After attempting a measly eight passes and 32 runs in the swamps of Jersey, the 25-year-old Tebow was clipped by the New York Jets on April 29.
Now unemployed, many insiders predicted Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels would lure the 2007 Heisman Trophy earner to Foxborough as a free agent.
“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent. Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,” said Belichick, 61, a three-time NFL Coach of the Year. “It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”
While the mastermind behind “Spygate” refused to say if New England would consider inking the embattled chucker, Belichick clearly doesn’t “hate” the 6-foot-3, 235 pound Tebow as a player.
Although never to be confused with Johnny Unitas, the consistently successful Tebow is a proven winner on both the collegiate and professional levels.
Hence, an accomplished man like Belichick would certainly respect a virgin strictly focused on football.
Like all athletes, Tebow “has strengths and weaknesses.”
“Regardless of that,” Tim Tebow can make a solid NFL employee if given a legitimate opportunity.by
