The possibilities mentioned for Tim Tebow on these pages include the Canadian football league or the Chicago Bears (see Kevin Scholla’s argument here), but how about the New England Patriots? Bill Belichick did not rule out the possibility of bringing Tebow back during the season, as organizations sometimes do for players who they cut after the preseason.
Sports Illustrated is reporting that on Monday Belichick declined to rule out the possibility of bringing Tebow back, particularly if one of his two current quarterbacks gets injured. Then again, Belichick declining to comment on something is not necessarily news.
The coach is known for not divulging much in his league-mandated injury reports, or giving out any other information that could possibly tell an opponent anything about the Patriots’ strategy.
Tebow went only 11 for 30 passing in the preseason, and his chances to sneak on the roster as a player who could also play tight end may have taken a hit when the Patriots realized Rob Gronkowski would be able to suit up Sunday.
