Just hours after it was announced, the Tim Tebow Jets deal has hit a road block. The New York Jets announced on Wednesday they would be taking on the now redundant Denver Broncos quarterback as a backup QB for Mark Sanchez. Now, however, it turns out there may be a snag with Tim Tebow’s Broncos contract that could sour the deal.
According to ESPN, provisions in his contract with the Denver Broncos has thrown a speed bump in the way of the Tim Tebow to Jets trade negotiations. Apparently, as part of Tebow’s Broncos contract, he was paid out a $6.277 million advance in August. In order to finalize the Tim Tebow to Jets trade, the team could find themselves having to actually pay back a large chunk of that advance money to the Broncos.
