The biggest joke that surrounded Tim Tebow’s one season with the Jets was the fact that they lined him up as a punt protector.
It looks like the Patriots may give Tebow the same job. They lined up in punt formations during Monday’s practice, per Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.
Tim Tebow lines up as personal protector on punt team … Rookie DE Michael Buchanan shows up with a few nice rushes/batted pass.

Tebow has thrown passes as a quarterback, caught some passes with the backs and receivers and has now lined up as a punt protector. The Pats are clearly trying to find a reason to keep him.
