In response to russgriswold's comment:
So, a guy that can't throw as a QB being given a spot in camp as a QB is not a favor when he was unemployed and about ready to go up to Canada to tryout for a CFL club?
It's completely a favor and one last chance because no other NFL team was going to touch him, dude.
It was reported that NE was sort of investigating how the media was following him as he worked out at OSU.
That should tell you another reasoon why teams didn't want to take him on after the circus season with the Jets.
It was totally a favor to get him a paycheck this summer instead of not having a paycheck.
That's like giving a spot to an RB in camp who has one leg. It doesn't make sense. Tebow would have had to have shown massive improvement in throwing, and 4 years in, you just knew it wasn't going to happen.
The Tim Tebow drama in the NFL is now officially over.
So, BB kept Tim on the roster until final cut day as a favor? Russ, I don't agree with you. You don't cut a guy on final cut day if you were intent on doing him a favor. They were trying to work him into a slot, plain and simple. Now, argue some more and I will disengage for the sake of everybody. Any player will tell you that the absolute WORST time to be cut is on FINAL CUT DAY both personally and strategicaly for your carreer. FACT. Even yesterday would have been 100-times better bfore final cut day. That is proof of a favor, this was proof of, "We really wanted to keep him."
