Things could get ugly soon between the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos. A clause in Tim Tebow‘s contract requiring a trade partner to compensate the Broncos over $5 million in paid salaries and bonuses has caused the initially reported deal to hit a snag, but the Broncos are prepared to argue that the deal should stand anyway,’s Jeff Darlington reports.

It’s a lesson you think an NFL General Manager would know well by now, but always read the fine print.

    Let the Jets out of it. Jags will pay the money and hopefully give us earlier picks. DO IT!

    Doubtful. Why would they? Broncos may take. The money in lieu of better picks.

    $5 million isn’t as versatile as 2 draft picks you didn’t have before. Draft players of need, package picks to move up, move down, or trade for other players. The money will just go back into a bank account some where. We lose more money bringing players in and watch them get cut when they can’t/don’t make the roster.

    Jacksonville will get the $5 mill back by putting butts in the seats, jerseys, etc.

    Well, it must mean something to denver or there wouldnt be this “snag”. And jax’s previous offer mustve been for less, initially, since theyve said they knew of the money. Denver isnt in a position of power here. And giving up a 7th? Really?

    I think we are in the position of power.  If Jax knows about the $5 mill, which they do, and are still willing to pay it, we have room to negotiate that money.  Although the organization seems to want that cash instead.  It’s probably just wishful thinking on my part however. 

    Rumors have been floating that we’ll send Tebow to Jax for their 4th and 7th or WR, and they pay the $5 million.  Not sure how true it is, or how credible the source is. Could just be some hack on Twitter thinking he’s cool.   

    If it is true then it’s a better deal than what the NYJ were giving us (Tebow + 7th for 4th + 6th).  We would move up 8 spots from 108 (NYJ pick) to 101.  IMHO anyways.
