Tim Tebow is once again polarizing the nation. While factions of NFL fans rejoice, another part of the population is sickened.

The deal that could potentially become one of the most talked about trades has been put on hold.

According to Adam Schefter via Twitter, the New York Jets and Denver Broncos are hung up in details of the trade.

"Denver and Jets have encountered hangup in language in Tim Tebow's contract that could nullify trade."

Schefter went on to tweet, "Tim Tebow has $5 million worth of recapture language, meaning Jets would have to pay back money to Denver. Jets might be unwilling. Complex."

The Jets essentially will owe Denver $5 million if the trade goes through. The Jets are undoubtedly trying to get the Broncos to eat the $5 million but as for now the money has become a speed bump in this trade.

If the trade falls through, it looks as though the St. Louis Rams might be the next suitor for Tebow.
