Tebow is Patriot’s Ultimate Project

By admin | 4 years ago

It took less than half of the first full squad practice by the New England Patriots to offer up intrigue as to how Tim Tebow will be used this fall.

Tebow took turns lining up at a number of skill-positions including with receivers, tight ends and running backs.

During one receiving drill, he burst past two defenders to catch a pass, while in another with the receiving targets took passes without any coverage and then turned up field and was the target of two passes by Tom Brady.

Therefore, some proof came to the surface that Tebow, who has said he wants to be developed as a quarterback in the NFL rather than be switched to another position, better quickly grasp the thought that to be the team’s third quarterback he has to contribute by playing another role on the team.

Tebow told over two dozen reporters that he just did what coaches told him to and would work as hard or harder than others work and do his best at whatever task is asked of him.

At this point, he is not in any position to be choosey and is fortunate he ended up with New England, whose head coach Bill Belichick is one of the most resourceful coaches in the NFL and to be reunited with Josh McDaniels the team’s offensive coordinator. McDaniels, while with the Denver Broncos, believed in Tebow’s talent and drafted him from Florida in the NFL’s first round in 2010.

Prior to practice, when reporters asked Belichick if he would use the new player just at quarterback, Belichick said he would use his project wherever the team feels he will do best for New England.

It is obvious after just one official full squad practice that it will be at some position besides quarterback.

Some have said H-back, others a fullback tight end dual role and other see just tight end.
