Tim Tebow is out as the starting quarterback in Denver, as the Broncos are on the verge of inking Peyton Manning to a contract.

The former Heisman Trophy winner may soon be sent to Jacksonville, but Jockey wants Tebow to know he'll always have a job as a model, even if he fails as a successful signal caller.

Tim Tebow Jockey Ad

Despite the uncertain status of its most famous client, the clothing company has issued the following statement:

"Jockey brought Tim Tebow on as a spokesperson before he took his first professional snap and even before he finalized his contract with an NFL team. Jockey supports him 100% and we look forward to continuing our great relationship with Tim."

What do you think the Broncos should do?

Green Bat Packers star Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd weren't among the Dancing with the Stars leaders in Week 1, but they were among the most entertaining.

The show hit the casting jackpot with Driver. He may not be the best known or famous NFL player, but he's a genuine fan of the series. He's seen every episode!

"I've been watching these guys, Maks and Derek, since the beginning, so now's the time to copycat," he said. In his cha cha with Peta, he definitely tried his best.

Their technical aspects needed some work (they scored a 21, five back of Jaleel White), but they can both really work it for the camera. And they're hot. Enjoy:

NFL free agent quarterback Peyton Manning will play for the Denver Broncos next season, he announced today, instructing his agent to finalize a deal with the team.

That news left the Titans, 49ers and Tim Tebow as disappointed bystanders.

Manning’s move from Indianapolis to Denver could make the Broncos the team to beat in the AFC West, assuming Manning returns to full health in 2012.

Denver is willing to take the risk, despite Manning missing the entire 2011 season, in which Tebow emerged as a breakout star of sorts for the Broncos.

Manning and Tebow

Manning’s deal is huge for a 36-year-old - it's expected to be worth $90 million over five seasons, according to a report by Mike Klis of The Denver Post.

His signing likely means the end of the road in Denver for Tebow, who led the team to the playoffs and was assumed to be the Broncos’ No. 1 QB in '12.

Manning’s arrival obviously changes all that. Denver now appears set to try to trade Tebow (if anyone has interest in the bad, yet exciting quarterback).

Team President and Broncos great John Elway backed Tebow late last year and into the start of this offseason, but still sought a veteran QB to push him.

Instead, the veteran QB they signed is possibly the best to ever play the position, so it will likely push the popular Tebow right out of the Mile High City.

It's a tough situation, but as problems go, having to deal Tebow is a good one to have. Today, “Manning Watch” is over. “Tebow Watch” has just begun.

With Princes Harry (Brazil) and Prince William (the Falklands) otherwise occupied, it fell to Kate Middleton to help ramp up the excitement as the ambassador of the 2012 London Olympics during a private visit to the city's Olympic Park.

Did she ever. She worked out with Team Great Britain's field hockey squad!

  • Sporty Kate Middleton
  • Dressy Kate Middleton

Having played the sport herself (and even serving as her school's captain), the ever-game Duchess wasted no time joining in with the ladies. So how'd she do?

As with everything else, Kate Middleton proved herself to be a total natural.

"I was really looking forward to coming here, but now I am here and have discovered I have to play," she told the men's and women's teams beforehand.

"I am not feeling confident. The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven't held a stick for 10 years. This is going to be so embarrassing."

"My brain thinks I can do these things, but my body doesn't play ball. Oh, please don't tell me I have to do it in front of all these people!" she joked.

Kate missed the first three of her goal attempts, but ultimately scored a goal - to rapturous applause from all players and observers, of course.

Middleton swapped her blazer and heels for a gray Team GB sweatshirt, coral jeans and Adidas sneakers. She looks great in both ensembles, no?

NFL star Brandon Marshall has been accused of - and denied - punching a woman in the face at a New York nightclub despite detailed reports to the contrary.

According to reports, the wide receiver was outside a club in Chelsea around 4 a.m. last Sunday morning when he got into an argument with a group of people.

He allegedly threw a punch that connected with 24-year-old Christin Myles.

Marshall, B

It's unclear at this time if Brandon Marshall intended to strike the woman ... or if she was collateral damage as Brandon was trying to KO someone else.

Either way, Myles says she suffered a black eye and filed a police report.

According to the New York Post, Myles was nervous about filing because of Brandon's high profile status, but ultimately she decided to go through with it.

