Ever since being released by the Jets, the only two places that made sense for Tim Tebow were the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots.
Jacksonville because he’s from the area and that team desperately needs some excitement. New England because that’s what the Patriots do: they take players nobody wants and finds a way to use them somehow. I say somehow, because there’s no way he’d play QB for them. Not even as a backup.
Regarding the latter, we shall find out soon enough as the Patriots are on the verge of signing Tim Tebow, per Ed Werder of ESPN:
Just filed to ESPN: The Patriots are signing QB Tim Tebow and expect him to be in minicamp tomorrow

I’m sure Josh McDaniels’ fingerprints are all over this. He drafted Tebow in Denver, of course, in the first round and everyone thought he was crazy. He’s probably looking to prove people wrong somehow in New England.
