Tebow: It's an honor to be a Patriot
June 11, 2013, 1:30 pm
FOXBORO -- Tim Tebow didn't take questions after his first day in Foxboro. Instead, Patriots PR brought the newly-signed quarterback over to say a few words to the gathered mob of reporters. A strange, perhaps unprecedented event for Day 1 of mini-camp.
But all things Tebow don't happen inside the lines, do they?
"First and foremost I just want to thank the Patriots for giving me an opportunity," Tebow said. "I'm very thankful. It's such an honor to be a Patriot and play for coach [Bill] Belichick and for coach [Josh] McDaniels, and learn under Tom [Brady] and be a part of this franchise -- part of a very successful franchise. I found that out first hand; I 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 better, and learning under some great people."
"That's all I've got, but thank y'all so much. And God bless."
