Is Tebow now untradeable?

The consensus in speaking with a handful of team personnel executives when it comes to one Tim Tebow is this: A trade could happen, but it's becoming increasingly likely the Broncos will keep or cut Tebow because the trade interest is dwindling rapidly.

The executives portray the Tebow situation as a complicated one. They believe that while the Broncos are not openly trying to trade Tebow, they say that when teams have recently inquired about him, the Broncos haven't been saying he's off the trading block, either.

Again, just to be clear, the Broncos aren't openly shopping Tebow but teams that have asked were told: Make us an offer we can't refuse.

The Broncos might deny this, but based on their recent actions, it seems they're realizing Tebow might not be a bona fide NFL thrower. Tebow was the third quarterback in Denver's last game. It might not stay that way, and there is a solid chance Tebow simply stays in Denver and learns and the franchise keeps him around.

But do you put a guy you like in that kind of embarrassing situation? Probably not.

The are two big problems for the Broncos and Tebow. First, there's the belief that the Broncos might even cut Tebow (I don't see that), so why would a team trade for him?

Second, some in football think Tebow might need to be switched to another position. One team executive says he believes Tebow would be a Pro Bowl fullback, a belief I've heard several times from others around the sport.

It's a complicated matter with no easy solution for the Broncos or Tebow. In a few weeks, or even less, we'll know his future for sure.

OK...Dr, Gatorbait...what makes YOU think Timmy Tea Pot can be a Pro style QB??? I guess John Eleway and John Fox are idiots and just about all the analysts in the country. I can appreciate his off the field demeanor BUT that does not always equate to NFL level play.

Additionally, this has nothing to do with college and I do remember a night in Tiger Stadium when he mocked the crowd with the cell phone antic...then proceeded to LOSE the game...that's right...TT lost to LSU...I guess you were too busy getting your PhD in Sociology or some other nonsensical discipline to remember. Or maybe you were too polluted to remember.

Take it easy, JoePa!

Timmy is looking forward to visiting with you this afternoon.

Now, please take your meds.  That's a good JoePa.
