Tim Tebow Officially Signs 2 Year, Non-Guaranteed Deal
Less than 24 hours after the announcement shook the football world, the polarizing quarterback has officially signed his deal. Sources confirmed to ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Tim Tebow has signed a two year deal with the New England Patriots with no guaranteed money.
Ed Werder was told that Tebow is there specifically to play quarterback and nothing more, nothing less. With several tight ends on the roster, it would not make enough sense to move him there even though many suggested he could take the place of Rob Gronkowski until he is back. Those few may be forgetting about Aaron Hernandez, among others.
The fact of the matter is, Tebow will not be starting. So, what are the possibilities for him in New England? At the moment, that has yet to be discussed. What we do know, is that Tebow will be placed into a great situation if he wants to further develop his skills.
Over the past month, Tebow has been working with former NFL quarterback Chris Weinke in effort to tweak his mechanics and improve his throwing motion. Weinke told USA Today that he believes Tebow can be an NFL quarterback.
“Like I told Tim when I found out (Monday) that he signed, ‘You’re locked and loaded, ready to go,’” Weinke said.
In New England, Tebow is reunited with his former head coach of the Denver Broncos, Josh McDaniels, who moved up in the first round of the 2010 draft in order to grab him.
This move comes as a surprise to many due to head coach Bill Belichick reportedly saying he disliked Tebow as a player and there was “no chance” of the team signing him according to Yahoo! Sports.
Starting today, it appears Tebow is set to compete with fellow backup quarterback Ryan Mallett for the spot behind Brady. Not many believe the Patriots will keep three quarterbacks going into the season – last year they kept two- but then again we are talking about Tebow and Belichick. In this case, you never know.
The brief moment Pittsburgh Steelers fans preferred Duce Staley over “The Bus”
There's no question the relationship between Steelers fans and Jerome Bettis, the legendary running back who will be inducted into Pro Football's Hall of Fame next month, was one that was made in Heaven. But, for a brief moment in 2004, after signing former Eagle Duce Staley was the focal point. Long story short, Bettis would bully his way into the end zone after Staley would carry them down the field. Hard to imagine, but Bettis at one point was receiving boos in Pittsburgh. Read More
