"Does God have a clipboard for me?" – Tim Tebow
We were close, everybody. We were close to never having to hear Tim Tebow's name on ESPN ever again, but Bill Belichick apaprently wanted to send out an assistant to secretly record everybody's reaction. Because he just signed Tim Tebow. ESPN Boston reports:
Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Tebow signed a two-year contract that includes no guaranteed money. "Tim is a talented player, is smart and works hard. We'll see how it goes," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday.Tebow, who is expected to participate in the team's mandatory minicamp Tuesday, was signed to be a quarterback on the Patriots' roster, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder. When asked what position Tebow will play, Belichick said, "we will see." Apparently tired of the Tebow questions, the coach tried to change the subject after several minutes. "We've already talked enough about him. We'll see how it goes, take it from there," he said.
If I had to bet, Belichick probably signed Tebow to replace Gronkowski. But Tebow is a devout Christian, so that means his unwavering faith that he can play quarterback despite all evidence to the contrary will force him to sit and pout on the bench while masking his tantrum with feigned humility. Sorry, did I get too deep on you with that? Also, that's a question Tebow will never ask a receiver. OOOHH TEBOW BURN!
