This move is likely to break the internet. Tim Tebow is not going to make it as a quarterback in the NFL. He just doesn't have the ability, but if there is anyone that can find a way to use Tebow as a football player, it is Bill Belichick.

The move also makes sense because Josh McDaniels is with the Patriots, and he was the coach of the Denver Broncos when they reached for Tebow in the draft. It will be interesting to see where this ends up going.

If Tebow is going to be a quarterback, and keep in mind he has never been open to playing any other position, it will be interesting to see the depth chart behind Tom Brady. The Patriots still have Ryan Mallett on their roster. Some people thought he was the steal of the draft when they got him in the 4th round. Jommy thinks it was a wasted pick because, like Tebow, Mallett just isn't an NFL quarterback (but for different reasons).
