Robert Kraft: Tim Tebow is a “winner”

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft gave his thoughts on his team signing quarterback Tim Tebow, via ESPNBoston.com.

“If you want to win in this league, you need quality depth management, in the age of the salary cap. Whenever you can get a competitive, first-grade person to join your team, you never know what happens. But for me personally, having Tim Tebow on this team, he’s someone who believes in spirituality, he’s very competitive and works hard, and has a great attitude, and he’s a winner. So having him as part of our franchise is great, but he has to compete just like anyone else. We’re blessed to have a lot of people like that, but the fact that spirituality is very important to him is very appealing to me.”

Kraft was asked if he’s worried about the media circus that follows Tebow.

“I’m just excited that you’re all back, I’m excited football is back. I really have missed it. It’s going to be tough getting to the end of July after tomorrow. I’m just really excited for this season and excited about the team we’re building.”

Kraft was asked what impresses him about Tebow.

“I think he’s hard-working and he’s very cooperative. I don’t think there’s any coach who wouldn’t like to have a team full of people like he is. So like Brady, who goes out there and works hard, or Vince Wilfork or Jerod Mayo. They come in, they work hard, they prepare hard and they’re all business. You can’t get enough people like that on your team, so we’re honored that he’s with us.”

    Dear Mr. Robert Kraft: SIR, you just said what I have been saying for the past 3 months: Tebow is a winner, Tebow KNOWS how to win. The confidence level of the O.Line perks up when they know Tebow is carrying the ball (He doesn’t fumble) AND best of all, Tim is helping men, women & children all over this world via http://www.timtebowfoundation.org . I tell the naysayers to go to Tim’s website; and if that doesn’t touch you–you’re a corpse.
    I don’t often give $$$ to charity but I give to Tim’s foundation. I don’t often pray for a pro athlete but wifey & I and out friends have been praying our butts off that Tim would land somewhere he is appreciated, coached, and given a chance. Two plays a game w/ Jets was a joke! So God bless you Mr. Kraft & your fine organization.
    Thank you, sir.

    Timmy is a positive team player. Even if he doesn’t play, he is still a leader and practices what he preaches. He brings positive energy wherever he goes to those that accept it. He never got a chance to be on any first team in the NFL. He was asked to go “in” off the bench mid-season for the Broncos, led them out of a losing season, to the 2nd round of the playoffs and then whooooooooosh, he is never given a chance to start again. Maybe he can’t throw but he has NEVER got a chance to work with the 1st team offense in any pre-season situation in an attempt to have timing w/ 1st team receivers. What current back up QB has a better win/loss ratio than Timmy ?
