With Peyton Manning’s arrival, the Broncos will move to properly dispose of the previous QB1, Tim Tebow. Denver is reportedly looking to trade Tebow, and a handful of teams are reportedly already interested. But Cardinals linebacker Joey Porter still isn’t buying any Tebow stock and likened him to a certain teenage pop star who likes to say “baby.”

“Anybody who brings him in right now, you would think they’re trying to do it for ticket sales,” Porter said Monday night on NFL Network. “So it’s just like, it’s good to have a Justin Bieber because you’re gonna get a whole lot of (fans). That’s what I compare it to. He’s the Justin Bieber of the NFL.”

It sounds awfully similar to the sentiment Antonio Cromartie also expressed regarding Tebow. But in his own weird way, Porter isn’t wrong. Tebow obviously currently lacks fundamental quarterback skills. There’s room for improvement, but it’s not going to happen overnight. And yet, it’s been reported that the struggling Jaguars have interest in Tebow mainly because he would provide a much-needed boost to their’ slumping attendance numbers.

It’s pretty sound marketing strategy, but what if Tebow isn’t able to recapture his magic from last year? The Jaguars would eventually be back again to playing in an empty stadium already half-covered by tarps. Maybe then they’d better off signing the actual Justin Bieber.
