Belichick reportedly ‘hates’ Tebow

Published On May 10, 2013 | By Jill Saftel

Sure, Tim Tebow is up for grabs, but don’t expect Bill Belichick to go reaching for him any time soon…or ever. Turns out, Belichick and his short-sleeve hoodies aren’t a fan of Tebow or Tebowmania.

People either love or hate Tebow, and it looks like Belichick is on the latter end of that spectrum. Mike Silver of Yahoo! reported that a source told him there’s no way the Patriots sign Tebow, and that Belichick actually “hates” Tebow as a player.

Silver says there’s no chance Tebow and his media parade make their way to Foxboro, and he’s probably right. I don’t see Belichick ever wanting to put up with everything that comes with Tebow, never mind the fact that Tebow probably doesn’t want to end up in a situation like he did with the Jets – not playing.

It’s not as if the Patriots are really looking for a starting quarterback. They have that one guy who’s pretty good…oh, right, his name’s Tom Brady. Many have speculated a position switch might be in order for Tebow, but I also don’t see  that happening in New England.

Silver also reported his source said there’s no way the Patriots would use Tebow in “change-of-pace” scenarios, requiring Brady to come off the field.

Guess Tebow and his “circus” will have to look elsewhere.
