ESPN Monday Night Football Analyst and former NFL head coach Jon Gruden made an appearance in Ocala, Florida at the Gateway Bank’s Friday tailgate event.
During Gruden’s speech, he stated that he believes Tom Tebow can be a successful NFL quarterback in the right offense.
“If you’re going to have Tebow as a quarterback, it’s got to be a full-court press to let him be the kind of quarterback he is. Let’s quit trying to change the way he plays the position,” Gruden said, via Ocala.com.
The problem is that no team wants to tailor their offense for Tebow. They would rather have him change his throwing mechanics.
I wonder if Gruden would sign Tebow if he was coaching in the NFL right now.
