Coach: Tim Tebow, Brady Quinn close

ESPN.com news services

INDIANAPOLIS -- Broncos coach John Fox says Brady Quinn's apology to Tim Tebow shows the two have a close relationship.

"Sometimes this gets lost in translation, but I know their relationship is very good and they are good teammates," Fox said.

On Wednesday, Quinn apologized for critical comments about Tebow that were published in a magazine article. Quinn said Tebow's success last season had a lot to do with luck and that he didn't think Tebow was too humble about demonstrating his faith.

When asked about Quinn's apology, Fox said he believes the apology presents a more accurate portrayal of Quinn than the comments attributed to him.

"That just shows who he is. Sometimes that happens in conversation though it's never happened to me."

Fox's comments came Thursday at the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

With only two quarterbacks on the roster, Fox says the team will look to add two more quarterbacks before training camp.

"We typically go to camp with four quarterbacks and right now we have two, so you do the math," Fox said.
