Report: Vikings interested in Tebow
Tim Tebow seems to be gaining some momentum for the NFL draft at just the right time.
With 10 days to go until the first round kicks off on Thursday, April 22, in prime time, Tebow is generating a real buzz. The latest? How about Tebow to the Minnesota Vikings with the 30th pick of the first round?
Sports Illustrated’s Peter King reports that Vikings coach Brad Childress and personnel boss Rick Spielman put Tebow through a private workout on Saturday in Florida. The Vikings seem to have interest in Tebow and they’d have the perfect situation to bring him along if, you know who, Brett Favre returns to play. King said it would be ideal if Favre plays “one or two more years” but admitted that might be stretching it.
We’ll say this: Playing behind Favre worked awful well for Aaron Rodgers. No, he’s not around in the offseason to learn from, but that might actually help Tebow. With Favre not around, Tebow would have more opportunities to work with the first team. Of course, Favre has to return to play for all of this to happen.
Tebow makes a trip to Denver this week where the Broncos have quarterbacks they have traded for in the last year: Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn.
