In response to mia76's comment:
Report is he told his agents to tell any inquiring team that he will not consider anything but QB position. So ... CFL, Arena, NFL Europe ... oh yeah that one folded.
I do think BB would be willing to look at him at another position but mostly just to really mess with the Jets. Could you see Pats with Tebow on the bench playing at the Jets, with the Jets on offense, and the chant for Tebow, Tebow starts up. NOW that would be priceless!!! And in NY with those fans if Mark or Geno were struggling it could happen!
No way an NFL GM or coach wants Tebow as a back-up QB - the circus both in Denver and in NY is just not worth it no matter how bad your team is. Really believe half of the reason Denver went all out to get Payton was because he was the only QB available that would allow them to dump Tebow without a huge backlash from their fans.
I believe Tebow would re-think that if BB called and offered to have him come in. BB and Josh are hands down the 2 who could get the best out of him. I could well imagine Tebow being used in such a way as to NOT be the QB but, in the back of every team defending, they have to PLAY him as if he could. Imagine Tebow lined up as H back and gets the Brady handoff. He turns, throws back to Brady and then runs a pattern. He's a triple threat now. He could pass downfield. He could throw back to Brady. He could run downfield. He could block and trust me, BB loves good blockers.
If I were Tebow I'd just want to win. He has his best shot in NE and like your above post suggests, woldn't it just be priceless to see him burn the Jets? If......if Gronk's health is a problem then having Tebow and Hernandez would be pretty darn good.
In the red zone, we'd have perhaps Tebow leading the way for newly aquired Blount? Pretty hard core right there.
Do we NEED Tebow? Probably not.
Could he contribute? That's up to BB. I say he can. His attitude alone is what you want in a player and by accounts I've read today, the Jets players were starting to really warm to Tebow and the Jets didn't want that.
