
Baltimore Ravens: Because Tim Tebow is also not an elite quarterback.
Cincinnati Bengals: While preparing for the Jets in preseason, the Bengals used rookie receiver Mohammed Sanu to mimic Tebow. Sanu told reporters afterward he could throw better than the former Heisman winner. "I've seen him throw," Sanu said. The receiver might be right. His 73 yards passing on the year are nearly twice as many as Tebow has.
Pittsburgh Steelers: And get rid of 75-year-old Charlie Batch to make room? Nonsense.
Cleveland Browns: The Browns have been trying to find a good passer since Bernie Kosar left. They'll keep looking.
Houston Texans: The only stadium Tebow will be headlining in Houston is likely to be Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church, which now operates from the former COMPAQ Center, the home of the Rockets until 2003.
Indianapolis Colts: Indy isn't going to mess with its amazing Luck for years to come.
Tennessee Titans: With former All-Pro guard Mike Munchak at the helm, the Titans would be the perfect stop for Tebow if he wanted the coach to teach him how to be a full-time blocker.
Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars were on the hometown hero's short list last season but apparently owner Shad Khan was the only one in the front office sold on bringing Tebow in. As Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder have often proved, it's always a good idea to let the owner make football decisions.
Denver Broncos: Dude, she had fun with you but dumped you for like, a way, older college guy with his own Jeep Wrangler. Her parents thought you were such a nice boy though.
San Diego Chargers: A.J. Smith is likely gone as the Chargers GM after the season. If you're his replacement, why would you want to make this kind of a splash in your first month or two on the job?
Oakland Raiders: It would be hard to focus on playing quarterback when you've got an entire "nation" of miscreants to try and counsel before every home game.
Kansas City Chiefs: Brady Quinn: "Come on???? This guy again???"

This is absolutely asinine. As awful of a QB as I may think Tebow is, even I wouldn't make such a ridiculous argument. The Jets will likely be able to move him in a trade, even if not getting much in return, but if they actually end up cutting him, there will be even more teams interested in getting him knowing they wouldn't have to give anything up or get stuck with his current contract. There's still probably some coaches out there who think themselves genius enough to make Tebow capable of playing QB in the NFL and even if not, I'm sure plenty of teams who have stable starting QB situations wouldn't mind him as a backup. That's not to mention the really awful teams out there who would probably just be happy to have the exposure and have nothing to lose when it comes to their QB situation (Jags, Cards, Chiefs).

I will be surprised if he brings anything back in trade. You had two teams bid for him after an amazingly lucky season where he was statistically an awful QB. How many teams are going to want him now that we have seen his performance match his statistics? I think he will find a job, but after he is released.

How has his performance matched his statistics? Not saying I disagree with you about most of this, but I don't understand that part.

Tebow is much better suited running from a passing formation. On that big spread out field, he'd be dangerous. If teams refused to respect the pass, he can beat them deep. I really think he'd do very well there.

His stats indicate he sucks, but he won games with the Broncos. With the Jets, there has been no magic. Sucky stats and sucky results means no interest.

Why?

He was never a good passer...even in college.

He was never quick...and is know heavier.

And a team with a horrible QB situation went with the 3rd string instead of going with Tebow.

Like with Sanchez, why would anyone wnat to trade for him? Wait it out and he will be free.

And as far as his value to other teams as a QB, this is not a player for whatever reason has not gotten his $hit together. Again, he was not considered a good QB prospect coming out of college. He has only re-enforced that with his 14 starts over two years. In an age where rookies are coming in ready to play, why would a team wnat waste practice tim eon him in the hopes he might become a decent passer someday when he has not done anything in 3 years?

He's a QB with a unique skillset that has been highly touted by at least some sources. You and I may not agree with that analysis, but all it takes is one coach out there who thinks he can make something of Tebow. You really think anyone is going to give a sh*t what the Jets did with him in terms of their evaluation? Like I said, it could be minimal, but considering that the Jets were one of two teams willing to offer up what they did for Tebow last year, you really think some team won't be willing to toss a 6th rounder out there for him? There are QBs out there who have had much larger sample sizes of their sucking who have managed to garner something in a trade. Of course it's possible a team could just wait it out, but declaring there will be absolutely no interest there seems a tad over the top. Again, this is still the QB position we're talking about and in the NFL, you have to be Jamarcus Russell bad to not have at least one team out there interested in giving you a shot. Matt Leinart is still in the league for crying out loud.

You're actually judging his season with the Jets? Which of his two pass attempts didn't you like?

And as for results, I firmly believe that if he was given a shot at QB, we'd still be in playoff contention. Of course you'll read this and think I'm calling him Joe Montanamanningbrady, but I'm not.

You just answered your own question. Just because the Jetswere willing to trade for him, does not meet anyone else is going to do it. Using Jax as an example is also bad because he is more of a gimmick for them to try and sell a game out.

No one sees him as a QB. He cannot pass. They see him as a gimmick offense.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree. I saw nothing in the times he was on the field to indicate we were holding back some secret weapon. He looks slow when he runs the ball and his throwing motion looks as long and deliberate as it ever has.

Of course it has, and yes, he hasn't run very well, it's tough to look fast when you're plodding straight ahead on some wildcat play. But do you really think he'd be worse than Sanchez? Ah, none of this matters anyway. I'll be glad when all of this is over.

You're an idiot... He still holds 4 NCAA Div 1 records with his arm..

His last BCS game he was 31/35 with almost 500 yds in the air against a div 1 conference winner, Cinn Bearcats..
He has 14 SEC passing records unbroken..

So?

If he was a hot QB draft prospect, he would not have gone at the end of the first round and be considered a reach when he was drafted.

There are a thousand Timmy Changs and Casey Keenums that have NCAA records that never made it in the NFL. Why? There college talent does not translate to the NFL.
