According to several different reports and sources, Tim Tebow is about to sign with the New England Patriots, although it’s not clear in what position since they already have Tom Brady as their quarterback.
Right now, the Pats are not confirming nor denying anything, with their spokesperson simply saying, “I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight.” However, several sources say that Tebow is expected to be at the minicamp tomorrow, so I guess we’ll find out soon.
Tebow was let go from the New York Jets several months ago after a season of bad playing. Tebow’s always been one of the most polarizing NFL players out there, and his last season with the Jets barely saw him take the field and was considered extremely lackluster.
However, things could still turn around for him. Even though there were rumors floating around about how the Patriots coach Bill Belichick supposedly ‘hated’ Tim Tebow, it’s clear that that’s not the case. I still can’t really figure out what Belichick’s plan for Tim is, but experts on the subject have always said that while Tebow might not be the greatest quarterback, he’s still a damn fine football player.
Are you guys happy with the possibility of Tebow playing for the Patriots? Keep in mind, while there are rumors flying wild right now, there is nothing confirmed as of now. If he really is expected to report to minicamp tomorrow, we’ll have our answer then, but it’s still speculation until then – especially because the Patriots already have a fantastic QB who’s still at the peak of his career as well as a backup for him. That being said, it will be interesting to see the public reaction from Patriots fan if Tebow is actually signed. Let us know what you think in the comments.
