It's common knowledge that New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick loves to grab castoffs from AFC East teams to gather as much information as possible for future strategies. The Patriots knew way ahead of time Tebow would never be a starter as long as Brady was healthy and able to play. They effectively used him and cut him even though he would have been a great backup to have just in case.

If you ask any of the teammates that Tebow has played with during his tenures with the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Patriots they will all say the same thing about him. Tebow is a great leader and knows how to get the most out of those around him. His "never give up" mentality has always fueled his desire to play 110% on each and every down. Tebow takes control and delivers at every opportunity thrown his way.

Across the world, everyone knows who Tebow is and what he brings to the table. It was just a few years ago that "Tebowing" was trending worldwide on social networks. Anywhere he goes, fans will flock to support him -- this means tickets, merchandise and a huge increase in fan base. Tebow could easily bring a media frenzy to any team in dire need of a big boost on the field as well as off it.

Most people forget that with the Broncos, Tebow had some incredible success as a starter including winning an NFL playoff game in overtime. That was when he was given the keys to do what he did best and not worry about changing positions or being limited with his role on the team. If he can get full total support on a new NFL team, he will prove why he's a game-changing quarterback.

The Jets ruined Tebow's career by turning his presence into a complete media circus. They made him do ridiculous wildcat type of plays and even had him line up as a receiver. This was of course captured for the world to see, including other teams that could have potentially been new homes for him. Tebow deserves one last shot with a team that believes in his playing abilities and not one that has no idea how to truly utilize his strengths.
