This move makes perfect sense. That means they can possibly pick up marshall with the 6th pick, draft an OT with the 14th pick and draft Tebow in the 2nd round. Let him sit a couple years while Hassleback plays himself into retirement. Or they could go OT at 6, Spiller at 14 and still get Tebow in the 2nd
They have major needs at RB, on the DL and at S as well, wouldn't be so sure the move was a means to try and get Tebow necessarily with their 2nd round pick. They are bringing him in for a workout but that doesn't mean they are looking to draft him. They also will put a value on him and if it is not 2nd round or higher I doubt they would reach. It's possible they could but I wouldn't look at the decision to trade Wallace as a way to clear a roster spot for Tebow.

I could see Indy doing that with Tebow.
Indy did let Sorgi walk and they took Painter last year, appears he will be the backup going forward but Tebow to be the 3rd QB and possibly use a little wildcat with him could be conceivable. Who better to groom him than Peyton right ?
New England is another team and they have #22 + 3 2nd rounders so I would not be surprised if they took him and like Indy they have a perfect mentor.
