The Jaguars are back in the mix, seeing if they can pull off a trade with the Broncos to land Tebow, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This comes after Denver's initial deal with the Jets hit a snag late Wednesday afternoon.
The Jets and Broncos agreed to a deal that would have sent the polarizing quarterback to New York, but the two teams have reportedly encountered a hangup because of some language in Tebow's contract, which has threatened to nullify the trade.
According to Schefter, Tebow has $5 million worth of "recapture language," meaning the Jets would have to pay money back to the Broncos as part of the deal, something they may not be willing to do.
Schefter reports that one league source has indicated that the Broncos' trade with the Jets will go through, but that the contractual issues are complicating matters. That has opened the door for other teams to get back on the map in the Tebow sweepstakes.
The Rams reportedly could wind up getting back into the Tebow mix as well, although we'll see if contractual issues arise in any deal involving them. Schefter reports that the same money issues that have caused complications in Denver's deal with the Jets have also complicated matters for Jacksonville trying to complete a trade.
Got all that?
