Denver Broncos president John Elway has already mentioned that Tim Tebow has done enough to be the team’s starting quarterback heading into training camp. While it may seem as though that’s a strong vote of confidence, the fact that he choose to say training camp and not the start of the season suggests that there’s a strong possibility that Tebow will have competition in place next year.
Elway was pretty forthcoming about the team’s plans for the position at the Senior Bowl.
“We will be in the market to find more quarterbacks,” Elway told the Denver Post. “That’s our approach with Tim being our starter as we go to training camp, that we’ll look at free agency and the draft.”
Elway even mentioned that he’s looking for a “big athlete who can throw the ball from the pocket” which seems to be the exact opposite of Tim Tebow. It’ll be interesting to see to what extent he’s willing to go to bring in competition at the position. Denver could use their first-round pick on a quarterback depending on how the top portion of the draft plays out or he could look to a later round.
