The New England Patriots are set to sign quarterback Tim Tebow. The Patriots had nothing to say on the signing but according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Tebow is set to be at Patriots mini-camp Tuesday, and as a quarterback. Many wondered why the Patriots, who have future legend Tom Brady entrenched as QB, would take a chance on the former Jet QB who couldn’t beat out a mediocre New Jersey QB list. Bill Belichick recently said he likes Tebow, despite news reports to the contrary. To prove it, Bill’s bringing him into Patriots camp. Here are 7 reasons why this signing makes sense for the Patriots and why it will work.
1. Tebow fits the Patriots mold.
You don’t have to run a 4.3 or do sack dances to be a Belichick guy. All you have to do is be smart, versatile, dedicated and love the game. Tebow is all that and more. In Belichick’s own words “He’s a good runner, strong runner, very strong, good thrower, mobile in the pocket, smart player, can do a lot of different things.” (as reported in the New York Daily News).
