Contrary to reports the Patriots signed Tim Tebow to possibly play fullback, tight end, or on special teams, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the organization signed him to backup franchise quarterback Tom Brady.
The Patriots struggled in short yardage situations against the Baltimore Ravens last year in the AFC Championship game, and Tebow will likely be used on short yardage situations.
Patriots did not sign Tim Tebow to play RB nor TE. They signed him to play QB. Backup QB. Tom Brady will not lose a play.
