BRONCOS AGREE TO TRADE QUARTERBACK TIM TEBOW TO NEW YORK JETS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Wednesday agreed to trade quarterback Tim Tebow and a seventh-round choice in the 2012 NFL Draft to the New York Jets for selections in the fourth and sixth rounds of this year’s draft.

Tebow played 23 games (14 starts) for the Broncos in two seasons and completed 167-of-353 passes (47.3%) for 2,838 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions (75.1 rtg.). He added 165 rushes for 887 yards (5.4 avg.) with 12 touchdowns on the ground. In two playoff games, Tebow completed 19-of-47 passes (40.4%) for 452 yards with two touchdowns (90.0 rtg.) in addition to rushing 15 times for 63 yards (4.2 avg.) and one score.

In his second NFL season in 2011, Tebow took over as Denver’s starting quarterback after Week 5 and led the Broncos to a 7-4 record down the stretch to capture their first AFC West Division title since 2005. He threw for a career-high 316 yards with two touchdowns in Denver’s 29-23 overtime win against Pittsburgh in its AFC Wild Card Game.

Tebow, who was selected by Denver in the first round (25th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from the University of Florida, executed six fourth-quarter comebacks in 14 career starts with the Broncos, including five in 2011 to tie Eli Manning and Alex Smith for the NFL lead. He also is tied with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for the third-most games (7) with at least one passing and one rushing touchdown since 2010.

The Broncos currently own seven picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.
