Tebow mania sets in for Brooklyn fans

Tebow mania is already setting in for some Brooklyn football fans following a trade to the New York Jets.

Tim Tebow was put on the trading block after the Denver Broncos signed former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning earlier this week. The Jets then gave up a fourth and sixth round draft pick, and will pick up a portion of a $5 million salary advance for the popular quarterback.

Jets leadership says the plan is to have Tebow back up quarterback Mark Sanchez, who was signed to a contract extension this month.
