Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets on Monday, three days after the team drafted West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith and a little more than a year after it traded a fourth-round draft pick and $2.5 million to Denver to obtain Tebow's services. Tebow was a superstar in college, winning a Heisman Trophy and two national championships with Florida. Though many doubted he had the qualities of an NFL quarterback, he was picked by Denver in the first round of the 2010 draft. After winning over the fans, who were extremely vocal in their support of him over struggling starter Kyle Orton in 2011, Tebow was eventually named the starting quarterback and led the Broncos into the second round of the playoffs in the 2011 season.
