10:06 AM ET 07.27 | If Tim Tebow makes the Patriots' final roster, it apparently won't be just at quarterback. After saying yesterday morning Tebow would be used "wherever he's best for the team," Bill Belichick then had the ex-Jet and all-around NFL lightning rod spend part of the first day of training camp catching passes with a group of running backs and receivers. Tebow, signed last month after being released by the Jets in April following one lost season, certainly fared better catching passes than throwing them yesterday. Tebow's brief stint in 11-on-11 drills as the third-string quarterback included two ugly interceptions and a screen pass that prompted laughter and groans from the rain-soaked crowd when it fluttered to the ground like a wounded duck outside Gillette Stadium.

Tebow Time!!

Hope he's got a back up plan.

No surprises there.

Hope he can catch.

Don't think Tebow makes this roster. Pats only had 2 QB's last year and he can't come close to becoming the backup. He's going to have to be lights out on special teams and learn to catch.

Plan A: CFL!

Plan B: Televangelist!

He'll make more money with Plan B.

"...... certainly fared better catching passes than throwing them yesterday..."

Can't throw and can't catch. Hmmm. Pefect QB for the Bears! And .... prefect WR for the Bears. :-)

I don't think the Bears need a pefect QB, but thanks anyway.

Whatever a 'pefect' or 'prefect' is I'm sure the Bears are set.

...but all he does is win

This must just send chills down Brady's back. Thrilled he is no doubt.

You could very well be right but what if BB comes up with some way that figures if Brady gets hurt he can gin up an offence that Tebow can win with. Some team loses their starting qb in pre-season and how much is Mallett worth in a trade?

Nice of the NY Post to have a reporter at Pats training camp just to keep everyone posted on how Tebow is doing.

I mean, they'd never just pull a story out of their arse, or anything like that, right?

Sorry, Melman ... I couldn't resist. Hopefully Trestman sends a message to his receivers: "Boys! No more Vaseline, K-Y Jelly, grease or butter on your hands during games!"

Name the one player you are certain is Not taking performing enhancement drugs. Tebow you guessed right.
