If Tebow really wants an NFL career and is smart...

(1/8) > >>

    ... he'll forget about posing as an NFL-level QB and work on other football skills. He wouldn't be the first...
     Packer great Paul Hornung, now in the HOF, was drafted #1 as Notre Dame's "Golden Boy" QB and Heisman Trophy winner before Lombardi became HC. He quickly realized Paul was no QB, at least not in the NFL. Hornung developed into one of the NFL's all-time versatile players who could run inside or outside, block, catch, or throw the occasional option pass. Oh, and he was a very solid place kicker too; his 176 points scored in 1960, the NFL's last 12 game season, was the NFL record until 2006. And, he passed for 2 more TD's that season, which didn't count...
     Think about it, Tim; VERSATILITY is everything, and the window is closing... ;)

     If he's got the desire, I think he could develop into a a jack-of-all-trades kind of RB on the Bucs. Worth a shot if he becomes available. NOT serious competition for Freeman though...

I agree. Good post. We need a TE here. Maybe he can be our new weapon at te. Sell tickets and a new te. Can't beat that.

The guy could seriously be a good fullback or TE.

Although, I doubt he wants to create that label for himself, as evident of his jets season (Ryan would have ran him more, or as the hb).

QB's last longer than RB's, and get paid more. Simple economics in the NFL.

You lost me at "and is smart". Let the Jaguars have him. The Bucs don't need the distraction.

    Sparky, Hornung worked the celeb vs football thing out back in the '60's under Lombardi just fine. I think Tebow needs to make that same kinda decision...
