Tim Tebow: Which Team Could He Play For in 2012?

Tim Tebow may be headed out of Denver, as ESPN reports, but as a fan—and we all should be of a guy this good—I am curious as to just which team he could head to where he could find a home.

Following are some of my thoughts on who Tebow could land with and make them better, now and for the future.

But first let's eliminate a few where we know he won't be headed to.

San Francisco 49ers: After having a Hall of Fame quarterback in Steve Young, they have no real taste for a running, scrambling quarterback. They will stick with a draft pick, Alex Smith or a has-been on the rounds looking to next year's draft.

Seattle Seahawks: They signed Flynn—story over.

St. Louis Rams: They don't need a quarterback; they need an offensive line and help for a good quarterback.

Oakland Raiders: Bad fit. They have signed Carson Palmer and are happy, and they should be.

Indianapolis Colts: No, they have the luck of drafting Luck. Though fans of Manning don't wish Andrew Luck ill luck, they wouldn't mind if the Colts suffer for a few years without Peyton.

Atlanta Falcons: They have Matt Ryan and are riding a wave. Only a little better—a little—and they can compete. OK, a lot better, but there is the draft this year, right?

Chicago has Jay Cutler and a real chance to break out of mediocrity, assuming the Bears have a good draft, this year and next.

And of course we can rule out New England, Baltimore, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Giants, Dallas, Houston, Arizona, New Orleans, San Diego and Detroit.

The Jets have Sanchez, for now, and the delusion they will beat New England sometime this decade for the AFC East.

Kansas City has Matt Cassel, and Jacksonville and Miami have new coaches that won't risk a Tebowing moment, aka praying for a miracle.

So who does that leave us? Minnesota, Tampa Bay, Tennessee. Let's look at what Tebow could bring to each of those teams.
