FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- As he was walking off the practice field, Tim 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."
