    Call me crazy, or maybe I just have a soft spot for him, but I think that BB could find a way to use him. Not at QB, but somewhere. He is a big talented athlete who has a great work ethic and is a good guy from all accounts. I wouldn't be opposed to taking him on and seeing if he can make the team.

    I couldn't be happier. Love Tebow. One of the best news to come in a long time. Only bright spot of a stinking slimey organization. Get that dreaded uniform off now Tim!!! And go on a sabbatical, journey, cleansing...whatever it is you do...to rid yourself of that tainting stench.

    PS: And no I actually DO NOT want him on the Pats team. I think he should keep looking for a back up job to a scrub starter that one day he can grab.

    I agree. Find a way to maximize his skills on special teams and give the other team something to think about by using him is a FB set on certain plays. There would be no media circus here because the Patriots are not an embarrassing soap opera like the Jets. Good kid, good work ethic and he wouldn't be a distraction in a any way. Hope BB does take a look at him.

    Is he interested in playing any other position?

    BTW, the 2 players the Broncos drafted with the picks the Jets gave them for Tebow are still with the team, and one was a significant contributor as a rookie.

    I'd be surprised if BB wants to create the distraction in camp, for the other players and for the coaching staff. There's overhead to signing someone and bringing him to camp. Every player has to be attended to, coached up, evaluated, given reps, etc. There are limited resources.

    I think he could catch on as a RB or Special Team'er IF he chooses to... but everything I've read says he will play QB and only QB and he's not cutting it in the NFL as a QB.

    Too bad, I've been rooting for him because I think he's a good athlete and seems to be a fine young man, I like to see good people who give 110% succeed.

    You're talking about someone who has brought in Corey Dillon, Randy Moss, OchoCinco, Albert Haynesworth and, last year, a guy pending trial in Nebraska.

    BB isn't afraid of distractions. He's probably asking around for Dzokhar Tsarnaev's speed in the 40 right now.

    Haynesworth? Ochocinco? To a lesser extent, Corey Dillon?

    Since when has BB ever been afraid of distractions?

    Like Tebow, really hope he catches on somewhere and has success unless he's playing the pats. But, I don't think he's worth the media circus he brings with him(not saying it's his fault they follow his every move). Hopefully Jags give him a chance.

    Albert Breer on NFL just said that if Tebow wants to play QB, he's probably going to have to go "prove it" in the CFL.

    Otherwise, probably New England, where they'll find a place for him.

    None if which created a media circus the way Tebow would. I hope the Jags sign him.

    Its funny that people think Bill is worried about a "media circus"

    Here's the deal as far as I can tell. Bill makes the best moves he can for the good of the team, and he does not care what the media or we say or think about any one player or another.

    If the thinks Tim Tebow would help the patriots more than option B, Tebow will be a patriot.

    I think this is really the key here, and to Tebow in the NFL. If he's on a team with a fringy-starting QB, then fans can clamor for Tebow because it's not clear that Tebow wouldn't be better. But nobody - NOBODY - on planet earth, probably including Tebow and his mother, thinks he's better than Tom Brady. So there would be no clamoring for him at ALL here in NE to start over Brady.

    A place like New England is where he could possibly find a fit as a backup QB (probably 3rd stringer) that can also do some other things to help the team.

    Not saying they should sign him, but this is the kind of place where a Tebow could actually work out.

    I think Tebow's only shot at staying in the NFL this season is as a backup to one of those teams who has a "running QB", like Carolina, Seattle, Buffalo, or Washington. Carolina would be the best place for him, and I've thought that for a while. Amazing that with some of the crap that passes for QB play in the NFL this kid can't at least get a back up job.

    Its quite a fall - From TEBOW MANIA - to probably being out of the league all in about 18 months

    Jets had granted Tim Tebow permission this off-season to seek a trade. More than one team asked if were willing to play TE, but he was not.

    The jEST invited the media circus because they are an attention whore organization.

    Tebow has virtually no chance to play QB in NE and that is understood by everyone.

    Agreed. Consider what happened with him in Denver. I know their D and K played huge roles in their success, but they started out 1-4 and ended up making the playoffs, and Tebow had a very good game against Pittsburgh in the playoffs and they won in a major upset.

    I mean, wow. That's a pretty nice little run for Tebow and the Broncos. So Peyton returns, signs with Denver, Tebow gets traded to the awful joke of a franchise that is the Jets, and he may never be heard from again.

    Crazy.
