Post the link stating they offered picks for Tebow.
What else were they going to trade for him? cash? The fact JS picked up the phone and called the Jets to acquire Suckerfish Tebow showed that he was willing to trade SOMETHING for Tebow (JS knows trades are not free). The Seahawks wanted Tebow, JS called on tebow, however the the draft picks that JS had in mind (or cash) was lower then the Jets wanted. A simple deal that died.
But It is in Seahawks history that we did want him, but the numbers did not add up for the deal.
You keep insisting that we called up the Jets and made an offer. There are no facts to back that up. You can inquire as to a players trade value without making an offer. That is completely different than entering into a deal and saying, "Psych", to use your example. The closest thing anyone can find is that JS inquired what it would take to acquire Tebow. Again, that is different than making an offer.
Whether or not JS had a price in mind is irrelevant. All that is available in quotes, media or print is that JS was doing his due diligence and checking with the Jets as to the cost of Tebow.
I don't really have anything more to say on this subject until i see your link.
