Business Insider ESPN shed thousands of collective tears when the New York Jets released their personal protector on the punt team Monday.  Some fans laughed.  Others thanked greater powers (why, I don’t know).  Some NFL general managers confirmed publicly that their team had no interest in the newly-waived former quarterback.  The ears of some GMs perked up.  Lions GM Martin Mayhew did neither.  It’s as though he had never thought about whether Tim Tebow could find a niche on the Lions. In an interview with Detroit’s 97.1 The Ticket, Mayhew wouldn’t rule out pursuing Tebow.”I feel good about our quarterbacks right now,” Mayhew said.  “We’ve got four on our roster and we typically go with four.  But I’m the kind of guy who never says never.” You hear that, Lions fans? As of right now, Tebow is reportedly unwilling to change positions away from quarterback (despite toying around on the Jets’ special teams units).  However, should Tebow agree to play tight end or running back or safety, I think Mayhew’s ears might perk. The Lions don’t need a wrinkle.  They don’t need a gimick.  They have some of the most loyal fans in all of the National Football League. But who knows, maybe Mayhew enjoys circus music.  Because that is exactly what Tebow would bring.
