The New England Patriots signed Tim Tebow to a two year deal on Tuesday, although his contract includes no guaranteed money and no signing bonus. That means that the Patriots could release Tebow at absolutely any time with no salary cap or cash ramifications to the team in 2013 or going forward. That is why many people feel as if the Patriots signing Tebow comes as a low-risk, high-reward move. The question remains, why exactly did the Patriots sign Tebow?
Is Tebow being brought in strictly as a No. 3 quarterback on the roster, behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett? Is it expected that Tebow will push Mallett to become the back-up QB to Brady, after his tutor, Chris Weinke, said that his mechanics will impress people and that his throwing flaws have been eradicated? Is Tebow in New England to learn behind Brady for a couple of seasons, eventually taking over when No. 12 decides to call it a career?
