NEW YORK — The brother of Tim Tebow says he thinks the snag in the deal between the Denver Broncos and New York Jets has the talks "almost back to square one."

Robby Tebow, playing at a pro-am golf tournament at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla., says Wednesday that he and the Broncos quarterback "thought it was done, like he was signed, sealed and delivered. Apparently, they didn't read the fine print."

ESPN first reported that provisions in the quarterback's contract are causing complications in the completion of the trade. The Jets announced early Wednesday that they had agreed in principle to acquire Tebow for draft picks.

A Broncos source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Tebow's contract includes a $6.2 million salary advance;  $1.2 million has been paid by Denver. The difference -- $5 million -- would shift to the Jets in a trade, ESPN reported. The Jets, sources said, believe the Broncos should owe Tebow that money.

The trade, then, will not be finalized until the sides resolve who should pay the money to Tebow, according to ESPN.
