BOSTON (CBS) — The Peyton Manning decision has been made, with the future Hall of Famer choosing Denver as his next football home.
But Manning might not be the only quarterback on the move, according to one rumor.
ESPN’s John Clayton said on ESPN Radio over the weekend that if Manning ends up in Denver, the team will look to trade Tim Tebow. As relayed by ESPN’s Louise Cornetta, the Broncos would be trading Tebow to the New England Patriots.
It seems a bit far-fetched, to be sure, as the Patriots have a quarterback named Tom Brady who takes all the snaps in New England, and the Broncos could likely get a decent return from a team looking for a starter. However, Clayton reported that rumor from Denver, and with piece No. 1 falling into place with Manning on Monday, we’ll all now watch for piece No. 2.
