Within hours of Tim Tebow’s release Monday morning from the New York Jets, teams across the league were letting the word slip out.
We’ve got no interest.
Perhaps there is a home out there somewhere for the former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida and the first-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos in 2010. The Detroit Lions didn’t slam the door on the idea, at least.
General manager Martin Mayhew, in a radio interview on 97.1-FM The Ticket in Detroit, didn’t rule it out completely.
“I feel good about our quarterbacks right now,” Mayhew said, according to Justin Rogers of MLive.com. “We've got four on our roster and we typically go with four. But I'm the kind of guy who never says never.”
It’s difficult to imagine the Lions wanting to incorporate a Tebow package of sorts that would take starting quarterback Matthew Stafford off the field. Who knows? Maybe Tebow will be playing a new position? We’ll see if the quarterback clears his way through waivers at 4 p.m. ET.
