Tebow Joined at Camp

Tim Tebow will be fully prepared for the 2010 season as he is signed and in camp.

Even though the Broncos are not expected to contend for a Super Bowl Championship and Tebow is not anticipated to be a starter, he could be a factor later in 2010.

Denver’s second of two number one draft picks in this season’s draft was brought in on a five-year contract worth $11.25 million with a guarantee of $8.7 million. However, with performance incentives, Tebow could earn in excess of $33 million over the life of his contract.

The Denver Broncos commenced training camp with Kyle Orton posted as the number one quarterback on the depth chart. Orton directed Denver to a surprising 6-0 start last year before the Denver Broncos collapsed and finished with a record of 8-8 as they missed what had looked like a certain playoff spot.

The Denver Broncos other number one choice, receiver Demaryius Thomas, who was selected 3 spots ahead of Tebow, continued to be unsigned until recently. He was signed to a five-year, $12.155 million contract. The final signing for the Denver Broncos happened in time for Thomas to miss only 3 days of meetings and 4 one-hour practices in the course of the rookies-only camp. Thomas was the 1st wide receiver taken in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Tebow has brought a degree of exhilaration and anticipation to Denver that hasn’t been seen since John Elway’s arrival in 1983. Tebow is being touted as a new face for the franchise, and his jersey has already been the greatest seller in the league prior to the opening of training camp.

Tebow is different from Elway, the Denver Broncos renowned hall of fame quarterback, in that he is not a pure passer with a rocket arm. What makes him so popular with fans is his athleticism and his remarkable work ethic. He won the Heisman Trophy while playing college football for the Florida Gators in 2007. In 2008, he almost won it again, finishing 3rd in the running this time around. He entered the 2010 NFL Draft after finishing out his senior year.

Tebow is anticipated to be a legitimate menace from the famed “wildcat” formation, which plays better to his capacity as a runner, much like Michael Vick. Denver likes to refer to the “wildcat” as the “Wild Horse.” Brady Quinn is also in camp for Denver as he and Tebow are likely to battle for the second string spot behind Orton.

Denver coaches will want Tebow to run in the course of exhibition competitions to test his capacity.

Tebow has also made sports news for his other big deal as the official spokesman for jockey underwear, which will spark some kidding from teammates and catcalls from fanatics.

Josh McDaniels, head coach, enjoys Tebow’s sturdiness. “I think that’s part of his demeanor,” said McDaniels. “I think that is also part of what he brings to your football team.”
