Attention: This is the New York Jets. We are in New York. This is the media capital of the world. We refuse to allow you to pay attention to any other team, especially a team in a little backwater like New Orleans. Do not pay attention to New Orleans. We have traded a fourth-round pick for Tim Tebow. All your Twitter are belong to us. There are no Saints. There is no suspension. There is only Tebow and the Jets.
UPDATE: Mike Klis of the Denver Post now says it is actually a fourth and a sixth.
UPDATE II: Or, maybe this deal doesn't happen. Apparently, there's a snag because the Jets didn't read language in Tebow's contract that would require them to pay an extra $5 million to Tebow in salary advances.
UPDATE III: Adam Schefter just reported Tim Tebow is in fact going to the Jets with a seventh-round pick in exchange for a fourth-round pick and sixth-round pick. Jacksonville wins and Mike Tanenbaum learns a value lesson in reading the fine print. -Tom

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
