    This was my suggestion to Greg Bedard on Twitter:

    Jets release Tebow next year. BB signs him. LB/TE/FB....That's my prediction. Whachoo think?”

    To which he responded:

    "Wouldn't surprise me at all"

    He went on to defend it in several tweets.

    Basically my thinking is: 1)BB loves the kid. 2)The Jets have trashed his starting QB potential 3) No matter what the guy with two Phallic names (Woody Johnson) says they will cut him. 4) He's a great teammate 5)He's a great versatile football player 6) There will be no QB controversy in NE

    I'm not against it. Kid's a good football player with talent and heart. He'd be worth a look, but the only issue I would see is money. How much do you want to tie up in something like that when there will be other needs to focus on? The Tebow name comes with a premium attached to it.

    I see no place for him on this team.

    OTOH, if Colin Klein falls to a UDFA, or with an extra 7th round pick, I'm all for it.

    Not. Gonna. Happen.

    I like Tebs but he's not an experienced FB or LB and as a QB he's not useful here because our O is rightly designed around TFB. So why would BB waste a spot on the 53? Bedard & the OP are nuts. Sorry PATSNUTME.

    Tebow belongs in JAX

    I'll be honest. I don't see Tebow as being a fit for this team because of the media circus he brings with him. Tebow falls into the Terrell Owens/Chad Johnson category when it comes to that sort of thing. I disliked Tebow and his antics when he was in college and that hasn't changed.

    Both correct. Some other considerations:

    1. Tebow's pretty much been ruled out as a QB by every respected QB evaluator in the business. His mechanics just aren't there. So what to you bring him in as? Not as a 3rd string QB? As your #5 TE with no prior experience? As a FB? RB? He has no position.

    2. He's not PS eligible to work on developing him at a new position, and all the media circus and baggage that he brings makes that difficult.

    3. He comes with a relatively big contract for a guy who can't get on the field. It's a complicated cap situation, but IIRC I think his 2013 cap hit is something like $2M - not huge, but a non-trivial amount for a guy who probably won't see much playing time. Compare that with a late round/UDFA who might get on the PS and have time to develop without being under the microscope, and without all the baggage.

    The negatives far outweigh the positives IMHO. I've never been a Tebow fan, but trying to block out my bias, I still can't see it.

    I'll concur on the lack of any useful position for the Pats.

    He really should head down to Jax. They love him there and he'll help get rid of the big black tarp fan.

    Bottom line - he is a WINNER - will work anywhere he is given a shot - no matter what capacity.

    Perfect guy to take a flyer on to try to develop him. Great intangibles and a tough kid.

    He's a winner?? I disagree and so do most Jets fans and some Jets players..

    Sorry, but I'd rather spend the time on a guy who is willing to buy into the system. Not a guy who wants the system to conform around him. And that is what Tebow expects.

    Tim Tebow is the ultimate locker room cancer.

    He brings far too much media attention, something which BB doesn't like and he splits the locker room - some don't want him and others love him.

    No thank you!

    What opportunity has he gotten from the Jets? Do you want to talk college or the Broncos last year? WINNER!!! What demand(s) has he EVER made that a system conform to him? Never did it in FL. He will do what EVER is asked of him and ALWAYS has. He does NOT divide the locker room - the media does that FOR him. What waves has Tebow EVER made?

    If given the shot - he WOULD - not sure he would be good at it, but he would work HARD at it.

    A WINNER. Oh, OK then. Maybe TFB can pick up some tips from him.

    I was kidding. Was just riffing on the old chestnut from last year "Can he rush the passer?". You may not have been here then, but it was always hilarious - - especially in threads that weren't even regarding current players. I.E. a thread about getting a new radio announcer would have a post reply of "Yeah, but can he rush the passer?". Bada bing!

    Well, I humbly disagree with you and most Jets fans. Not surprised you are lock step with Jets fans though.

    Agree with everything you said. Also we dont have to worry about the media dividing our locker room because no one will be suggesting we bench Brady. The hate some people have for Tebow is borderline psychotic. He is the most standup guy I've ever seen. Look at all he's done for sick kids. But haters gone hate as they say.
