Default I'll post the contract numbers in this closed thread ...

Andrew Brandt breaks down the Manning contract:

Quote:
Year One

Manning will make $18 million -- his jersey number -- regardless of injury. Simple.

Years Two and Three: The physical and the waiver

Not so simple. Manning will undergo what is termed a “postseason physical” 10 days before the start of the 2013 League Year, sometime in late February or early March. In the event Manning passes that physical, he will activate a $40 million guarantee, paid out as $20 million salaries in both 2013 and 2014.

The Broncos will have further protection with an injury waiver to Manning’s neck for these two years. In the event Manning suffers an injury that is related to his C-6/C-7 cervical spine fusion “and related pathologies,” the Broncos will be able to reduce the guarantee for the following year. For example, were Manning to suffer an injury in Week 10 of 2013 related to his neck injury, the Broncos would pay the rest of the 2013 salary, but not be on the hook for 2014.

The waiver gives the Broncos protection on one “body part” of Manning; the key body part of the transaction, his surgically repaired neck.

Years Four and Five: Annual physicals and guarantee

Manning is scheduled to make $19 million in both 2015 and 2016. The amount becomes guaranteed when Manning passes his physical prior to the start of each League Year. This is similar to the guarantee above, although on a year-to-year basis rather than the two-year guarantee of 2013-2014.

Of course, the Broncos can release Manning prior to that physical in either year and avoid any future liability.

Gabbert has a potential future as a quarterback, Tebow doesn't. In a trade, Gabbert has more value.

If your goal is to sell tickets and jerseys as a football owner, then Tebow undeniably has more value.
That is a ridiculous statement... Who is calling who a bust again!? Tebow won consecutive games and a playoff game as a young starter. What has Gabbert done again?

They both have potential... Tebow>Gabbert anyday of the week IMO...

It's not a ridiculous statement.

Tebow isn't a bust as a football player - he's a darn good football player. He's not a long-term quarterback in the NFL because he's viewed as being incapable of playing anything outside of a gadget college offense that's about to go Wildcat 2010.

Just watch the lukewarm leaguewide interest in the guy "who won consecutive games and a playoff game as a young starter".

If NFL franchises viewed him as being a long-term answer as a franchise QB, teams would be crawling all over each other to acquire him. That ain't happening.

Tebow in Florida is like Kim Jong-Il in Korea. Considering Jax is PAYING people to sit in the stands to promote ticket sales, I think that bringing him there is pretty much their only chance at saving the organization. They have a horrendous market and are going down fast. Jersey/Memorabilia sales are in the cellar, and Tebow jerseys would fly off the shelves.

I think Miami might be out of the running now that they signed Gerrard, but for the chance at Tebow, you never know.
one of my favorite charger posters...whats up man....

i agree, i think Jax is the fav for landing Tebow...

Radio station up here in the Bay Area are saying the 49ers have inquired about Tebow as well. This while Harbaugh is trying to patch up the Smith situation.

it IS a ridiculous statement...

the argument isnt whether Tebow is a legitmate future starter. The argument is Tebow vs Gabbert...

and right now Tebow clearly wins...

if Tebow generates, as u call it, lukewarm interest, then Gabbert's interest would be freezing cold...
