"Well, that was an interesting couple of weeks! Now that things have finally settled down a bit, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you great Denver fans for all of your support. The ride that we were able to enjoy together this past season is something that I will always cherish. I'd also like to thank all of my former coaches and teammates as it was an honor to play for and alongside each of you. I will always be grateful to the Broncos organization for giving me the initial opportunity to fulfill my dream of being an NFL quarterback. GB²," Tebow wrote.
GB² stands for "God Bless" and "Go Broncos."

Tebow was traded from the Broncos to the New York Jets last week after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning as the team's new quarterback.
A few minutes, later, Tebow posted another Facebook message, this time to his New York fans.
"I've already said it 44 times so here goes number 45: I'm really excited to be a Jet! Haha! All joking aside, it's truly an honor to be a Jet and I'm anxiously looking forward to going to work with all of my new teammates and coaches. Fireman Ed and the rest of Jets nation, I'm gonna play my heart out for you. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!"
