You probably are not going to believe me, but the Tim Tebow trade to the New York Jets is off again. However, it should be completed on Saturday. Due to some complicated language in his contract, Tebow must remain on the Denver Broncos salary cap for 24 hours and then he will be traded on Saturday, once he agrees to a brand new contract.
The Jets have postponed their press conference until Monday. This trade is perfect for Tebow, in the sense that it is spiraling out of control. It has taken on a life of its own and it seems to be self-sustaining. Just like Tebowmania has been.
I doubt that the deal is cancelled, but the suspense is still building. Every day that the deal is not done gives it a chance to unravel. It would be a first, but I don’t believe that it would exactly shock everyone. I know that I am expecting anything and everything to happen with this trade.
After this, Tebow better walk on water or learn how to throw a football. This trade has made more hype than any sports story in recent memory. How often does a trade get put on hold twice due to contract issues? I can not come up with any other examples.
As always, we will keep you updated with this as long as the story lives. At this rate, it’s going to be until 2014 for a clear resolution, but that is neither here nor there. At least the tabloids have something to write about.
