Tebow is probably already lining up his next job. The one that will truly make him a fark ton of money. Televangelist. Who has more money, one team owner or millions of gullible Americans?

The dude should've just been a running back. But no, he had to be a QB. Well you'll get to do it, Tim. On a 50 yd field in a soccer arena.

Somebody will pick him up, they are just waiting for the Jets to release him so that they don't have to pay so much money for a backup or longshot to be a starter. Jacksonville with Gabbert or Henne might take him, Minnesota with Ponder or Webb could use him, Kansas City with Cassel or Quinn could use him. All three teams have an ace running back that will make the Tebow option offense work.

It's not a good draft for quarterbacks and all three have other more pressing needs in the draft anyways.

Jacksonville has already said no, Minnesota wouldn't see an improvment, and Kansas City just got Alex Smith.

Moving on:
BC Lions: Have Travis Lulay, one season away from being the Grey Cup MVP
Calgary Stampeders: Have Drew Tate and Kevin Glenn (very good combo)
Edmonton Eskimos: Have Mike Reilly, backup from BC last year who had very good outings in limited duty
Saskatchewan Roughriders: Have Darian Durant and Drew Willy, Durant had arguably his best season as a pro last year
Toronto Argo's: Have Ricky Ray, who was the MVP of the Grey Cup last year
Hamilton Tiger Cats: Have Henry Burris who threw for over 40 TD's last season
Montreal Alouettes: Have Anthony Calvillo, who has thrown for more yards than any QB ever (CFL or NFL), should break 80,000 yards this season.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers: Have Buck Pierce, who just got injured reading this, and a combination of Joey Elliot and Alex Brink that is great at throwing interceptions.

So other than possibly Winnipeg, Timmay is destined for the AFL because no one else wants him.

Maybe him and Terrel Owens can play on the same team?
We would cheer for T.O. to destroy him?  I would.

Vikings already grabbed Cassel as a new backup... or maybe competition for Ponder.

I hope it's an arena where he has to fight off lions.

He'll make exponentially more on the evangelical circuit and it'll be tax free. He'll be fine.

I appreciate the info, I haven't been keeping up with the NFL news since the Superbowl. Looks like Tebow's only chance as a QB in the NFL would be to go somewhere as a backup for the minimum and wait on someone to get hurt. Nobody will do that until after the Jets release him. And the "Tebow mania" circus that comes along with him still might make teams look the other way for that role too.

I still say he should sign with the Packers as a back-up. Having to see Skip Bayless' face as his golden boy sits behind  Aaron Rodgers, would be worth having the tebomania circus.

He'll go to the Patriots, but only as a Fullback.

In other news, folks who exploit social issues to garner attention that they would not otherwise obtain through their mediocre skills are often ridiculed as 'attention whores.' Tebow is an attention whore. Any team that picks him up is going to do so either because they need a backup or because they need the attention. Most pro teams don't need the attention. So, he'll either get picked up by an NFL team as a backup, or he'll end up in another league as an attention-getter. Or, he'll quit football entirely and become a mediocre evangelist, because God loves a quitter.

But I was assured by the Teebpostles that he was an NFL elite because he won more playoff games for the Broncos than a 36-year old Pro-Bowler who was coming off of neck surgery.
