Hickenlooper Hopes Tebow Stays, Learns From Manning

Tebow 'Remarkable Person'

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is hoping the Broncos hang on to Tim Tebow so he can learn under the tutelage of Peyton Manning, if Denver lands Manning as expected.

Hickenlooper said Monday that Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play the game but called Tebow "a remarkable person."

ESPN first broke the news Monday morning. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted, "Peyton Manning called John Elway this morning to tell him he's looking forward to coming to play for him."

The Broncos haven't formally acknowledged Peyton's decision or said what they would do with Tebow's contract.

Hickenlooper says Tebow has conviction and heart and isn't in the game just for money.
