After the Broncos lost at New England in the divisional round, football chief John Elway declared Tebow the starter heading into training camp this summer but stopped short of saying the third-year pro had won the job for opening day next season.
The Broncos haven't ruled out bringing back Quinn, who didn't take a single snap in his two seasons in Denver after being acquired from Cleveland in the trade for Peyton Hillis in 2010.
Besides Tebow, the only other quarterback under contract for next season is Adam Weber, who spent last season on the Broncos' practice squad.
The Broncos will try to add a couple of quarterbacks through free agency and the draft.
Elway, a two-time Super Bowl winner and Hall of Famer who rejoined the franchise last year, has said Tebow must morph into more of a pocket passer to succeed long-term in the NFL.
Coach John Fox reintroduced the option offense to the league last year and Tebow piled up yards on the ground, but he completed less than half his passes in both the regular season and the playoffs.
Tebow has already spent time working on his throwing motion and mechanics with UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone in Los Angeles this month. Mazzone also helped him work on his fundamentals coming out of Florida, where he was a three-time All-America, a two-time national champion and a Heisman Trophy winner.
