In one fell swoop, Peyton Manning turned the world of professional football upside down.

The 14-year pro has reportedly packed his bags for the Rocky Mountains, electing to join the Denver Broncos and subsequently writing a new chapter in the tumultuous story of Tebowmania, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.

With Manning's arrival, quarterback Tim Tebow has all but taken his last snap in blue and orange. Mortensen and Schefter are reporting that the controversial signal-caller will be traded as soon as the signing is official.

Tebow is a natural fit in Jacksonville for innumerable reasons. He grew up in the area, played high school football in northern Florida and rose to national prominence as a member of the Florida Gators.

But Tebow's unconventional playing style, paired with his polarity among the Jaguars faithful and general manager Gene Smith's investment in first-round draftee Blaine Gabbert, may certainly complicate things.

Would Tebow triumph in teal? Plenty of evidence points to a successful hometown return.
