The New York Jets have acquired quarterback Tim Tebow and 2012 7th-round pick from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 4th and 6th-round draft pick in 2012. Tebow is expected to back up starter Mark Sanchez, while also being utilized in different packages.
The Jets jumped on the opportunity to grab a little buzz back from the world champion Giants by acquiring one of the most polarizing athletes in modern-day sports. The move may help the Jets on the field in allowing them to create some new packages in a run heavy offense, but ultimately the move was made with marketing on the mind.
The Jets must have been impressed with what they saw on the final drive back on November 17th.
