Tim Tebow did a lot of things Sunday that no one expected (like throw for exactly 316 passing yards). One such thing: unlocking a $250,000 bonus in his contract for winning a playoff game.

A clause in Tebow's contract paying him that money was activated on Sunday night according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, when Tebow won a playoff game. For every playoff game that Tebow wins, provided he's taken 70 percent of his team's snaps in a season, he gets an additional $250,000.

Tebowmania

We already knew that Tebow unlocked a $472,000 bonus for playing in more than 45 percent of his team's snaps back in December.

Closing out the season as the starter, Tebow passed the 70-percent threshold and now is owed an additional $250 GRR.

If the Broncos somehow manage to topple New England, Tebow will be in line for an additional bonus. (And the same is true up through the Super Bowl, giving Tebow the potential to earn an extra ... one million dollars.)

And you know what's almost as funny as Austin Powers jokes? Thinking back to before the season and imagining a world where Tebow not only played in 73 percent of the Broncos plays in 2011, but discussing the possibility of him making an extra quarter-million as a result of beating the Steelers in the playoffs.

Yet, somehow, here we are.

This mystique couldn't be happening to a more deserving kid. I don't understand why we make so many excuses for all the thugs in pro sports and want to crucify Tebow. There is not one of you haters out there who wouldn't like your sons to be like Tebow or your daughters to date someone like Tebow even you athiests. This kid is everything that is right about sports listen to his interviews he gives his team mates and coaches all the credit and when he is praised for his play he thanks god for his oppurtunities to be in the situation he is in. Most haters still dislike him for being a ex Gator. I am a die hard Miami U fan and i wish this kid all the best he is what is right about sports today. If you are a high school coach have your players listen to his interviews this is what a good coach would want his players to sound like.

No spammy links

People come here to get away from spammy links to pathetic adsense "blogs."  Please take your spam somewhere else, and don't disgrace the name of Tom Brady by associating it with your amateur website.  

Also, it's really bad form to "review" your own work by telling us how "great" it is.  If you want traffic, buy some and get them on your mailing list.  Then, you will be selling to people who have given you permission to pitch.  

Anyway, thanks for ruining a perfectly good comment field.

You should donate your minimum wage paycheck to charity, cause I'm quite certain that you don't deserve it...

That's a nice bonus for Tebow. Remember he started the season on the bench.

Why would you say he doesn't deserve the bonus? Denver wrote the contract not Tebow, he just fulfilled the contract so he is owed the money.

Most likely he will give the money to charity (not because he doesn't deserve it ) but because that is the type of person he is.
