Josh McDaniels, the young, brash, Bill Belichick wannabe, was fired by the Denver Broncos, and Eric Studesville has been named to replace him in the interim.

With McDaniels' firing and the extremely poor season the Broncos have suffered this season, a certain 2010 first-round draft pick may be a tad concerned about his immediate future.

When the Broncos moved up to grab Tim Tebow late in the first round after selecting wide receiver Demaryius Thomas with the 22nd overall pick, many questioned what McDaniels was thinking.

To say Tebow was a wild card going into the draft was one thing, but to trade up to get him in the first round was an entirely different thing.

Tebow has seen limited action in his rookie season. To date, he has 12 rushes for 28 yards and two touchdowns, and he has thrown one three-yard touchdown pass. That's not a whole lot of production considering what the Broncos gave up to get him.

Perhaps his preseason haircut is the biggest story so far in his NFL career.

It is unknown if Studesville will become the permanent head coach or if owner Pat Bowlen will hire someone else. Nevertheless, the person who takes the reins undoubtedly will question Tebow's future in Denver.

What does this all mean? 

What if Denver decides that the Tebow experiment is over and gives him his outright release? What would Tebow do? Would he attempt to sign on with another NFL team? Would he venture north of the border and play in the CFL? Or would he call it quits, take the guaranteed money and find something else to do?

If he decided to sign on with another NFL team, then would the Jacksonville Jaguars consider signing him to satisfy the fans that wanted him in Jacksonville in the first place?

David Garrard has come on lately after another shaky start this season, but his tenure in Jacksonville is still in question. Would head coach Jack Del Rio, general manager Gene Smith and owner Wayne Weaver give Tebow a look after one season in Denver?

Another question: Would Tebow entertain playing a different position other than quarterback if his future in the NFL were in doubt?

When it's all said and done, the Jacksonville Jaguars could end up with Tim Tebow anyway after passing on him in the 2010 draft. Surely, Tebow would enjoy playing in front of his hometown fans, but would the Jaguar Nation welcome him back to Jacksonville?

One other thing to consider is the possible lockout of the 2011 NFL season. The way it looks, there may not be a season next year, and all of this talk will be moot.

Stay tuned.
