Tebow’s future in question. (Photo: Reuters)
Whether you believe Tim Tebow is capable of being a starting quarterback in the NFL or not, doesn’t really matter. The fact remains that Tebow has enough self confidence in himself to still not give up the dream of playing in the league. With that said, he has started to realize that no team is going to sign him right off the street as their starting quarterback, but he would still be interested in joining a team as a backup as long as he would have an opportunity to compete for the starting job.

Whatever team drafts Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL draft this May, they will surely need a capable backup because of Manziel’s durability questions. That can only lead to rumors of a Tim Tebow signing.
Think about it: Tim Tebow and Johnny Manziel will both go down in history as two of the best quarterbacks to ever play college football. How great would it be to see them on an NFL team together?
Not only would it make for one heck of a storyline, it would also make a ton of sense from a football standpoint. Both Manziel and Tebow like to scramble and run the football and both are very flawed passers.
If/when Manziel goes down to an injury and has to miss a few games, it would not take the rest of the offense a ton of time to re-adjust with Tebow under center because they are quite similar.
In addition to Tebow being a great backup for Manziel, he would also make for a great role model. Manziel has made a reputation for himself as a partier who likes to drink and have way too much fun at times. On the other hand, Tebow is seen as a great person, a great role model and one of the best leaders in all of football. If he could rub off on Manziel, it would only be a great thing for the team that drafts Manziel.
Even if Manziel never goes down to injury, signing Tebow still makes a ton of sense for any NFL team. Tebow is a great leader and his teammates have always loved him. And since Tebow has been out of the league for a while, he would no longer be a huge media distraction.
Nobody knows for sure which NFL team will invest a first round pick in Johnny Manziel, but whatever team does, they should strongly consider signing Tim Tebow as his backup. It would make a ton of sense for several reasons.
