Tim Tebow went from playoff hero in Denver to trade bait in just a matter of months, as reportedly the Jacksonville Jaguars are interested in acquiring the unorthodox quarterback via trade.

The Yahoo Sports report says that if Peyton Manning chooses Denver as his next team, then Tebow will be placed on the trade block, where the Jaguars have already expressed interest.

Manning visited Denver on Friday and is in Arizona on Sunday, speaking with coaches and players, one of whom was reportedly Larry Fitzgerald.

However, this totally makes sense to those well-informed of Denver's position on Tebow over the past couple years.

John Elway has always thought that Tebow was nothing more than a part-time fix under center.  The main goal of that football team was for a conventional-style quarterback to come in and take over the franchise, just as Elway did when he was drafted out of Stanford University.

With Manning a potential solution at quarterback, the Broncos have found a way to rid themselves of Tebowmania once and for all.

Jacksonville would love Tebow, as if the Florida connection would not be enough.

Tebow has had the best moments of his football career in Florida, so adding him to bulk up their fanbase—as well as compete for the quarterback job—would be ideal.

But that is exactly what it is: a ploy to drive revenue to their football team, which Tebow would do immediately and with tremendous affect.  

Also, Tebow would be able to compete in a state he knows loves him and will be behind him. He would be included in the quarterback competition with Blane Gabbert and Luke McCown, maybe even becoming the front-runner to land the job on starting day.

Tebow would rid himself of a Denver franchise that does not particularly believe in him, and that will only motivate him to work harder and improve that Jacksonville franchise.

It's only fitting that Florida one day becomes his home again.
