Elway and Broncos coach John Fox called Tebow on Monday night to tell him it was possible he would be traded.

Elway said he wanted to do right by Tebow, who took over a 1-4 team and led the Broncos to the AFC West title and a playoff win over Pittsburgh.

“It would be our goal to get him in the best situation possible for him to have success also,” Elway said.
