Why Tim Tebow Will Not Even Have Bread Alone To Live On Next Year

Why Tim Tebow Will Not Even Have Bread Alone To Live On Next Year

The Patriots wrapped up possibly the most high profile signing of a back-up quarter-back in history on Tuesday when Tim Tebow put pen to paper on a two year contract.

While many are suggesting that Tebow is not worth the inevitable media circus, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that the deal actually looks like a pretty low risk investment from New England's point of view. Tebow will recieve a base salary of $630,000 with a full injury split if placed on injured reserve in 2013, which is is a straight veteran's minimum deal.

That will rise to $730,000 in 2014, when he will be offered a number of playing time based incentives. If he plays 60 percent of the Patriots games, he will be entitled to a $500,000 bonus, which increases incrementally to $2,000,000 for playing 80 percent of the games and reaching the playoffs or winning ten games.

Most of this is probably irrelevant though, as Tebow will only get near a starting position if Tom Brady is injured and he manages to leapfrog Ryan Mallett in the Pats' pecking order.
