Here is a First Take debate on the Broncos’ plans to bring in two quarterbacks to compete with Tim Tebow. I think the key is to see what two quarterbacks are going to be brought in before deciding if Denver really is planning to give Tebow legitimate competition this year.
If Denver brings in a journeyman and then takes a project quarterback late the draft, then, we’ll know our answer. Remember, the Broncos have already announced to the world that Tebow will head to training camp as the starter, so that will not interest capable free agents in coming to Denver.
I still think Denver will give Tebow every opportunity to prove himself this season and then make its long-term plans heading into 2013. Thus, the competition Denver will bring in will be more of the backup variety.
