For Tim Tebow, it's a new team and a new season but the same drama when it comes to NFL analysts scrutinizing his every move – this time with the New England Patriots during training camp.
Much like with his former team, the New York Jets, speculation as to how exactly the Patriots will use the so-called "polarizing" Christian quarterback is rampant. Will Tebow make the team? Will he play tight end? Will he ever throw a pass? Will coach Bill Belichick address Tebow's huge fan base wisely, if at all?
Boston media has been all over "Tebow Watch 2013," including giving Bostonians a refresher "course" on what all the fuss is about in regards to the Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Florida and former Denver Broncos player. more >>
The Hands & Feet Project is partnering with the Tim Tebow Foundation to put on a "Run For Joy" 5K celebrity fun run in Orlando, Fla. on Sept. 6. The aim of the event is to raise money for the children of Haiti.
The Hands & Feet Project was created by Christian rock band Audio Adrenaline in the early 2000s after the overwhelming response to their song "Hands & Feet," which was based off of their own experiences doing missionary work.
Some of the confirmed guests for the run so far are Colton Dixon, For King And Country, and KJ-52 with more being announced soon. more >>
Reports have surfaced that former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback and current New England Patriots draftee, Tim Tebow, tried to break up a bar fight with former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was charged with murder last week.
On Tuesday, the Gainesville Sun released a Gainesville Police report of the bar fight in 2007. The report revealed that "Tebow, Hernandez and Shaun Young were at The Swamp restaurant and bar on April 28, 2007."
Hernandez, the report went on to say, refused to pay for drinks when presented with the bill. Tebow tried to calm him during the following dispute with manager Michael Taphorn, but the future tight end still boxed the manager in the ear outside the bar. more >>
Could the New England Patriots' decision to release Aaron Hernandez, who was arrested on murder charges on Wednesday, help Christian quarterback Tim Tebow's chances at getting on the field this season as a tight end?
Several sports writers seem to think it's a real possibility. The Patriots released 23-year-old Hernandez shortly after he was arrested. The team's offensive situation in this coming season is made even more uncertain by the fact that its star tight end, Rob Gronkowski, has undergone five surgeries in the last year, International Business Times reports, and it is unclear how his health issues will impact his effectiveness on the field.
"In three years as a pro, Tebow has never caught a pass," wrote IBT sports reporter Anthony Riccobono. "He does, however, seem to possess the tools to be a tight end. He has the size and athleticism necessary to play the position and was used by the New York Jets to block punts." more >>
The Tim Tebow Foundation received a $200,000 donation from the Denver Mattress Company, it was revealed on Thursday. The money will be directed to orphanage services worldwide.
"We feel fortunate and blessed to assist those in need and to make a positive impact in the world," said Dan Visser, president of the Denver Mattress Company.
NFL quarterback Tim Tebow commented: "I am passionately driven to make a difference in the lives of people who need it most and with the help of great people and amazing companies like Denver Mattress, we will make a difference." more >>
A poll of over 7,000 people has found that most believe popular Christian athlete Tim Tebow will be able to make the New England Patriots' 53-man roster and be on the team next season.
"It would be an interesting turnaround for Tebow," ESPN.com observed. "Just last week he was a player on the scrap heap that nobody wanted. Not even the talent-deprived New York Jets, who are rebuilding and need all the talent they can get, wanted nothing to do with Tebow on their roster. However, Tebow has a solid chance to make the 53-man roster of the Patriots, the reigning AFC East champs."
The online SportsNation poll, which as of Monday afternoon has over 7,800 votes, is still open and receiving votes. Sixty-eight percent of respondents so far have voted that they believe Tebow will make the roster, while 32 percent have said that he will be unable to do so. more >>
