Coach Bill Belichick won’t reveal Patriots’ plans for Tim Tebow
The role the Tim Tebow is suited for in an NFL offense has never been quite certain, and Patriots coach Bill Belichik isn’t revealing how he intends to utilize the former Florida Gator’s skill set.
Tebow has spent most of his NFL career as a quarterback in some capacity for the Denver Broncos and New England’s division rival New York Jets. However at a news conference Tuesday Belichik kept his plans on lockdown as expected.
“Tim’s a talented player who’s smart and works hard. So…we’ll see how it goes.” tight-lipped Bill Belichik told the press in the usual Belichickian style, as termed by the LA Times, “We’re going to do what we think is best for our football team.”
The Patriots signed Tebow to what is rumored to be a two year contract late this morning according to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter. Tebow had success at quarterback in Denver, leading the Broncos to the divisional round of the playoffs in the 2011 season, before falling in that game to Belichick’s Patriots. After two seasons with the Broncos, and going 8-6 in those seasons, Tebow played minimal time with the New York Jets this past season.
The New England Patriots do not need a starting quarterback by any means, which is the benefit of having one of the best in the game in Tom Brady, so the impact Tebow will have for the Patriots this season, if any, is up in the air.
