    Apparently John Clayton says Denver will trade Tebow to Pats if Manning signs with denver.

    TE/H-Back?

    Only reason for him, then I'd only give them a 7th round pick.

    Obviously a rumor perpetuated by the media by linking Tebow to McDaniels. Obvious connection to me.

    wow so many of these "experts" are stupid so we passed on tebow the year he was draft and now we are going to trade something for him so he can sit on the bench, tebow and be a virgin.

    I can pull random rumors out of my ass does that mean i can be an "expert"

    oh yeah i almost forgot

    can he rush the passer?

    Here's a kinda sorta source link. So basically Clayton is repeating rumors. Amazing how much mileage they're getting out of a pre-draft North End meal.

    Strictly value wise, he'd be a good value as H-Back/Fullback and 4th emergency quarterback for a 7th round pick. :D

    I don't think even John Elway hates him that much to trade him that low.

    For a low round pick, I wouldn't have a problem with it. He'd be a nice utility player on offense and good for the locker room. He's clutch, too.

    Ofcourse the biggest need on the Patriots is a QB since Brady, Hoyer, Mallet don' cut the mustard and we need Jesus and his 4 completions a game here to put us over the hump


    In other news, Patriots will also explore trading Daniel Graham since TE is another need:bricks:

    Oh, man. I'd so rather see Tebow in that H-back spot than, say, Hernandez (like we sort of attempted last year). Tebow would be flat out good at it too.

    AH = pass catcher (not rusher). Tebow = rusher (not passcatcher, eh, or thrower)

    Because he is a unique player and a focused competitor. The shortcomings in his game would be masked because he wouldn't be an every down player/passer.

    I'm not surprised given Bill's interest in him around draft time. McDaniels is also the guy that picked him. Given their familiarity, the transition to this offense shouldn't have as steep of a learning curve for Tebow as it would for others.

    I'd be for it if we're not sending back too much in return.

    I woiuld prefer to use TEs, and HBacks at TE and HBAck that try to turn a QB into one and pay a first round contract for it.

    So we're going to trade for a 4th string QB?

    Yeah, Tim "One Read and Throw it Out of Bounds" Tebow ought to fit in real good in the Pats offense.

    Beyond idiotic. Clayton is such a moron.

    Who says he'd be exclusively used as a TE/Hback?

    There is also the possibility that he'd be willing to restructure his contract to mitigate his impact on the payroll.

    Wasnt Tebow the QB that made Hernandez a star in Florida? Tebow has no quality TE in Denver, plus they run the ball a lot.

    I gave the OP 10 minutes to show a link that Clayton even breathed this.

    He has 4 more minutes.

    Then this thread disappears.