But Marshall's lawyer says the 6'4", 230-pounder did NOT strike Myles, however, claiming she was hurt in a DIFFERENT brawl that went down at the club.

Remind us never to go out to said unnamed club.

BTW: Marshall was just unloaded by the Miami Dolphins in a trade to the Chicago Bears for a couple of draft picks. Nicely played by the 'Phins.

Peyton Manning and Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay held a joint press conference this morning in which they confirmed his days in Indy are over.

Manning played 14 years in Indy, earning 11 playoff appearances, 11 Pro Bowl selections, eight division titles, four MVP awards and one Super Bowl.

"I sure have loved playing football for the Indianapolis Colts," he said. "I've been a Colt my entire adult life ... but we know nothing lasts forever."

"Our circumstances make it best for us to take this next step."

Peyton

Manning choked back his emotions. "I love it here, I love the fans," he said. "I'll leave the Colts with nothing but good thoughts and gratitude."

"I've been blessed to play here," Manning added, thanking the city, fans, team and media. "Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart."

Owner Jim Irsay lauded Manning's career with the team while announcing its conclusion amid a "long difficult process." They will retire his #18 promptly.

Irsay says the Colts' salary cap issues and decision to rebuild necessitated his release, but Manning was "completely unselfish" in accepting the outcome.

"There will be no other Peyton Manning," said Irsay while getting emotional. "We've been so blessed to have him. He's always part of the horseshoe."

Manning said he was "confident" about resuming his NFL career, though it's unclear where that might take place when the NFL returns in September.

Tim Tebow as The Bachelor?

It's been talked about, by host Chris Harrison no less. This week, Chris asked the Denver Broncos star whether he would be interested in being the star of the show.

"They always say yes, but it never happens," Harrison said. "He did say yes ... but he would never do it. He has a little job called quarterback for at least another year."

Tebow said he'll pass, so to speak, via Twitter: "Haha rumors can be crazy! Even though I've watched the show before, I'm definitely not gonna be on the Bachelor."

Could you imagine if Tim Tebow were The Bachelor, though?

The dates he would take the women on would be amazing:

  • Listening to Taylor Swift and sipping water at home
  • Tebowing at various national landmarks
  • Hanging out with his family
  • Playing board games
  • Watching game film

NOTE: For the latest developments on the wild, crazy current season, which Tebow most definitely would not approve of, follow this link for The Bachelor spoilers.

Former college football star Marcus Vick, the younger and possibly more troubled brother of Michael Vick got popped this weekend for contempt of court.

Marcus turned himself in to authorities in Newport News, Va., on Sunday after a warrant was issued for his arrest for failing to appear for two court dates.

Those dates stem from a suspended license charge, and by not showing, Marcus not only joins our celebrity mug shot page, but will spend 10 days in jail.

Sweet deal. He will then be transferred to officials in Montgomery County, Va., to face separate charges stemming from an unrelated incident. Great.

According to reports, Vick failed to pay a $40,000 settlement in a civil case in which he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl in 2008.

Marcus Vick was 19 at the time.

Vick was booted off the Virginia Tech football team back in 2006 following a string of arrests and has been involved in multiple legal issues since.

Disgraced former baseball star Lenny Dykstra on Monday was sentenced to three years in a California state prison after pleading no contest to grand theft auto.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Ulfig sentenced Dykstra to hard time after refusing to allow the 49-year-old to withdraw his no contest plea.

Ulfig said the scam to lease cars from dealerships by providing fraudulent information and claiming credit through sham businesses showed sophisticated planning.

Dykstra has had a series of legal woes in a post-career downward spiral that has included a stint at a sober living facility and exposing himself to peeps on Craigslist.

In a rambling, impassioned plea for probation, Dykstra said he's tried to make amends for past transgressions and said he would be cleared of any wrongdoing.

"I'm doing everything in my power to be a better person," he said.

The judge wasn't buying it and denied his request to undo his plea of no contest. Dykstra, wearing a gray suit with a blue shirt, was remanded to custody.

Dykstra has earned nearly a year's worth of credit due to time already served. His defense attorney said Dykstra was singled out because he's a celebrity.

Dykstra initially pleaded not guilty to 25 counts after police arrested him and found cocaine, Ecstasy and synthetic human growth hormone at his home.

He changed his plea in October to no contest and in exchange prosecutors dropped 21 criminal counts ... but the big ones still earned him a trip to prison.
