TEBOW CONTRACT: 2 YEARS, NO GUARANTEED MONEY

The New England Patriots formally announced the signing of quarterback Tim Tebow on Tuesday.
The contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, is reportedly for two years with no money guaranteed, which means the Patriots will not owe Tebow any money if they cut him.

As Pro Football Talk notes, the Patriots are not risking anything by signing Tebow. And should Tebow make the team and perform well, the two-year contract ensures there will not be a circus in the offseason about whether Tebow will return next year, as there was this offseason in New York.

In other words, Tebow has no leverage and has to prove himself.  But how will he prove himself?  The Patriots already have a starter and back-up QB?

The good news for Tebow?  Belichick will keep the press at bay like no other.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I listened to Peter King today in the car and he was saying that with the right personnel, there NO reason why the Patriots shouldn't go for two points after every touchdown. 

That it would translate into a lot more points over a season.

His opinion is that Tebow is perfect for such a scheme.

Also, he said that by Tebow coaching and inspiring the practice squad team, it would allow the 2nd string QB to take more snaps weekly with the first team.....in case Brady's 36 year old body gets injured...he could supposedly step right in.

Mud, I'm not so sure about that. The CFL requires a lot of passing and a lot of scoring. Tebow's strengths have always been low-scoring, gritty, squeak-by-the-opponent-right-when-it-matters affairs.

Ideally, if the UFL were still around (and, well, thanks to the Democrats in charge of that league, they ran it into the ground by overspending), Tebow would have been an ideal candidate for them. The UFL or any other lower league would thrive on the publicity a Tebow signing would bring.
