Tedy's take on Tebow's chances

By Mike Reiss

Caught up with ESPN NFL analyst Tedy Bruschi today for some advance planning and at the end of the conversation, the question was asked, “What do you think will happen with Tim Tebow?”

This is how he answered, which we decided to pass along here (with Tedy's go-ahead):

"I could envision a scenario where he is initially cut and not on the 53-man roster, but he comes back at another point down the line. Maybe multiple times, sort of like they did one year with Ross Ventrone. He was on the roster. He was off the roster. He was on the roster. He was off the roster. It sort of depended on the overall health of the team that week if the Patriots could keep Ventrone or had to go in another direction. Receiver Deion Branch has been in that situation, to a lesser degree. I could see Tebow being that guy this season as people in the organization would like to see him around and see if he can continue to be developed."
