New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick suggested Friday before the Patriots opening practice of training camp that Tim Tebow could be used at other positions besides just quarterback.
“I think that we’ll use Tim wherever we feel like he’s best for the team and I know that’s what he’s committed to doing as well, whatever that is,” said Belichick.
Asked what he’s likes most about Tebow, Belichick said, “He’s got a great work ethic, great.”
According to The Boston Globe, Tebow took snaps as a QB during team drills, and caught three passes, with no drops, in an individual drill. He threw two interceptions in 11-on-11 drills. Picked off by safety Nate Ebner and defensive end Chandler Jones.
Asked what he thought of his former Florida teammate, Aaron Hernandez, being charged with murder, Tebow said it’s “heartbreaking.”
“Well, it was heartbreaking and sad and we’ve been advised not to comment on an ongoing legal investigation,” Tebow, the former Jets backup quarterback, said Friday after his first training camp practice with the Patriots. “So, I’m not going to comment further. But it’s just heartbreaking and sad and all my thoughts and prayers go out to the families involved.”
