An ex-Los Angeles cop and accused killer at the center of a California manhunt wrote "goodbye" messages to a variety of celebrities on his personal website before allegedly murdering three people — including an L.A. police officer — according to TMZ.com. One of the reported messages was addressed to New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow. Christopher Dorner is at the center of a massive manhunt by thousands of police officers in Southern California and neighboring states after going on the lam. The fugitive posted a message to the NFL player as part of an "uncensored manifesto," according to law enforcement agents. There were also threats to police officers and their families. In the message to Tebow, Dorner wrote: “Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game,” Christopher Dorner wrote. “You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be 'Tebowing' when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez.” Dorner also wrote notes to Ellen DeGeneres, Charlie Sheen, Christoph Waltz, Larry David and Anthony Bourdain.  Tebow was the only sports figure. There was no word on if Tebow, or any of the other recipients, was in any imminent danger.
