New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was linked to rumors that he “hated” former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback/personal punt protector Tim Tebow, but the mystery man stepped up today to discredit any of those reports. Today, Belichick spoke with the media and commented on the situation.

“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent,” Belichick told former NFL Spin Zone writer and ESPN Boston’s Field Yates.  “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.  It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”

Yates used to work under Belichick with the Patriots, so it says something that “The Hoody” was willing to open up to him.

While this may not be the 100 percent truth, which nothing with Belichick ever is, you should definitely read in to these comments and consider them as legit as you can get. With Belichick, that is quite the accomplishment.
