It's finally happening: Peyton Manning is planning to sign a contract with the Denver Broncos, according to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

That means the Broncos no longer need Tim Tebow, but plenty of teams do.

Whether it's going home to Florida or trying to become Cleveland's sports savior, there are plenty of options for Tebow.

So, let's take a look at three teams that should be on the phone with the Broncos trying to acquire the popular quarterback.


Jacksonville Jaguars

This one is the biggest no-brainer on the list.

Tebow went to the University of Florida, and the Jaguars need a quarterback.

They also need someone who will sell tickets, and Tebow would do exactly that.

This trade makes so much sense that it's almost a given that Jacksonville will do something to mess it up.

But, if they can actually pull it off, they might just experience a return to relevancy.


Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins honored Tebow and his Florida national championship team last season when he was an opponent, so you know they have to be interested.

And, after missing out on Manning and Matt Flynn, they need to make some sort of a splash this offseason.

If they trade for Tebow, the fans will probably forgive them for the lack of big-name free-agent signings.

But, if they do get Tebow, they'll likely have to try to sign a less injury-prone running back to help out Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas.


Cleveland Browns

If the Browns can pull off a trade for Tebow, it might just help convince Cleveland fans that God doesn't hate them.

With a Tebow trade, they'd definitely need to sign a running back or two, especially after losing Peyton Hillis to the Kansas City Chiefs.

And, they have one of the worst groups of wide receivers in the NFL, so an upgrade in that department would be necessary as well.

Getting Tebow wouldn't save this team, but it would be a great first step in returning to relevancy.
