I heard it from chris landry, an old nfl front office guy, now does mostly consulting. Urban has made a boatload of money coaching and media, tebow was a prime factor in his success, he could be signed and placed on the IL or the PUP list and then cut later, we'll see.If that is true, good for him.
If that's true then I'm happy for Tebow. He's a stand up guy and anybody in his shoes would want that pension for life too.I heard an interesting tidbit today, tebow is only 3 games away from being fully invested in his nfl pension. He and urban are very good friends, maybe this has a little to do with it.
Too bad most NFL teams don't use a full back anymore. I think he could be successful there...not sure about now though. Not playing for a few years probably has taken its toil.I hope the pension angle is true. Urban has an uphill rebuilding job to do. The last thing he really needs is an old, smallish, inexperienced TE when he has better options already on roster...
It depends what locker room you are talking about. He certainly divided the Jets locker room. There is a reason Greg McElroy got a NFL start in 2012, and became their #2 quarterback after trading multiple picks for Tebow. Rex Ryan never wanted him, and noone but the owners and Tebow fans wanted him in New York. There are very few on the Jets who speak highly of him. But ultimately he was booted because he sucked. Hell Cutler caused just as much hell in the locker room but was called back from retirement to start at quarterback for a team he never played forWith all respect, I'm not so sure about that. Wasn't it because his proselytizing caused problems in the pro locker rooms one of the reasons he didn't hang around? IMHO, this is a smoke screen to 1) sell more tickets, and 2) have someone bigger on the roster to take pressure off Sunshine.
Ultimately this maybe the god to honest truth. Rex Ryan tried to use him on special teams but he wouldn’t do it. Then Belichick gets him and him and Daboll tries to teach him how to play TE. But he wouldn’t do it.Tebow's pride is what kept him from doing this from the get-go. It was obvious by how slow, deliberate, and fundamentally flawed his throwing was, that he was not going to be a successful NFL quarterback.
Everyone who worships the guy always points to the 2011 WC game as proof that he belongs and is being black balled by the NFL. But they all fail to accept 3 truths about that one particular game.Let's see....
it's in John Elway's book.......you know....the John Elway who said coming out of Stanford when he was going to get drafted, "I want to play for a contender."
And it might ALL be true.
And it might also be someone wanting to sell books, too.
I'll concur with the musings about the completely irrational fans who practically worshipped the dude, though. That was unlike anything I've ever seen with one exception...involving many of those same people.
