The New England Patriots signed embattled chucker Tim Tebow to a two-year contract worth $1.36 million on Monday.
While “Spygate’s” mastermind refused to reveal what position the 2007 Heisman Trophy earner will play, Belichick praised Tebow’s diligence and skills.
“What position? We’re going to do what’s best for the football team,” said Belichick, 61, a three-time NFL Coach of the Year. “Tim’s a talented player that’s smart and works hard. We’ll see how it goes.”
Removed from a 12-4 season in the AFC East, New England has made risky acquisitions in the past with mixed results.
Considering New England can axe the polarizing southpaw whenever without any salary cap implications, the Patriots can’t be hurt by obtaining Tebow.
However, collecting more dust on his left arm, Tim Tebow didn’t “do what’s best for” Tim Tebow by relocating to Foxborough as a free agent.by
