Just because they're no longer teammates doesn't mean Von Miller is any less a fan of Tim Tebow, whom he predicts will be the New York Jets' starting quarterback in 2012. The Broncos pass-rusher and NFL defensive Rookie of the Year was one of Tebow's staunchest supporters last season when the popular but polarizing quarterback supplanted Kyle Orton as Denver's starter. Miller said Monday that he understands why the Broncos went after Peyton Manning and then traded Tebow, whom he predicts will supplant Mark Sanchez as the Jets starter. Miller said: ''I think everybody's mistaken if you think he's just going to go over there and be a wildcat quarterback or a situational quarterback. The Tebow that I know is going ... to be able to compete for that starting job.''

A few hours after beating the Knicks at Madison Square Garden Sunday, Dwyane Wade made his way to Yankee Stadium to watch the Yankees play the Angels.
