NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — So Tim Tebow is now a New England Patriot.
Who saw that one coming?
The former Jet officially signed with the Pats on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
He signed a two-year contract that included no guaranteed salary, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The quarterback will be reunited with Josh McDaniels in New England. McDaniels, the Patriots’ offensive coordinator, drafted Tebow in 2009 as head coach of the Denver Broncos.
With future Hall of Famer Tom Brady under center, how Belichick plans to use Tebow remains to be seen.
The 25-year-old was traded to the Jets in March of 2012 and cut by the team this April. Used primarily as a personal punt protector on special teams, Tebow completed six of eight passes for 39 yards in 2012. He also had 32 rushes for 102 yards.
Naturally, when the news of the former first-round pick joining Bill Belichick, Brady and company came out it garnered significant reaction.
Belichick “will find a way to turn Tim into a huge asset,” Giants co-owner Steve Tisch told the New York Post.
“This is the well-deserved Act III in Tim Tebow’s NFL career,” Tisch said on Monday.
Here are some other reactions from the twitterverse from celebrities, analysts and athletes.
