Oh and Jacksonville was unwilling to pay "their best player" more than 4.5 million per year this past summer. You realize the Panthers are paying Deangelo Williams 8 million per year. Johnathan Stewart 6...Jacksonville's contract to MJD right now is pretty insulting.
I believe they are willing to get rid of him. Either way I can't see him sticking around in Jacksonville after that mess. Jacksonville isn't willing to pay out big money, and you can't blame them. New owner, and they have problem selling tickets. Tebow helps that franchise way more than MJD.
He did that (well he didn't, he led a potent 16 ppg offensive juggernaut) LAST YEAR. That information was already there for JAX to evaluate. Look at JAX's stadium. They have tarps on 25% of the field because they can't sell seats. That didn't just happen, that was the same issue last year as well. They KNEW Tebow would almost instantly fill those empty seats and they still wouldn't part with that 3rd round pick. Who care what reason was behind DEN's sending him for our 4th instead of JAX's, all they had to do was say "hey, here's our 3rd!". This is (in your mind) a starting caliber QB that instantly sells tickets. They still said no. They are not gonna change their mind now and just say they made a mistake and give up their best player on the team to make up for it. Whether you want to see it or not the current regime in JAX, including the owner, do not value Tebow the way you do.
