Tim Tebow Says He’s Enjoyed Learning Patriots’ Complex Offense, ‘Blessed to Be Out Here’


Tim TebowTim Tebow was all smiles after the Patriots’ first joint practice with the Buccaneers.

The third-string quarterback appears to be enjoying his time with the Patriots. The Patriots have installed some read-option looks for Tebow in practice and in Friday’s game. Even though he appears to be running his own offense, he said he’s having a good time learning New England’s complex system.

“I’ve really enjoyed it,” Tebow said. “I love the offense. Being able to learn from a great quarterback, one of the best to ever play, to be able to learn from coach [Josh] McDaniels, and work with coach [Brian] Daboll and coach Scar [Dante Scarnecchia] and everybody that’s been in this offense. It’s a pleasure for me.”

Tebow didn’t get a lot of reps in the offense Tuesday. Brady was leading the offense in 11-on-11 drills. Tebow spent some time throwing to the running backs and tight ends. He also led the third-team offense at the end of practice against Tampa Bay’s backups.

“Just getting better every single say and just enjoying the process,” Tebow said. “I’m blessed to be out here.”
