The playoffs are in full swing these days but the Chicago Bears‘ season is already over. In Chicago, the offseason starts now.
Chicago is now searching for a new head coach and Denver’s offensive coordinator, Mike McCoy, is one of the possible candidates to land the gig.
If McCoy does become the Bears next head coach, he may consider trading for New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. Chicago has one of the best punt returners in the NFL in Devin Hester, but their own punting squad can afford to be upgraded.
In Chicago, Tebow could team up with receiver Brandon Marshall to form one of the most talked about punting duos in the game today.
Marshall has punting experience from his time in Denver and Miami. Although he never punted in a game, Marshall has practiced as a punter, having booted balls 20-plus yards in practice, per reports.
Tebow, on the other hand, has experience as a punt protector from his time in New York. While Tebow’s blocking hasn’t always been easy on the eyes, he always gives it his best effort.
The only problem, of course, would be that both players currently wear jersey No. 15. Perhaps Marshall would be willing to go back to No. 19, or Tebow might agree to go back to No. 5?
Regardless of the number situation, Tebow and Marshall teaming up to form a dynamic punting duo in Chicago would become one of the biggest sports stories of 2013. Now we wait to see if it goes down. Your move, Chicago.
