Oh, the dog days of summer are here. NFL training camps are still five weeks, so any splat of NFL news that hits the wires often explodes onto the scene, especially if it has to do with one of the league’s major stars.
It came out today that former Broncos QB Tim Tebow spoke out about former teammate and current backup QB for the Chiefs, Brady Quinn. Tebow said,
“I had a teammate at Denver who played the same position as me and he went to the University of Notre Dame. He would brag about his university, how great it was. Most of us in the locker room were like, ‘C’mon, we all had opportunities. We chose not to go there.’ … But he talked so much about his university that it became easy. I’d say, ‘Your whole team had one guy who ran under a 5.0 40 [yard dash]. Our kicker ran under 5.0.’” – Tim Tebow
This was published in Gator Zone on Monday, but by Tuesday morning, the story had been taken down.
Tebow’s group surely had something to do with this. The QB was just being real, but his statement apparently caused some heads to turn a little too much.
