Manning's contract is 5 years/$96M. He gets $18M guaranteed this year. He must take and pass a physical each year of the contract--if he fails or gets hurt he only gets paid for that season. There are incentive clauses built in to the contract as well.
I'm sorry, this just doesn't make sense. With Tebow you had a kid you could build your team around for the future. With Manning you are spending a ton of money on a 36 yr old with medical issues in the hope of winning a Super Bowl within 5 years.
Tebow would benefit from having Bill Belichick as a coach and Tom Brady as a mentor.

I see Tebow just got traded to the Jets. Very interesting.

Tim Tebow trade hits snag, deal with New York Jets could be off.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal between the Denver Broncos and New York Jets to send Tim Tebow to the
Big Apple has hit a snag that could nullify the blockbuster trade.
The two teams reportedly agreed to the deal before the Broncos requested that the Jets pay back salary and bonuses
that were already paid to Tebow.
Tim Tebow has $5 million worth of recapture language," Schefter tweeted
, "meaning Jets would have to pay back money to Denver. Jets might be unwilling."
Similar language ended trade talks between Denver and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Schefter noted. He later
wrote that a league source believes the trade will eventually go through. If it doesn't, the
St. Louis Rams could get involved.

That stinks for these bros who somehow already purchased matching Tebow Jets jerseys in the three hours since the trade was announced.
