With multiple sources reporting that former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning will sign with the Denver Broncos, one main question arose: what's going to happen with Tim Tebow?

One current NFL player, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, was thinking the same thing, and went to Twitter to express his thoughts, tweeting "Peyton to Denver?? What does that mean for Tebow?"

Instead of getting normal responses from fans, some ignorant people decided to suggest that the Ravens should trade Smith for Tebow. In fact, one guy told Smith that he was "garbage."

The tweet also led to fans telling Smith that the Ravens should trade the team's current quarterback Joe Flacco for Tebow, as some uneducated fans actually believe Tebow is a better option.

Smith promptly tweeted "I will argue with anyone about our QB...I'd bet more than my normal $5 that he gets a ring soon enough."

So there's that.

Smith also tweeted back to specific people that bashed him, and if you'd like to read any of those tweets, you can go to Smith's Twitter here: https://twitter.com/#!/TorreySmithWR.

And just a suggestion to anyone that bashed Smith or Flacco on Twitter, please get a life. To tell a professional athlete who excelled in his rookie year that he is "garbage" is just unacceptable. Don't be jealous that someone plays in front of 70,000 fans every Sunday while you sit home watching the game.
