While every team in the NFL has basically turned a blind eye away from former Jets and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, there is one former coach who thinks Tebow deserved another chance.
"I think [Tebow] can play quarterback in the NFL, but whatever offense you run might have to be tweaked a bit,” Mike Ditka said in the Chicago Sun-Times, via sulia.com. Ditka currently writes a column for the newspaper called “4 Downs With Ditka."
“This kid is a talent and he proved it in college. He is an outstanding leader. Now, does he have an unusual throwing motion? Yes. But there a lot of quarterbacks that didn’t have a perfect throwing motion. Some of them turned out to be great quarterbacks because they were great leaders. I really do think there’s a place for him. If not at quarterback, I think he could play tight end. If I was in the league and coaching today, I would take a chance on him at quarterback.”
