As the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning are finalizing the terms on a likely five-year, $95 million contract, it is all but certain that the franchise will look to trade Tim Tebow

We all know what Tebow did a year ago with the Broncos as he was thrown in as the starting quarterback when the team was 1-4. He went onto win six games in a row and ultimately led Denver to an AFC West divisional title as well as a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round. 

Tebow may not have posted the greatest stats, but he was a winner—and you cannot take that away from him.

With that being said, let's take a look at five possible trading destinations for Tebow. 


Jacksonville Jaguars

This one almost makes too much sense as Tebow is from the Jacksonville area and he would certainly spike interest in that dying franchise. 

However, there are just two problems: the Jaguars have Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne as the top two quarterbacks on their roster. 

But let me ask you this: Would Tebow be an upgrade over those two quarterbacks? I certainly think so. 


New England Patriots

You may feel like this possible destination is a little far-fetched, but I don't think so.

Tebow wouldn't just be used as a backup quarterback behind Tom Brady with the Patriots; he'd be used as a football player.

Tebow is incredibly talented and could be used in short-yardage situations as a running back, a tight end or a slot receiver. 

The possibilities are endless with Bill Belichick and Tebow. 


Philadelphia Eagles

If you're the Philadelphia Eagles, then you may not have a ton of confidence in Michael Vick staying healthy for an entire season. 

With that being said, Vince Young failed miserably as the team's backup behind Vick, and Tebow would be a significant upgrade for that specific role. 

I'd also like to add that Tebow could also be used in specifically-designed packages with the Eagles, even when Vick is healthy. 


Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins may have just signed David Garrard, but Tebow would be a really nice fit with the franchise.

Why? Because he'd increase ticket sales for the Dolphins as well as being a reliable backup or even a starter for the team.


Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs could be a team that would develop interest in Tebow as they have some question marks at the quarterback position. 

If the Chiefs plan to hold a quarterback competition in training camp this summer then might as well bring in a proven winner in Tebow.
