Just when you thought the Tim Tebow saga was over: ESPN reporter Ed Weder says that the New England Patriots are signing Tebow and he'll report to Patriots mini-camp on Tuesday. Just a few days ago, Patriots coach Bill Belichick had to set the record straight about his feelings on Tebow.
The Patriots are the third team Tebow has been a part of in three years. After starting his NFL career with the Denver Broncos, he was traded to the New York Jets after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning. During this offseason, the Jets released Tebow and since then it seemed like Tebow's career in the NFL might be over.
But now, Tebow takes his talents (and the Wildcat?) to New England where he'll join Tom Brady on one of football's most potent offenses. What role Tebow will play in Boston — and whether Gronk will add Tebowing to his repertoire — remains to be seen. One thing's for sure, though. You need to circle October 20 on your calendar. That's when the Patriots head to New York to take on the Jets. You can be sure Tebow is going to get an earful from the Jets faithful.
More news as it develops!
