BOSTON (CBS) — If the Patriots are looking to add a quarterback from outside their organization, they’re not looking at the New York Mets’ newest baseball prospect.
Tim Tebow — reporting for duty in his new life as a baseball player in Port St. Lucie, Fla. — faced questions from dozens of reporters after his workout on Monday. Among them was an inquiry about whether or not the Patriots had reached out to Tebow, in the wake of Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury on Sunday.
Tebow the baseball player said that he won’t be Tebow the football player any time soon — at least not in New England.
Tebow, of course, served a brief stint with the Patriots in the summer of 2013. He played in three preseason games, completing just 36.7 percent of his 30 passes for 145 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while taking seven sacks.
He signed with the New York Mets earlier this month as he attempts to embark on a career in baseball.
