The Tim Tebow Patriots deal will land Tim Tebow as a quarterback for two years again.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Tim Tebow signed with the New England Patriots yesterday, but it was widely assumed the Patriots wouldn’t make Tim Tebow a quarterback.
When he was with the Broncos in 2011, Tim Tebow had a 7-4 record in 11 regular-season starts, completing 46.5 percent of his passes and rushing for 660 yards. During his time at the Jets, Tim Tebow ran for only 102 yards on 32 attempts last season, and one time a quick pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez doinked off Tebow’s helmet.
When you do a starting quarterback comparison with Tim Tebow here is how he ranked with the Denver Broncos: QB record: 7-4 (11th), completion percentage: 46.5% (34th, worst), interception percentage: 2.2% (9th), yards per completion: 13.7 (3rd), yards per game: 123.5 (35th), QBR: 72.9 (28th), sacks taken: 33 (12th), sacks percentage when attempting a pass: 10.9% (34th, worst), comebacks led in the 4th quarter: 5 (3rd) and game winning drives: 6 (tied for 2nd).
While statistics show Tim Tebow to be an average-to-below-average NFL quarterback, he was supposedly a fantastic leader with the Broncos, with made a decent turnaround during the season he was with them.
When the Patriots signed Tim Tebow it was widely assumed by experts they’d ask him to play as a hybrid fullback/tight end; otherwise known as an H-back. But when Tim Tebow joins the Patriots’ mandatory minicamp he will work out as a quarterback, which would make him the third-string quarterback behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett. The terms of the Tim Tebow Patriots contract were not disclosed, so it’s uncertain exactly how the Patriots will use Tim Tebow, although it’s claimed he’s not guaranteed any money.
As the Patriots sign Tim Tebow, do you think they should use Tim Tebow as a quarterback?
