You might not remember Steve Clarkson by name, but he’s the guy who worked with Tim Tebow earlier this year in an attempt to ‘fix’ his throwing motion and to improve his overall quarterback performance.
Clarkson suggested that Tebow was ‘fixed’, a sentiment the New England Patriots clearly disagreed with.
Either way, Clarkson and Tebow do have a pretty tight relationship, so maybe Tebow will take the advice of his ‘guru’ who suggested Tebow continue his playing career in the Canadian Football League – a nice way of suggesting that Tebow isn’t going to find a job in the NFL right now.
Per USA Today:
“It’s time now to maybe just reconsider a different path to his ultimate dream. Tim might want to look to the CFL because he may have run out of options in the NFL,” Clarkson told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. “Sitting is not an option for Tim. He’s ultra-competitive. He needs to stick to his strength, which is being in a competitive environment.
“Anyone who wants to work on their craft the way Tim does, he just needs to give himself a couple of days and really decide, ‘Is this what I want to do?’ Clearly, football is still in his blood.”
If Tebow wanted to play in the CFL, it wouldn’t be too difficult considering the Montreal Alouettes own Tebow’s rights.
