Tim Tebow Offered Opportunity With CFL’s Montreal Alouettes
Tim Tebow may not have a ton of options for work in the NFL after getting waived by the New York Jets, but he does have one solid option: the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said Tebow is more than welcome to come to Canada and compete for the backup job behind Montreal starting quarterback Anthony Calvillo. Considering the Alouettes are like the Yankees of the CFL, that’s a pretty nice honor for Tebow.
There are a handful of NFL teams that would be good fits for Tebow, especially if they used him at positions other than quarterback. Ever since he entered the 2010 NFL Draft, Tebow has been called a fullback, tight end, H-back, special teams ace and Wildcat specialist. Considering he could potentially play each of those positions, Tebow will find a new home with a team that utilizes quirky players, such as the New England Patriots.
Of course, not everyone is keen on the Patriots signing Tebow, but that’s probably the case for every NFL team that hasn’t ruled out bringing in the former Heisman Trophy winner for a tryout. Put simply, the opinions vary widely, even within one outlet like Rant Sports:
