07:16 AM ET 09.04 | If only Bill Belichick shared his owner's fondness for Tim Tebow, the former Florida star might still be in New England. Kraft appeared on CBS News' CBS This Morning Tuesday to discuss the recent concussion lawsuit settlement. And while he was there, Charlie Rose also asked the Patriots owner about Tebow's release -- Kraft says he "very much wanted" Tebow to make the team. "I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team," Kraft told Rose on CBS This Morning. "If you look at four of the last five years, we've only carried two quarterbacks. And when a cut-down time comes, you need those last three or four positions for depth, and we happen to have, I think, the finest quarterback in the history of the game, and he's not going off the field except by injury."

But fortunately for the Pats, Kraft is no Jerry Jones and let's real football guys do their thing.

Wonder how long the ghost of Tebow will hang over the NFL?

Never before has someone with so little talent commanded so much press.

"Dear fellow owner, if you want Tebow as your starting QB then just do it. Remember, you own the team! You don't even need a GM and feel free to override the head coach's decisions. It worked so well for me and my 40 year old brain!"

Exactly; Kraft liked TT personally, as do many others who get to know him, but leaves the football decisions to BB.

Kraft is total BS on this. NO WAY does he want the guy on the field playing. He knows it, smart man, talk Pats and you talk about Timmy not that other guy waiting trial. Very smart man..

I 100% agree 50, and the media is too blind to see it.
