Belichick has expressed support for Tebow

Tim Tebow hasn’t officially signed with the Patriots yet, and Bill Belichick won’t be addressing the topic until approximately 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, when he holds a press conference before the start of the Patriots’ minicamp, which Tebow will attend.

Fortunately, we don’t need to wait until tomorrow to hear Belichick’s thoughts on Tebow. The two have been friends since at least 2007, when Belichick would visit the University of Florida to swap ideas with Urban Meyer’s coaching staff. And Belichick wasn’t shy about his support of Tebow when he spoke extensively about him in 2009-10 when Tebow was wrapping up his legendary NCAA career and preparing for the NFL. Heck, he even took Tebow out to dinner in the North End in the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft.
