Tim Tebow to Sign With the New England Patriots

Otto Greule Jr

Ed Werder of ESPN reports the division rival Patriots have signed former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.

Sounds good to me. What are the Patriots going to do? Are they going to change his position? Good luck with that. Converting a quarterback to a new position almost never works. It is too difficult to learn basic fundamentals in most cases on the fly to be able to compete on the highest level against players who have played a position their entire life. I hope the distraction is worth that kind of a longshot.

Are the Pats going to run Wildcat packages with Tebow? Even better. When the Patriots are putting the ball into Tebow's hands instead of Tom Brady's, that is a loss for them every time.
