The man with messianic charisma and hunky bone structure has struck an impediment on his path to NFL stardom.
For the majority of this brief and savage NFL Training Camp 2011, Broncos starting QB Kyle Orton was widely believed to be headed out of Denver via a trade of some kind. This would have cleared a path – palm fronds and all – for Tim Tebow to inherit the Broncos starting QB job.

Plaxico Burress spent two years in jail because he accidentally shot himself. Think about it.
