Robert Kraft says he's "rooting" for Tim Tebow to make team
Prior to tonight's Patriot's Premiere at Gillette Stadium, owner Robert Kraft spoke with the media and revealed he was "rooting for" Tim Tebow to make the team. He also provided a response to the NFLPA's grievance on behalf of Aaron Hernandez seeking workout bonus money.
First, let's get to Tebow, who is fighting to make the 53-man roster. Kraft is clearly a fan.
''Anyone who's met him, he's a very special young man. I'm rooting for him big-time. He's been a real joy to have around here. I see why he has such a strong national following. He's just a great, great young man,'' Kraft said. ''We're also privileged to have Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. I like our position. If you look around the league . . . I just give thanks for the position we're in.''
Even though Tebow hasn't exactly lit it up on the field, did Kraft still believe he would make the final cut?
''I'm rooting for him. I'm in his corner,'' Kraft said. ''I have the privilege of letting Bill make that decision. He's got a pretty good record doing that.''
