Tim Tebow is heading to the Big Apple!

The deeply religious quarterback was traded to the New York Jets on Wednesday following his position at the Denver Broncos being filled by Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning.

Tebow will add to the already high star power – and hunk factor – in New York as he joins current QB Mark Sanchez, who has dated a string of hot celebrities including Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton and Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

As previously reported,  after signing a five-year, $96 million deal with former Indianapolis Colts star Manning, the Broncos got a fourth round draft pick from the Jets in return for Tebow, reported

Current starting quarterback Sanchez need not worry about his role as top dog on the team though, as two weeks ago the Jets gave him a three year, $40.5 million contract extension.

At 6-foot-3 and 238-pounds, Tebow will back up Sanchez and be used “as a change-of-pace player with the ability to run the wildcat offense,” according to ESPN.

Tebow rocketed from a college football sensation to a household name last year when he led the Broncos to a string of last minute comebacks that were always celebrated with his signature move of dropping down on one knee to pray, which was dubbed Tebowing by NFL commentators.
