Urban Meyer wouldn’t talk about his former player at the University of Florida, Aaron Hernandez, in the wake of his legal troubles. As more and more stories about Hernandez comes out, including a story that Tim Tebow broke up a fight in college, Meyer avoided that topic.

“I’m not going to talk about that,” Meyer said.

But he does have one polarizing player he will talk about, Tim Tebow.

He was asked whether he thinks his former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Tim Tebow can help fill the void, created by Hernandez, on the Patriots roster by playing tight end.

“I don’t doubt Tim can do anything,” Meyer said, via Guy Cipriano of the News-Herald. “If you are asking me, that’s all speculation. He’s a good athlete, incredible competitor. To play NFL tight end now. . . . There’s only a few of them that can do that.”

At 6-foot-3 and 245 pounds, Tebow has the size to be able to play tight end. Tebow might be a little undersized for tight end at 6-foot-3 but the player he is replacing, Hernandez, is only 6-foot-1.

Otherwise Tebow has experience as punt protector.

    Tebow played punt protection beautifully, and I am sure that Olivier Vernon feels the same. I can only hope to see someone as untested as him starting this season at TE.
