With all of the uncertainty surrounding the top two tight ends on the New England Patriots roster, there is a real question that we have to ask ourselves. Could Tim Tebow start at tight end for the season-opener against the Buffalo Bills?
As crazy as it might sound, there could be a legitimate chance of this actually happening.
Rob Gronkowski is recovering from a flurry of surgeries this offseason that have left his status for the start of the season in jeopardy, while Aaron Hernandez is in the middle of a sticky murder investigation and he could soon be arrested.
That leaves the likes of Jake Ballar, Daniel Fells and Michael Hoomanawanui at the top of the depth chart. While each of these players could shine if they are given the opportunity, why not give Tebow a shot?
Since he entered the league, people have been saying that tight end or h-back could be his best position.
We know that the Patriots have said that Tebow will strictly be a quarterback, but this could be the perfect opportunity for him to step up, help his team out and switch positions with an opportunity to succeed. For the Patriots, it would give them the opportunity to change Tebow’s position without getting backlash from his cult-like fan base.
After all, all they want is for Tebow to get playing time and to start. This could be his chance.
What do you think, FanSiders? Should the Patriots give Tebow a shot at tight end or should they hope Gronkowski is healthy and Hernandez stays away from prison?
