NEW YORK (WFAN) — Football was on the docket Thursday morning when Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway joined the “Boomer & Carton” show.
There was no shortage of Tim Tebow talk. After all, this is New York, and Elway functions as executive vice president of football operations for Tebow’s former team — and don’t forget, Boomer Esiason famously called for the Jets to cut the backup quarterback in August.
Elway and the Broncos traded Tebow to the Jets last March. The swap came on the heels of Peyton Manning’s move to Denver.
“I think Tim Tebow has a lot of fans. You know, and I had to take care of the Denver Broncos,” Elway said in his sit-down with Esiason and Craig Carton. “And Peyton Manning was the best thing for the Denver Broncos.”
