CBS Sports NFL columnist Pete Prisco, who wrote a piece Monday opining that the Tim Tebow signing is an example of the Patriots’ arrogance under Bill Belichick, joined Dennis & Callahan on Tuesday morning to discuss the situation.

FOXBORO — It’s official. Tim Tebow is a Patriot.

The Patriots announced Tuesday morning, hours before the opening of their mandatory mini-camp, that they have signed free agent quarterback Tim Tebow. Terms of the contract were not announced, though ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports it’s a two-year non-guaranteed deal. Tebow is expected to be in camp and fully participate.

I'll admit it. I'm not wild about Tim Tebow.  But I'm trying to be open-minded.



Let us rid ourselves of any confusion: Tim Tebow will never be a successful NFL quarterback. His days of quarterbacking relevance, save for a fluky half season, ended when he left Urban Meyer and the SEC.  



So Tim Tebow is coming to Foxboro. What does this mean for the Patriots?

The Patriots are set to sign quarterback Tim Tebow, and expect him to be present when minicamp opens on Tuesday, according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

The former Heisman Trophy winner, who has played for both the Broncos and Jets over the course of his professional career, was cut this spring after one season in New York. The 6-foot-3, 236-pounder has played in 35 games over the course of his NFL career, and has gone 173-for-361 for 2,422 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Former Patriots receiver Chad Johnson (previously know as Chad Ochocinco) was sentenced to 30 days in jail Monday for violating probation after he was admonished by a judge in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for not taking the proceedings seriously.

Former Patriots receiver Wes Welker, now a member of the Broncos, admitted in a meeting with the media in Denver on Sunday that he feels freer to speak his mind since parting ways with Bill Belichick.

LeGarrette Blount is a big guy. But truth be told, he’s not much bigger than most of the running backs Bill Belichick has worked with over the course of his coaching career in New England.

Bill Belichick contradicted a report from last month that indicated the Patriots coach disliked Tim Tebow and didn’t want him in New England.

“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent. Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,” Belichick told ESPN on Thursday. “It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”
