A day after being released by the New England Patriots, there are multiple teams around the National Football League that are currently kicking the tires on Tim Tebow.
Pro Football Central indicated earlier today that the Buffalo Bills haven’t completely closed the door on Tebow as an option…
According to multiple sources the Buffalo Bills have not “completely closed the door” on signing free agent QB Tim Tebow. Tebow released by New England, would provide an excellent insight to his former team which also is the Bills week 1 opponent.
The interesting dynamic here is that Tebow has a working knowledge of the Patriots offense and might be able to act like a spy. We saw a similar situation arise when the Green Bay Packers added former San Francisco 49ers’ backup Scott Tolzien to their practice squad this morning.
Various sources have indicated to Pro Football Central that EJ Manuel will start Week 1 against the Patriots. While this may hinder Tebow’s chances of catching on with the AFC East team, Buffalo is still in need of help at back-up quarterback with Kevin Kolb out for the season. It released Matt Leinart on Saturday.
Other teams said to be at least mildly interested in Tebow are the Green Bay Packers, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams. It’s not known whether they are just kicking the tires on the possibility. As of now, Buffalo seems like the most logical fit.
