The hang-ups in the Tebow to New York trade ended up being no big deal and the Jets paid Denver $5 million compensation. I love that Tebow will be backing up a QB who is always rumored to be sleeping with a different model every couple of months.

This makes sense. Kamerion Wimbley is gone and the Raiders are in need of another big pass-rushing outside linebacker. I'm still intrigued by the possibility of the Packers signing him.
