Curran: Tebow's ceiling not high enough

Tim Tebow is coming off a disappointing stint with the Jets, but will have a fresh start in Foxboro with the Patriots. However, the analysts on "UNO Sports Tonight" are not too sure where Tebow will fit on the Patriots' roster and how he can be effective.

"I think he's got some value, but I don't think his ceiling is high enough," Tom E. Curran said of Tebow.

Tebow won't be the team's starting quarterback -- Tom Brady has that locked down. He may not be the team's second-string quarterback, as Ryan Mallet has been developing under Bill Belichick and Brady over the past few seasons. Tebow could very well be a tight end, half back or play only on special teams.

"He's not competing with Mallet or Brady," Curran said. "He's competing for a spot on the roster."

The Patriots have yet to play a preseason game, so it's unclear where Tebow will fit in on the roster to help the team, if he does.

"They'd like to keep him," Curran said, "but it's too early to say he's making the team."
