The Jets might be further expanding Tim Tebow's role again, making him the most multi-tasking backup quarterback in the league.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Jets are considering using him on their kickoff team now in addition to the personal protector on their punt team, hoping to utilize his speed.
From Pro Football Talk:
Thats the word from Jets assistant special teams coach Ben Kotwica, who told Manish Mehta of theNew York Daily Newsthat the team is considering using Tebow on their kickoff coverage team. Kotwica said that hes not concerned about Tebows speed getting down the field or about his ability to make a tackle when he gets down there.
When hes in coverage, hell be looking to tackle the returner, Kotwica said. And from what Ive seen, Ive got a pretty high degree of confidence that he would be able to do that.
As training camp ensues, his role may become more definitive, but for now it seems the plans for his offensive and special teams responsibilities make one thing certain: the Jets are relying on him to get the job done.
