Bill Belichick: I don’t hate Tim Tebow

06.06.13 at 4:11 pm ET

Bill Belichick contradicted a report from last month that indicated the Patriots coach disliked Tim Tebow and didn’t want him in New England.

“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent. Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,” Belichick told ESPN on Thursday. “It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”

Last month, a column from Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports quoted an “organizational source” as saying Belichick disliked Tebow as a player and there was “no chance” of him coming to New England.

Tebow is a free agent who was released by the Jets last month.
