Details on Tebow Contract: Can only get full $2M if...


Some of the details on the Tim Tebow are getting leaked and it looks like it is going to be somewhat impossible for Tim Tebow to gain the full $2 million in incentives. It will take some sort of miracle. Luckily, that is when Tim Tebow is clutch.

Here are some of the contract details that were leaked from USA Today:

The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the financial terms weren’t to be disseminated publicly, said Tebow will earn the full $2 million only if he’s on the field for 80% of the offensive snaps and the Patriots win 10 games or make the postseason.

Tebow will earn $500,000 if he participates in 60% of the plays in 2014, $1 million for 70% or $1.5 million for 80% of the plays without reaching the playoffs or winning 10 games.

The deal is brilliant for the New England Patriots. They only have to pay of he gets on the field and makes an impact. 80% of the plays? The only way that he can do that is if he is the starting quarterback from day 1! Even if he moved to tight end or fullback, there would be a tough shot at playing 80% of the snaps.

    This is not rocket science, this contract was written for Tim to be third string QB in 2013 and second string QB (or traded) in 2014. The 2014 contract pays if Brady is out for some reason and Tebow actually plays and/or he is starting elsewhere.
