The adage that “no news is good news” probably doesn’t apply to Tim Tebow as he waits (and waits, and waits) to see if he still has a future as an NFL quarterback.

And now, more than a month after Tebow cleared waivers and became a free agent in late April, folks in his camp seem to finally be coming to the realization that this may be the end of the road for the beloved, if maligned, quarterback-slash-media-darling.

In an article in ESPN the Magazine, David Fleming writes that those close to Tebow are “privately admitting that his NFL run is probably over” — the first such statement to leak from Tebow’s inner circle, though it’s been widely assumed that the combination of Tebow’s inadequacy as a player and the media circus that follows him might make finding employment challenging.
The article also cites an NFC scout who seems to agree with that assessment of Tebow’s prospects.

“He’s not a quarterback,” the scout told Fleming. “When you look at his run two years ago, when you watch the tape and break it down, he wasn’t really doing anything that impressive. He’s a tough guy, a great leader, a great person. But he isn’t a good enough quarterback to have all the distractions that come with him.”

Many teams have been forthcoming about their lack of interest in (or need for) Tebow, so there’s a good reason for the lack of faith — both from scouts and Tebow’s buddies.

The Seahawks rather bluntly denied any interest in the former Florida Gator. Ditto for the Cleveland Browns. Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow in Denver, but according to one report, New England head coach Bill Belichick “hates” Tebow as a player. Oof.

Heck, even the Jacksonville Jaguars have publicly shot down any suggestions that they should bring in Tebow, who played his prep football at nearby Nease High School.

As for who might actually be interested? Back in April, Lions GM Martin Mayhew told a radio station to “never say never” with regard to Tebow — which is about the best news he’s apt to hear about his future right now (unless he wants to play for Ron Jaworski’s Arena League team).

It’s hard to believe Tebow has fallen so far so fast, and I’ve got to imagine he ends up on a roster as a quarterback somewhere. I mean, he’s got to be at least third-string material. There’s no way he’s worse than McLeod Bethel-Thompson or Scott Tolzien or Rusty Smith, right?

Actually, you know what, don’t answer that.

Buzzy Says I think this is just a rewrite from the last month But my source reported the Turn Down

    Here is a link to a story from USA today saying it is from someone in Tebow’s camp.

  2. tawk2 says:

    Looks like MSN needs to update their stories including the one above from USA Today from 4:44 pm today. It states in this story that this story recants what the other story said and said that Tebow is not giving up and has not been giving up! So tired of these media hounds most of the time writing untruths.

    Buzzy Says My source did not know anything about giving up either.

    If I were supreme being, when a person said something as stupid of Tebow as “he wasn’t really doing anything that impressive,” that person’s tongue would melt.

    Iv’e been watching football for over sixty years and never missed a Super Bowl . They weren’t as good as some of the playoff games . But they were games which i loved to watch . I think the Jets of 69″ where the worst team to win a S.B . the Bills and Vikings were the best teams to never win the S.B . Of course the QBS, there were a bunch of good ones . the best at the time were the ones with the talent around them .the Montana’s Young’s Warner and so on . Of all these quarterbacks poor dumb ole Terry Bradshaw was one of the most exciting to watch . made fun of by his critics . after wining four S.B Who had the last laugh . and now they are trying to rid of another exciting qb in Tim Tebow what a joke . isn’t this sport about getting excited about wacthing an exciting player or two .

    • Sage says:

      Well said. For many years I bought whatever “they” were saying about a given player.

      When they said this or that collegiate star couldn’t compete in the NFL, I invariably believed them, perhaps wrongly. I’m done listening to sports pundits now.

      Bradshaw sure as heck did have the last laugh. Yet even while he get’s a lot of respect today for his rings, I never hear his skill praised much. As a kid I didn’t see him play much, or pay close attention. But I’m assuming he was more effective than people gave credit for. There’s a huge difference between the Bradshaws and the Essiasons of the world.

      Random thought: I’ll bet the Harbaugh brothers win a lion’s share of future Super Bowls, because they’re wired more like Bradshaw than Boomer.

    Someone in Tebow’s Camp said he is finished in the NFL… who could that be… maybe Brandi & Co.?

    Buzzy Says : I dont think Brandi is in T2 Camp

    • Lynn says:

      Oh, I know that Brandi is not officially part of Tebow’s Camp. But all the tweets and buzz she generated about Tim’s best option being the A-11 league could easily enough have been picked up by ESPN and reported as “members of his camp privately admitting that his NFL run is probably over…” That is exactly what I tried to warn people about… there is no privacy on the internet and the Tebow fans throwing in the towel on the NFL is news and not helpful to the cause of Tim Tebow.

  6. Bob Segrett says:

    I’M a big fan of Tim’s but , there a few things that bothers me with Tim is the linebacker approach with all the weights . He needs to get rid of them and go light . Also the footwork which he has improved on , body weight which is 237 lbs that should be around 225 lbs and no more to have a good qb physique . best young quarterback in the nfl Andrew Luck . Why , because it’s between his ears . If you want to see one of the best qb’s to come into the league look for Gregg Cook cincy 1969 .
