Speculation is swirling: Jaguars? Dolphins? Packers? Bills? Mystery team?
This almost reminds me of the week before the 2010 NFL Draft, when we were wondering which team would take Tebow.
Here's a really good take from Peter King, affirming a few things I strongly agree with:
(1) Tebow can be and should be an essential contributor to a winning football team.
(2) That doesn't necessarily mean Tebow would start full-time at QB.
(3) The right fit for Tebow is with a head coach secure in his position and innovative in his schemes.
What is the ideal outcome here? That Tebow is a starting QB in the NFL? That he makes tangible contributions to a winning team? That his team wins a Super Bowl? There are a lot of paths to success -- I know Tebow wants to be a starting QB in the league, and he has shown he can be successful in that role. He has earned the chance to compete, and he has shown a limitless capacity to work hard and learn.
I also know he wants to contribute however he can, and when he is finally on a team that wants him (unlike the Broncos), making that contribution in whatever way the coach can dream up (and hopefully the coach is plenty creative in doing it) will be a satisfying next chapter in Tebow's NFL career.
BTW, here's another read: The Redskins have been on zero radars and just forked over a trove of draft picks to position themselves to draft Robert Griffin III as their QB of the present and future, but in the Washington Post, I laid out the case for why trading for Tebow makes sense for D.C.
