Ever since his release from the New York Jets, there’s been plenty of talk surrounding where Tim Tebow could end up for the 2013 season–even if it is a different football league from the NFL. At this point, it’s difficult to say any team that would make a good fit for Tebow in the NFL, but there may be one team that would be good for him to sit as a backup and learn from one of the best–the New Orleans Saints.
Tiny bit #Tebow news: he’d like to go where he can sit, learn behind great QB & coach. New Orleans would be perfect, for example.Advertisement

Obviously, there’s no chance Tebow would ever be able to compete with a quarterback like Drew Brees, but he could certainly learn a ton from playing behind the future Hall of Famer and a move like this may be exactly what he needs. Brees has one of the strongest arms in the NFL and for a player that has struggled with his football mechanics–this could be the perfect situation for the former first-round pick.
The chances of Tebow earning a starting job in the NFL seem slim at this point, but this would be a low risk situation for the Saints that could hopefully turn into a high reward for New Orleans. Brees is the perfect mentor for just about any quarterback and even if they aren’t interested at the moment–this is certainly a move the Saints should at least consider.
Imagine a guy like Tebow living in a crazy place like New Orleans next season–oh how epic that would be.
