The comparisons between Kansas State's Collin Klein, a Heisman Trophy candidate, and former Florida star Tim Tebow, who won the Heisman in 2007, are not lost on people. Both are big, physical, run-first quarterbacks who aren't the prettiest of passers. The are also humble, straight-laced Christian fellows who are known as fierce competitors. Their statistics may end up being similar, too. In 13 games during his Heisman-winning season, Tebow passed for 3,286 yards and 32 touchdowns with six interceptions, completing 66.9% of his throws.

It's a good thing Tim Tebow didn't agree to a season in the arena leagues. Tebow will sign with the New England Patriots just in time for Tuesday's mandatory minicamp, ESPN is reporting. He will reunite with Patriots offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Josh McDaniels, who was the coach of the Denver Broncos when the team traded up to select Tebow with the 25th pick in the 2010 NFL draft. When the New York Jets traded a fourth- and sixth-round pick for Tebow last season, it created a quarterback controversy that loomed over the team throughout the season as starting quarterback Mark Sanchez struggled.

The Denver Broncos have traded quarterback Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, according to multiple reports, a move that isn't stunning in that it comes a day after Denver signed Peyton Manning. The acquisition of Tebow also comes after the Jets extended the contract of quarterback Mark Sanchez. According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets will send a fourth-round draft pick to the Broncos for Tebow. In a news conference Tuesday to introduce new quarterback Manning, Broncos executive John Elway praised Tebow but added: “I think with the opportunity to have Peyton Manning's services, we had to take advantage of that.

Has Tim Tebow come to the conclusion that his NFL days are over? There were conflicting reports Friday about the feelings of the quarterback's inner circle, with ESPN magazine's David Fleming reporting that members of Tebow's camp are “privately admitting that the NFL run is probably over,” and a source close to Tebow telling NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, “It's not true.” Regardless, the New York Jets parted ways with Tebow last month, and...

Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift shared a meal together Monday, so clearly they're in a super serious relationship. On the real, whether the pair have a star-studded romance (?), friendship (?) or business partnership (?) has become an enigma, a viral comet of Internet lore. Since they've remained mum about their rapport, we can only speculate which of the country singer's songs best describes her relationship with the Denver Broncos quarterback. Here are a few options... "Love Story" (If you've been to a wedding recently, you've heard it.)

Tim Tebow keeps ticking off those New York rites of passage, and Monday's Costume Institute Gala held at Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum of Art was the latest. The newly crowned New York Jet caused quite the stir in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo (talk about All-American), distracting red carpet beauties, journalists and designers. "I'm just so blessed to be here," Tebow told Vogue magazine's William Norwich on the red carpet. The bespectacled writer quizzed the football star as to whether he prayed before arriving at the fete, which drew attendees like Cate Blanchett, Tom Brady and Giselle Bundchen, Rihanna and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Many say Tim Tebow doesn't possess the skills to be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL. Tebow is tremendously skilled, however, in answering critics. And the critics are not letting up. Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, who hosts a morning New York radio show, is the latest to bash the former Heisman Trophy winner, and Esiason's opinion continues to reverberate via the New York airwaves. “If I were the Jets . . . I would cut Tim Tebow, I really would,” the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback said during his show.

Tim Tebow is human (despite what some people might think). We human beings all have feelings. And those feelings can get hurt when someone you think is your friend talks trash about you behind your back. (Hey, Mike Whateveryournamewas from sixth grade, I'm looking at you. Yeah, I heard what you said about me to Fred Whatshisface that one day before homeroom. Not cool, jerk.) Oh yeah, we were talking about Tebow. Anyway, some of his New York Jets teammates said some not-so-nice things about him in the New York Daily News the other day. And to make it worse, almost all of them did it anonymously.

This week's Friday edition of our NFL Google+ hangout -- "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam," starring Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and Mark Thompson of "Mark and Brian" radio fame -- will start at 11:30 a.m. today and cover a host of topics. One topic could include the fast decline of Tim Tebow. As Farmer wrote earlier this week , "For a guy who can find the good in just about anything, even Tim Tebow is having problems putting a positive spin on what's gone on with the New York Jets this season.

Tim Tebow has heard boos before, although usually those were for former Denver Broncos starting quarterback Kyle Orton back when the beloved Tebow was his backup. But the boos at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night were definitely for Tebow, now the New York Jets' backup quarterback who was hanging out with Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade as the New York Yankees took on the Angels. Sure, there were a smattering of cheers from Jets fans and probably some random Tebowmaniacs in the stadium.
