How will Patriots use Tim Tebow? Bill Belichick offers little insight

BY:Mike Garafolo

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Bill Belichick walked into the New England Patriots interview room, looked to his right and smirked when he saw the line of cameras in the back and the horde of reporters in front.

That rare moment of personality, of the publicly dullest coach in the NFL acknowledging even he is amused by the attention Tim Tebow generates, was not indicative of what was to follow.

Tebow signed a two-year deal Tuesday at veteran-minimum salaries of $630,000 and $730,000 with no signing bonus or guaranteed money, according to a person informed of the contract details.

The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the terms weren’t to be discussed publicly, said there are playing-time escalators in the second year of the deal.

So, what is Belichick getting for the money? Who knows?

In what was surely an effort to immediately show he intends to stomp out any possible distractions Tebow could bring into his team’s locker room, Belichick was evasive and terse when asked anything from how he plans to use Tebow to whether he’ll care if his, uh, quarterback does a little Tebowing on the field.

“Anything we do is in the best interest of the team,” Belichick said. “Tim’s a talented player that works hard, so we’ll see how it goes.”

Did you talk to him about dealing with the attention?
