If the Denver Broncos sign free agent quarterback Peyton Manning, it was been widely assumed that the team would then trade quarterback Tim Tebow. We at BT however aren’t so sure that the team would trade Tebow in such a scenario.
There is at least one player in Denver’s locker room that agrees, stating that Tebow would not request to be traded if the team acquired Manning. Fifth-year offensive tackle Tony Hills, who was a first-year Bronco last season, was on the Vinny and Robo Show on KaoticRadio on Monday evening and said Manning and Tebow could coexist on the same team.
When asked if he thought Tebow would ask for a trade if Denver acquired Manning, Hills said: “That’s tough, I feel like only Tebow could answer that question — but I can say based off of his character and from hanging out with him and playing with him this past season, that he’s just somebody that wants to learn — he wants to win. If Peyton came, I feel like they would be able to coexist,” Hills told the Vinny and Robo Show.
Hills noted that Tebow would accept the role of learning under Manning, with the goal of getting better in mind.
“I feel like he [Tebow] would do everything in his power to learn the tricks of the trade. When you have a Hall of Fame quarterback right there that you can pick up things from and ask questions, that’s a great thing, especially when guys are always trying to get better.”
“Based off of his character, I do think he would be able to coexist with Manning, but like I said you would have to ask him,” concluded Hills.
