FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tim Tebow said Tuesday it was “an honor” to be able to play for Bill Belichick and learn from Tom Brady, saying he expects his time with the New England Patriots “to be a lot of fun.”
As he was walking off the practice field, where he wore a red (non-contact) jersey and worked with the team’s quarterbacks, Tebow made a short statement to the dozens of reporters waiting for him but did not take any questions.
“First and foremost, I just want to thank the Patriots for giving me an opportunity,” he said. “I’m very thankful. It’s such an honor to be a Patriot and play for coach [Bill] Belichick and coach [Josh] McDaniels, and learn under Tom [Brady] and be a part of this great franchise and very successful franchise. I found out first hand; lost to them several times.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to working hard every single day and getting a lot better and learning under some great people. That’s all I got. Thank you all so much and God bless. I’m sure we’ll be talking more soon.”
