With the New England Patriots suffering from a lot of uncertainty at the tight end position, there was some speculation that the team could give third-string quarterback Tim Tebow the old college try at tight end. However, the latest report of Boston seems to shut the door on that idea and confirms early reports from the Patriots beat that stated Tebow would be a quarterback only.
Many believe that Tebow would be a serviceable tight end and that it would be his best chance of success in the NFL, but ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss said on SportsCenter that it would be a surprise if the move happened.
We all know about the murder investigation that involves Aaron Hernandez and the string of surgeries that leaves Rob Gronkowski’s status for the season opener in question, so who could open the season as the team’s top tight end option if both men are unavailable?
Jake Ballard, Daniel Fells and Michael Hoomanawanui would be the team’s options.
Thankfully for the Patriots, they are stacked at the position, so despite potentially losing their top two players they can move forward with solid options.
Who would have guessed that the media circus with the Patriots would surround the tight end position and not Tim Tebow after his signing? It’s just how the crazy world we call the NFL works.
