Report: Would be a “surprise” if Patriots move Tim Tebow to tight end

According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com via Rotoworld.com, it would be a “surprise” if the Patriots end up moving Tim Tebow to tight end.

Per Reiss, the Pats have “made it pretty clear” Tebow is in Foxboro to compete for third-string quarterback duties. There are no imminent plans for a position change, as New England has already stockpiled its offseason roster with tight ends behind Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. The other TEs are Jake Ballard, Daniel Fells, Michael Hoomanawanui, Zach Sudfeld, and Brandon Ford.

It certainly wouldn’t hurt the Pats to at least see what Tebow can do at tight end.

    I’d be excited to see Tim Tebow play the position Aaron Hernandez played last season; He’d line up as a wide out, he’d line up as a slot receiver, he’d line up as t.e. and do an end around, he’ d line up as full back / u back and take the hand-off.
    i was hoping it would be like the Florida Gator days with Tebow handing off to Hernandez as a read/option.
    It looks bad for the lad. God bless Mr. Hernandez and LORD have Tebow do something with his talent; the coaches need to design 1/2 dozen Tebow run/pass option plays or Tebow fullback or Tebow tight end. WOW I’m excited.!!!
