No, the Buccaneers don’t need to add free agent Tim Tebow
By Rob Leeds
The Buccaneers don’t need former Heisman winner Tim Tebow.
The Tim Tebow experiment is over In Jacksonville. We all saw this coming, and the first game with several lowlights was the nail in the coffin for the former quarterback turned tight end. In an effort to get ahead of the Florida team to Florida team connection, the Buccaneers absolutely do not need Tebow.
As the team with one of the best tight end rooms in the NFL, the Bucs need anything but more pass catchers right now.
Tom Brady already has far too many targets to get everyone the ball enough, so even if Tebow could become one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league, there isn’t a need on the Bucs.
To make matters worse, Tebow has left plenty to be desired in his blocking. The Bucs expect all of their tight ends to be competent as blockers at the very least, and Tebow looks like he would be the worst of the bunch on the Bucs today, and that’s saying something.
Tanner Hudson, who was the best pass-catcher for the Bucs in their first preseason game, is already on the hot seat due to some weak blocking performances in practice. Just imagine what Bruce Arians would say to Tebow after some of his missed blocks from his first game.
The Buccaneers already have a good thing going with their offense. The addition of a player like Tebow would only garner negative attention, and the Bucs don’t even need another star to make their roster a focal point in the media cycle.
There isn’t a need for a player like Tebow on the active roster, although a practice squad quarterback with a similar skill set to help the team prepare for games against dual-threat QB’s wouldn’t hurt. Still, there is certainly no need for a tight end like Tebow on the Bucs.
