It's been a heck of a year for young Tim Tebow. He never really got the chance to play, got passed over for the No. 3 guy after the team finally benches Mark Sanchez, and eventually gets cut. Rex Ryan and the New York Jets organization really pulled the wool over his eyes by making him--and the rest of us--believe that he was going to be a secret weapon.
That's okay because in the end it is Tebow that is getting the last laugh.
There are three reasons why Tebow is getting the last laugh with the Jets.
First--he's not playing for them anymore (sorry Jets Nation but your team is a train wreck).
Second--not only did he sign with their division foe, he is on a perennial Super Bowl contender in the New England Patriots.
Those two things alone would be enough, but there is more. One more thing in fact, and it is a whopper.
The Jets are still paying for him, and will actually spend more on Tebow this season than the Patriots will over the life of the two-year contract he signed with them.
Tebow is due just $1.385 million from New England over the next two seasons. When the Jets agreed with Denver to trade for Tebow they had to take on some of the salary that Denver advanced Tebow; $2.53 million to be precise.
They covered a million of it last season and will be covering the other $1.53 million this season.
While Tebow wears a Patriots jersey. And goes to the post season. While the Jets will likely be out of post season contention by Thanksgiving (if not sooner).
Tim being Tim will never laugh or even see it as 'getting the last laugh.'
That's okay Tim. Those of us who aren't as good a person as you will do plenty of laughing for you.

The Jets are still paying for the epic failure that was the Tim Tebow experiment last season — in more ways than one. Aside from the dismal 6-10 season, complete front office revamp, and utter destruction of what little confidence Mark Sanchez had left already — not to mention Tebow is currently on the arch-rival New England Patriots’ roster, the Jets still have more to pay...

13 years ago, the New England Patriots selected a quarterback in the sixth round of the draft. Nearly no one would have charted his path to a starting job in the NFL as anything but a long shot. Tom Brady was not even expected to challenge for playing time, let alone become the number one back-up for a very good starter in Drew Bledsoe.And then the unthinkable happened; Drew is sidelined...
The tight end position in American football has evolved to arguably the most vital position in a modern day offensive package. A talented and productive tight end not only is a key extra blocker for when a running back scampers to the outside right, but he also needs to be fast enough to catch a ball down field and move the chains. Certain NFL teams utilize the tight end position...
