Denver As the Broncos move into the Peyton Manning Era, their next task is finding a trade partner willing to take 25-year-old quarterback Tim Tebow.
Even though he earned performance escalators by beating Pittsburgh in the playoffs, Tebow has a trade friendly contract. In 2012, his contract is for $1.1 million, in 2013 he’ll earn $1.055 million and 2014, he’ll earn $895,000. If Tebow takes roughly 40 percent of the snaps in 2012, he would make an additional $11.25 million in combined salaries in 2013 and 2014.
But only $490,000 in 2012 and $232,500 in 2013 salaries are guaranteed.
