One can only imagine what Mark Sanchez is thinking.

The Tim Tebow trade is complete and the former Denver Bronco is headed to the New York Jets for a fourth-round pick in April’s NFL Draft, according to ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini.

“Unusually quiet in recent weeks, the New York Jets shattered the calm Wednesday by completing a trade for polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow, the team confirmed.

“The Jets will send a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos, a source said.

“Tebow, a former first-round pick, went on the trading block Monday when the Broncos secured free agent Peyton Manning, who signed a five-year, $96 million contract.

“Several teams expressed interest, including Tebow’s hometown Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Jets — perceived as a sleeper at the outset — pulled off the splashiest trade of the offseason.”
