I hate the Pats, but as a Tebow fan, I love this move for several reasons:
1) McD drafted him and knows him well
2) McD and Belichick will not be afraid to use Tebow in unconventional ways in all 3 facets of the game
3) Belichick will not let the media or the whole Tebow hype transform his locker room into a sideshow
4) Belichick and McD can probably convince Tebow his best shot to be a successful NFL player is at a position other than QB.
I'm not shocked this comes after news of Gronk's surgery. Tebow will likely see time at TE this season for the Pats if he's good enough.
BB knows Gronk has injury issues so he says, "Oh **** we need someone, let's take a QB and make him a TE".
It's more likely BB didn't like what he saw from Mike Kafka and decided to try someone else. I don't believe the Pats normally kept 3 QB's anyway, but they need someone for training camp and preseason games. It's going to be tough for Tebow to make the 53 man roster.
You're totally missing my point. Where did I say Tebow was brought in to replace Gronk? My point was, with Gronk injured, Bill knows he needs a TE, so why not add Tebow to the mix and see what he's got?
And as has been stated on several media sites, if you want a QB for training camp and preseason, you get someone who can throw, and can simulate other QBs to some extent in practice. You think Tebow is going to give the defense a sense of what it's like having Manning, Brees, Rodgers, etc. running plays?
I have no idea what they're going to do with Tebow. But I can guarantee they didn't bring him in to be a 3rd QB as there are much better options out there to fill that role.
