ESPN - Unusually quiet in recent weeks, the New York Jets shattered the calm Wednesday by completing a trade for polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Jets sent two picks -- a fourth-rounder and sixth-rounder in 2012 -- to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a seventh-round selection.

Tebow, a former first-round pick, went on the trading block Monday when the Broncos secured free agent Peyton Manning, who signed a five-year, $96 million contract.

Several teams expressed interest, including Tebow's hometown Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Jets -- perceived as a sleeper at the outset -- pulled off the splashiest trade of the offseason.

Seriously probably the last team in the NFL i thought would pick up my man Tebow.  Jets fans have been booing Sanchez more and more every year and this is only going to give them more reason too.  The only thing that makes me happy about the trade is the fact that I think Tebow will get on the field in certain packages at first then end up taking that scrubs starting spot.  Anywhere else I think he would strait ride the pine and not have a chance to prove his worth.  I also can't wait till Rex Ryan uses the lords name in vain and makes Tebow cry in the locker room then tells him to man up.  Makes for a couple good story lines.
