The Rams and Tim Tebow

Dilip Vishwanat

According to the rumor mill, it almost happened last year. We're happy it didn't.

Doug handles the Front Office Fiction around these parts. Still, I'm not sure any author could have taken on what might have happened in a world where the St. Louis Rams traded for Tim Tebow last offseason.

It may or may not have almost really came to pass last year. Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reminded us Wednesday morning that the Rams were supposedly one of three teams initially interested in Tim Tebow last spring when the Broncos were trying to deal him.

According to one Denver Broncos source, when that team floated his availability on the trade market earlier this year, three other teams inquired about his services: the Jets, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the St. Louis Rams. Of those teams, the Jaguars naturally still make the most sense, particularly since their own quarterback situation is even more in flux now than it was when they originally proposed their trade offer in the first place.

What a frightening dystopia, for the Rams and all of us. I have my doubts as to the validity of it. It looks an awful lot like of those situations where someone, the Donkey's front office or an agent, is trying to drum up interest by putting another team in the mix based on some vapor of authenticity.

Having seen 14 games of the 2012 season, I think it's safe to say that Tebow wouldn't have had that much impact on the Rams. Certainly not enough of an impact to outweigh the distraction it would have created.

Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make.
