TT really should just go ahead and go to the CFL. He's not going to get a chance to play QB in the NFL. Maybe, if he goes up there and has great success an NFL team may reconsider bringing him in as a QB.

Yes the CFL (regular season opening on June 27) or the area league (maybe next year because the season is going on now I think).

I don't think it's stubbornness. I think it's shrewd -- TE is a difficult position to play.

I think he'll finally get the development he needs now. He needs an offseason with a team where there's no "package." He just works on the offense as a backup.

Good point. Tebow seems to be the living embodiment of this principle.

Bet he ends up with the Pats. McDaniels is there plus Belicheat was rumored to want him in that draft anyways. Brady isn't going to fold like Sanchez, and there won't be any calls for him to start. So McD/Beli can work on him reading defenses for a couple of years while getting him into games with some special packages for him.

Man...I'd take him back here at other positions in second, but he just doesn't want to do that. Good luck Tim.

He didn't perform well for the Jets. Tim has great qualities but he self admittedly has a higher purpose than football. That's fine and dandy but there are millions of kids with the same dream always on your tail. The players that rise to the top put football first.

Either that or he's just too stubborn to realize he should play another position.

TE is pretty easy relative to QB. What team is going to sign a QB,even as a back up,who can't throw.
What he needs to do is go to the cfl,& hope he gets an opportunity there.

Just kidding, but seriously, I don't get why he gets no credit at all for a terrific season. People act like he's never accomplished anything in the NFL. False.

Then you may think he would make it as an NFL TE. I don't. There's quite a few physical beasts, with more height, waiting to play. And those guys have run routes and caught the ball before, and blocked before.

CFL is even more passing-oriented. It's not an easy answer. He needs one or more seasons as a pure backup.

Very unlikely to get that season as a pure backup on a 53-man roster.

Yeah. He was terrible playing for the jets. There are many plays to choose from.

I was a HUGE Tebow supporter when he was here and find it hard not to pull for the guy in general, but this is my feeling as well.

2 teams have seen the goods first-hand and both have decided he's not part of their future (and 30 other teams don't seem to be jumping into the mix).

His work ethic and athleticism are top-notch, I don't know what the learning curve specifically is, but I still think he needs to switch to a Chris Cooley "lite" type role (H-back, TE, special packages RB, special teams).

Who brings him in? He can't throw,so he's going to have trouble being viable back up for any team out there.
If tebow is dead set against switching positions,it's over for him.

Actually, that would be saving them from Muslim Fundamentalism. Running rampant over there right now. That said, I have a hard time believing Tim would play in Canada. Not enough of a pulpit for the message. If someone like the Patsies don't come calling, I'm betting he hangs it up and gets on with his ministry work and his life. Good luck to him and I wish nothing but happiness and continued success for the young man. He brought us a lot of enjoyment, just glad the circus left town.

Quarterback is a more difficult position to play by roughly 10,000%. Especially when you can't throw or read defenses, which means he doesn't have the physical gifts necessary to play the position.

He has the physical gifts to play TE. That he won't tells me all I need to know about how dedicated he is to being an NFL player.

Goodbye, Timmeh. Enjoy your ministry.

I reckon this is a crock of ****.

When your heart is set on a position where you've had success at a position, why is doing everything you can to succeed at that position a negative trait?

I've long thought two things about Tebow. 1) He's not the brightest star in the sky. He's not DUMB, but never came across as an intellectual and 2) football isn't his number one priority (and that's OK.) If religion and spreading his message is the most important thing for him, and he uses football as a vehicle to do that, then fine. Unfortunately for him, it doesn't look like he'll get the chance to do that anymore.

To me, his mechanics and all that aren't really his problem. In fact, I'd argue that all the tinkering with his mechanics has made him into a ****tier passer. He wasn't THIS bad at Fla. It's that he can't read an NFL defense to save his life and seems to forget the plays as soon as he calls them. How often did he drop back only to panic and look around without actually seeing much? For all the bluster we hear about his so-called work ethic, I just can't imagine it involves spending a ton of time in the film room. And if it does, he probably doesn't comprehend what he's looking at.
