Bovada Lists Cleveland among most likely landing spots for Tim Tebow

Gambling site Bovada lists the Cleveland Browns as the fifth-most likely landing spot for the recently replaced Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, given 12/1 odds.

Following the news surrounding Peyton Manning heading to Mile High, the displaced Tim Tebow becomes the subsequent storyline following his playoff run with the Broncos.  The Browns slot behind the Jacksonville Jaguars (3/2), Broncos (7/4), Miami Dolphins (7/4) and New England Patriots (7/1) as Tebow’s employer during Week 1 of the 2012 NFL season.

The Browns come in dead last among all NFL teams at 150/1 odds to win Super Bowl XLVII. This represents a drop from the 100/1 odds they were given six weeks earlier; Las Vegas is apparently none too thrilled with the relative lack of an offseason in thus far in Berea.

    Just saw Alex Smith talking with the Dolphins. For amusement purposes only, I’d like to see the 49ers obtain Derek Anderson. Follow them around with reality show cameras: Great coach fixed a perennially underachieving #1 pick but now bravely faces his greatest meathead challenge.

    No problem.  The Browns can just move Joe Thomas to RT to protect the ‘bow’s blind side and we can check that off our list of needs.

    After Tebow those odds will plummet.  BETTER JUMP ON THAT 150:1 NOW WHILE THERE IS STILL VALUE!!!

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    God please let Tebow end up in Cleveland! 😉

  • ClevelandFan14

    For Tebow’s sake, I hope he doesn’t get traded here.

  • Campana724

    I’m down for Tebow, I like my runnings back to have the option to throw

  • Who will give me 20/1 odds on the Browns winning 4 games or less?

  • swig

    Maybe for under 1.5

    /sorry to nitpick

  • LOL, ok.

    Never going to happen… this is the mentality of idiots who think “Oh, the Browns’ QB situation isn’t settled.  Tebow is now available.  Browns could go after Tebow!  Also, fire bad!”  I just can’t see Holmgren having any interest in Tebow as a QB.

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Also, words out of the horse’s (Holmgren’s) mouth according to Terry Pluto: “…the Browns will not be in play for Tim Tebow. At a recent press conference, Holmgren answered one of my questions by saying how he didn’t think it was wise for a team to drastically change its offense — as Denver did for Tebow. I didn’t bring up Tebow, Holmgren did. So don’t even start with that speculation. “

    I tried to look it up, because I’m a nerd.  That would be an awful wager for you (something like 12 teams have 0-1 losses since the early 70s).  Sadly this might mean the odds of it happening are better than winning the super bowl.

    I’ll give you under 2.5 and wager one image of an orange tim couch bear.

  • I’ll take that bet!  I need/want/must have that bear.

  • Tim

    Accuracy isn’t at all important for a quarterback in the West Coast offense, so this sounds like a great idea.

  • Foghorn Leghorn

    This would assume the team has an offense in the first place…

  • Tebow landing in Cleveland has about the same chance as Lake Erie drying up…AIN’T HAPPENING! and thank god for that, he’s a bum!

  • Mpasadyn740

    a bum who won a playoff game against a team cleveland cant beat

    I don’t see why Cleveland would not take a flier on Tebow. Kid wins. And, is a much better backup then Seneca Wallace.  We could probably get him for a 3rd or 4th.

  • Gbwoy

    Sweet baby Jesus, if the Browns do this, they’ve lost all their marbles.  I’d rather have another year of McCoy and I’m not at all a McCoy fan.  If you’re not going to upgrade the team, just don’t do anything by trade.

    Get a RB, RT, RG and a stud WR (Blackmon please, no trading down) in the draft.  See what he can do with some weapons around him and some time to throw.  Probably, he proves for certain what most of us already are pretty sure of: he’s a backup QB.  But he has a better chance of being ssuccessfulin this system than Tebow.

  • Ezzie Goldish

    I’d take Tebow for a 5th rounder and see about having him as an option RB. No harm there. He’s actually a really solid runner.


    Since when is “all options are on the table” not considered an acceptable nonanswer. Instead we’re interested
    in NO ONE. I guess the truth is they can’t close a deal even when they do want it, so why attempt anything and
    set yourself up for failure? Good message to the kids…
