Play him? Trade him? Cut him? Story below --

The consensus in speaking with a handful of team personnel executives when it comes to one Tim Tebow is this: A trade could happen, but it's becoming increasingly likely the Broncos will keep or cut Tebow because the trade interest is dwindling rapidly.

The executives portray the Tebow situation as a complicated one. They believe that while the Broncos are not openly trying to trade Tebow, they say that when teams have recently inquired about him, the Broncos haven't been saying he's off the trading block, either.

Again, just to be clear, the Broncos aren't openly shopping Tebow but teams that have asked were told: Make us an offer we can't refuse.

The Broncos might deny this, but based on their recent actions, it seems they're realizing Tebow might not be a bona fide NFL thrower. Tebow was the third quarterback in Denver's last game. It might not stay that way, and there is a solid chance Tebow simply stays in Denver and learns and the franchise keeps him around.

But do you put a guy you like in that kind of embarrassing situation? Probably not.

The are two big problems for the Broncos and Tebow. First, there's the belief that the Broncos might even cut Tebow (I don't see that), so why would a team trade for him?

Second, some in football think Tebow might need to be switched to another position. One team executive says he believes Tebow would be a Pro Bowl fullback, a belief I've heard several times from others around the sport.

It's a complicated matter with no easy solution for the Broncos or Tebow. In a few weeks, or even less, we'll know his future for sure.

Why the Broncos drafted him in the first round boogles my mind.

That was a Josh McDaniels move.

Yep. McDaniels is a very good offensive coordinator but he was not head coaching material.

What's embarrassing about being a back-up QB in the NFL? I don't get this.

Their best option, IMO is to do what the article mentions and try him at a different position...like a FB or HB.  Use him in wildcat formations on occasion where he can throw or hustle with the ball.

I agree. A second year guy that was going to be a "project" according to just about every scout should not be embarrassed to be a backup.

Its Jesus Christ himself.  Just ask CBS, the guy is the lord and savior of all things Football.  The guy could throw 20 TD's in a single game, then perform 10 circumcisions with his teeth 5 minutes after the game ends according to CBS and the SEC

Those are CBS' words. Not Tebow's. CBS might be embarrassed by a young player sitting on the bench and trying to work his way up, but Tebow himself seems to have a MUCH better grasp on reality that that. I know people hate him because the hype the media bestowed upon him, but the guy himself seems as solid as they come and his team mates love him. He has tremendous work ethic and leadership abilities and his team mates recognize it.

Except that he was a high draft pick, that is where the problem is.  If he had been selected in the 2nd round, not a word would be mentioned right now.  But considering where he was picked, the guy should be starting already

He WAS starting last year. But that coach was fired. So no, I don't think they have to start him right now, nor do I think he should be embarrassed that he didn't win the starting job.

And as already mentioned, he was always expected to be a long-term project anyway.  I see nothing unusual with him sitting another year.
