Time to Trade Tebow

Time to Trade Tebow

John Elway was hired to put his stamp on the Broncos. He was brought in as team’s executive vice president of football operations to make the tough decisions that are necessary to build a winner.

He spent hours in front of his TV watching guys run the 40, bench press and weave through the cone drill. Peter is single with no kids, clearly has more time than me and was hoping to gain some valuable information. But given the choice, I’d rather take my kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked ... Full Story
