    “I’m just trying to get better every single day,” Tim Tebow said.

    Tim Tebow addressed the media for the second time during training camp – and the third time in his tenure with the Patriots.

    This media session, at the end of Friday afternoon’s practice, lasted less than three minutes.

    Once again, reporters peppered Tebow for his thoughts on a former Florida teammate who has been in the headlines.

    The Eagles announced on Friday that wide receiver Riley Cooper would take a leave of absence from training camp to meet with counselors. Earlier this week, Cooper came under fire after a video surfaced showing Cooper using a racial slur toward an African-American security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert.

    Cooper and Tebow roomed together at Florida.

    “I haven’t seen everything that’s happened,” Tebow said. “I’ve been pretty busy. I’m going to wait to comment until I hear what happened.”

    As for his onfield progress? Tebow said he’s “feeling good” and “working hard.”

    “I’m just trying to get better every single day,” Tebow said. “That’s our goal and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

    Tebow, the clear third-string quarterback during camp, has been spending extra time with offensive assistant Brian Daboll during, and sometimes after, practice. They have been working, among other things, on Tebow’s throwing motion.

    “He’s a very bright football mind, offensive mind,” Tebow said of Daboll, who was the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator last season. “He’s been around the game a lot, been a lot of places, really understands it well. When Josh [McDaniels] is busy doing so many things, sometimes Daboll can get in there and really help, as well.”
