BOSTON (CBS) — So, Tim Tebow is now a member of the New England Patriots.

That’s sure to raise a few eyebrows in the region. For one, he is a one-man media machine, drawing more attention as the Jets’ backup quarterback last season than perhaps any other backup in history.

For two, the Patriots already have themselves a quarterback in Tom Brady, a future Hall of Famer with three Super Bowl championships and no chance of standing on the sidelines to let Tebow take some snaps.

Because of Brady being the man at QB, it stands to reason that the Patriots did not acquire Tim Tebow the quarterback, but rather Tim Tebow the football player.

Even when he was Denver’s starting quarterback, he was more dangerous with his legs than he was with his arm, as evidenced by his 660 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns in 2011. So there’s a possibility there.

The Jets also tried, unsuccessfully, to turn Tebow into a receiving option, as well as a special teamer. And with Rob Gronkowski likely out at least for the start of training camp and perhaps the start of the season, the Patriots may need a big body to help out on the offensive side of the ball. At 6-foot-3, 236 pounds, Tebow could be in the mix to help out.

So, how will Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels utilize Tebow?
