FOXSports.com NFL insider Jay Glazer reports that the Broncos traded quarterback Tim Tebow on Wednesday to the New York Jets for a draft choice in the fourth and sixth rounds.

The deal – which was facilitated by Denver’s signing of Peyton Manning to a five-year, $96 million contract – spells the end to one of the wildest chapters in the franchise’s 52-year history. One of the NFL’s most popular players since being drafted by the Broncos in 2010, Tebow was promoted into the starting lineup ahead of the struggling Kyle Orton six games into last season.

The former Libyan dictator Moammar Khadafy was killed Thursday, according to the country’s prime minister.

Reports early this morning indicated that Khadafy was either captured or dead. Later Al-Jazeera showed footage of a man resembling the former leader bleeding from gun shot wound to the head.

Khadafy, who was ousted by rebels this spring, was reportedly killed by a 20 year old named Ahmed Al Shebani who found him hiding in a hole in the city of Sirte.

“New Yorkers know better than almost anyone else how evil a man Moammar Khadafy was. Hopefully his death will bring some degree of closure to the many families who lost loved ones on Pam Am Flight 103. The world is a better and safer place without him,” Senator Charles E. Schumer said in a statement.
