NFL Rumors: Tim Tebow back with Denver Broncos?

Tim Tebow as savior for the Denver Broncos? NFL rumors in free agency has linked the quarterback back to Mile High City with the Broncos losing their top two quarterbacks earlier in the offseason.

The Broncos lost starting quarterback Peyton Manning to retirement and his back up, Brock Osweiler to free agency, signing with the rivals Houston Texans in the early days of the signing period in the offseason.

The quarterback developments could lead the Broncos considering Tebow, who played for Denver in the 2011 and 2012 seasons. In two seasons in Denver, Tebow played a total of 23 regular season games and two playoff games.

In his second season with the Broncos, Tebow passed for 1,729 yards on 126 of 271 completions with 12 touchdowns, 6 interceptions and 7 fumbles. He also had 660 rushing yards on 122 carries with six rushing touchdowns. Tebow led the Broncos to a playoff win in 2011 over the Pittsburgh Steelers, 29-23 in overtime in the AFC Wildcard Playoff but the team lost to the New England Patriots in the next round.

The Broncos did not stick with Tebow however and he moved to the New York Jets in 2012. He played in just 12 games but was not the primary quarterback for the Jets.

The Broncos selected Tebow as the 25th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft after a successful college career with the Florida Gators. He was the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner but his game never translated to the pros.

    I’ll believe it when I see it. John Elway couldn’t stand Tebow’s presence even though the team was winning games, so why would he bring him back. Tebow was improved last preseason and I’d love to see him back in the NFL, but I doubt it’s going to happen. Even with all his obvious flaws as a pro-style qb, I’d still take Tim over half the other backup qb’s in the league and a few starters

    Mark Sanchez sucks, he’s is a useless quarterback
