New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he loved Tim Tebow as a person and was rooting for him to make the team.
“I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team,” Kraft said on CBS’s This Morning on Tuesday. “When he came in, he came in as the third quarterback and we were all rooting for him. Life takes funny turns, so no one knows what’s going to happen in the future, but whatever he does I know he’s going to be a great success off the field and I’m rooting for him to get his opportunity on the field as well.”
Kraft said the Patriots have only carried two quarterbacks and, “when cut-down time comes, you need those last three or four positions for depth, and we happen to have, I think, the finest quarterback in the history of the game, and he’s not going off the field except by injury. We have a great second-string quarterback.”
