Tebow as a Pat?
Anything involving Tim Tebow is a hot-button issue, so we shouldn’t be surprised this registered as one of Boston.com’s most-read stories of 2012. Speculation swirled in March, right before the Denver Broncos signed free agent Peyton Manning, that the displaced Tebow (Denver's starter in 2011) could be traded here. That Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who drafted Tebow in 2010, was on the Patriots’ staff only added fuel to the fire. Eventually Tebow headed east, but instead was traded to the New York Jets.
