Denver Broncos coach John Fox is revamping his offense to include more college-style alignments designed to help new starting quarterback Tim Tebow, Fox Sports reported Sunday.

According to the report, Tebow will receive more snaps in the shotgun formation, which could make him more dangerous as a dual-threat option. The offense may have more spread formations as well, the report said.

Tebow worked primarily out of the shotgun at the University of Florida, where he won two national titles and a Heisman Trophy. He struggled under center with his dropbacks and throwing motion in workouts prior to the 2010 draft.

The Broncos made Tebow a first-round pick and started him for three games at the end of last season. Last week, he supplanted Kyle Orton as the starter and did not play well, although he rallied the Broncos to an 18-15 win at Miami by throing for one TD and running for another.

Overall, Tebow is 17-of-37 for 240 yards and three TDs. He also has 96 yards and a TD on 16 carries.
