Tim Tebow to New England may be a tough sell even with the quarterback’s former head coach serving as offensive coordinator. A Patriots signing of Tebow has been thrown around by the media since the former relationship between Tebow and Josh McDaniels.
While McDaniels may be the offensive coordinator he does not call the shots in Foxborough. Bill Belichick holds that honor and according to Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports, Belichick “hates” Tebow as a player.
Unnamed “organizational sources” are the basis for Silver’s report but given his past it is safe to assume Belichick would rather stear clear of the circus that would follow with having Tebow on the roster.
“You don’t want to put up with the circus,” an unnamed AFC head coach told Silver.
“He seems like a great guy to have on a team, and I’d be tempted to bring him in as our backup,” an NFC head coach told Silver. “But it’s just not worth dealing with all the stuff that comes with it.”
Tebow has never opened eyes in practice, something that likely cost him some playing time with the Jets. Tebow also has been largely uneffective prior to the start of the fourth quarter.
Currently no team has expressed any interest in Tebow who was recently named the most influencial athelte in sports. Tebow does have an offer from the Omaha Beef, an indoor football team who offers $75 per game.
