As soon as the reports surfaced that free agent quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to sign with the New England Patriots, fans and writers were taking to the Internet to contemplate whether or not there would be a position change in Tebow’s future. Well, think no further. It didn’t take long for a report to surface about the status of where Tebow will fit in with the Patriots. For now, there is no position change and he will remain a quarterback.
There has often been a link between Tebow and the Patriots because New England’s offensive coordinator is Josh McDaniels, the man who drafted Tebow in the first-round of the 2010 NFL Draft. McDaniels is also probably one of the only coaches that still believes in Tebow as a quarterback.
Under McDaniels, Tebow had the most successful season of his career, which included a playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers were he threw for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions.
I’m not much of a believer, but if there is one man who can maximize Tebow’s skill set it is McDaniels. Of course, Tebow is a versatile player and Bill Belichick knows how to get the best out of his players, so it won’t be surprising to see Tebow lining up as a quarterback or H-back. The likelihood is that he will probably line up at both spots throughout the season if he sticks to the roster, but his official position will be as a signal-caller.
