Before the Patriots took a chance on him, Tim Tebow wasn't given much of a chance to play in a regular season game this year. Despite being under contract, the odds still aren't in his favor. In his assessment of the Pats' roster, Mike Rodak of ESPNBoston.com gives Tebow just a 25 percent chance of cracking the final 53-man unit. Rodak is speculating, but provides sound reasoning for his opinion, stating that Tebow may not provide enough value to the club. He's unlikely to beat out Ryan Mallett for backup quarterback duties, and New England probably won't use him at other positions or in the Wildcat. As such, Tebow could be facing an "uphill battle" to secure a place on the team. Rodak, however, concedes that it's "simply too early" to make any determinations, especially with coach Bill Belichick's infamous against-the-grain philosophy.

  • I think after what has happened so far this off season that Tebow will make the team.

Strawberry a great admirer of Tebow?

The book on Tim Tebow is that he's either derided or deified, depending on whom you ask, with very little middle ground to speak of. Darryl Strawberry might not seem like the most likely candidate to canonize Tebow, what with his hard-partying, addiction-riddled past that seems at odds with Tebow's message. But in an interview with USA Today , the former New York Mets and...
