DENVER -- New Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning says he'd be happy to be Tim Tebow's teammate, "but if other opportunities are presented to him, I'm going to wish him the best."

Manning's arrival as the new quarterback in Denver, made official Tuesday, has put Tebow's status in limbo.

Manning was asked if he discussed Tebow's future with the team while he was negotiating to join the Broncos.

He says those aren't his decisions and that "those conversations never came up."

But, the quarterback said: "I know what kind of player Tim Tebow is, what kind of person he is, what an awesome year it was. If Tim Tebow is here, I'm going to be the best teammate. If other opportunities are presented to him, I'm going to wish him the best."
