With the arrest and therefore release of Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, there is already question of who will take over his position at tight end. One player that comes to mind is former University of Florida teammate Tim Tebow. In the NFL, and especially under coach Bill Belichick, one should never doubt that a player may be used at more than one position. Out of all NFL teams, the Patriots have a history of utilizing the versatility on the roster and using players at different positions. With Tom Brady as stellar as ever at quarterback, it is very possible that Tebow may be asked to play some tight end, a move that he has resisted up until this point. However, Tebow was lucky to be grabbed by the Patriots and playing tight end unfortunately might be his only chance of some time on the field. If Tebow had been willing to play another position, he may have never left the Broncos and may still be playing on the Jets. Even if he is willing to make the switch, it will be interesting to see if he could even bring the level of play that Hernandez gave the patriots over the past three seasons. Hernandez was one of the top tight ends when he was drafted to the Patriots in 2010. At Florida, Hernandez caught 111 passes for 1,382 yards and had 12 touchdowns. With the Patriots he has 210 receptions and 2,316 yards with 20 touchdowns. Tebow, on the other hand, never caught a pass in college and has never caught one in the NFL. Needless to say, the Patriots must find someone to fill Hernandez’s shoes, Tim Tebow or not.
