Tebow already on trade block

Well, that didn't take long.

No sooner had news leaks of the Denver Broncos winning the Peyton Manning derby than a report emerges that the team wants to deal 2011 starter Tim Tebow.

Albert Breer of NFL Network says the Broncos have already put Tebow on the trading block.

Meanwhile, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Alex Smith, who felt a little disrespected by the 49ers' pursuit of Peyton, prefers to go back to San Fran rather than sign with the Dolphins in the event that the Niners failed in their pursuit of Manning, which of course they did.

The Dolphins have already been turned down by Manning, Matt Flynn and possibly Smith - not to mention Jeff Fisher as head coach.

Memo to Jeff Ireland: Make a run for Tebow.

The Dolphins have been on a front office losing streak all off-season. The franchise is so stagnant that the Jay Fiedler era is starting to look like the good old days. Steelers safety Ryan Clark even bashed the 'Phins, saying no one wants to play there.

And while it is the opposite end of the state, Tebow is a Florida native, and many Floridians still back the Dolphins because of their once-glorious history and the fact that they were the state's first pro franchise.

Yes, Tebow is short on passing polish, but he is long on moxie and infectious energy, something the Dolphins have definitely been in short supply on in recent years.
