With Peyton Manning headed to the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow could be on his way out of the Centennial State.

ESPN reports that the Broncos are set to explore the Tim Tebow trade market after Manning told his agent to complete negotiations with Denver.

Could the New England Patriots be a possible destination? It seems unlikely considering that the Patriots already have an MVP quarterback of their own. But Tebow and Bill Belichik have both showed plenty of respect for each other and Josh McDaniels, New England's offensive coordinator, drafted Tebow in Denver.

John Clayton said on ESPN Radio that he has heard a rumor that New England might be interested in Tebow.

"Here's an interesting proposition, just a rumor. Let's say you have Manning going to Denver," Clayton said on ESPN Radio. "Tim Tebow is probably going to be traded. He's not going to Jacksonville, they've already got Chad Henne. New England. You trade him to New England and groom him to be kind of a role player, and then you trade Ryan Mallett in some way. It's just a rumor." (via MassLive.com)
