No, Bill Belichick does not hate Tim Tebow
If Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wanted to bring in former Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow, he probably already would have. Tebow has been on the market since New York released the pop culture icon in late April.
Yahoo! Sports recently ran a story that claimed Belichick disliked Tebow as a player and that there was “no chance” of the 25-year-old landing in Foxboro. Belichick firmly dismissed the Yahoo! report Thursday.
“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent. Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,” Belichick told ESPN. “It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”
Much has been made about Tebow possibly signing with the Patriots considering current New England offensive coordinator and former Denver head coach Josh McDaniels made the decision to draft Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft (No. 25 overall).
