Poll: Should Patriots pursue Tim Tebow?

04.29.13 at 11:12 am ET

Tim Tebow was released by the Jets on Monday, just over a year after New York acquired him from the Broncos. There has been some speculation that the Patriots might have an interest in signing Tebow.

There are some obvious connections, as Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was coaching the Broncos when Denver drafted Tebow, and Bill Belichick is known to have a good relationship with Tebow’s former college coach at Florida, Urban Meyer. Aside from that, Tebow could give the Patriots offense another dynamic with his ability to run the wildcat.

Working against Tebow is the fact that his presence can be a distraction for a team, as was the case in New York. Plus, Tebow has indicated he wants to get regular snaps at quarterback rather than be a part-time contributor.

Poll: Who deserves the most credit for the Patriots' 23-14 win over the Chargers?

  • The defense. It held San Diego to no points in the second half and just one offensive touchdown. Jamie Collins was the key with two sacks, and Darrelle Revis held Keenan Allen in check. (93%, 473 Votes)
  • Special teams. Brandon Bolden blocked a punt -- the first in franchise history since 2010, which gave New England great field position for its first TD -- and Stephen Gostkowski had three field goals. (4%, 20 Votes)
  • The offense. Julian Edelman was nails, with eight catches for 141 yards and a touchdown, while Rob Gronkowski had eight catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. (3%, 17 Votes)
