With mobile quarterbacks suddenly drawing more interest than ever, as evidenced by Pat White’s return to the game after three years in exile, someone surely will want to add Tim Tebow to the depth chart, right?
For now, no one has shown interest in the man who remains a member of the Jets’ roster. And one team that currently has only two quarterbacks on the roster, Tebow isn’t likely to join the fray.
According to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, the Seahawks don’t plan to pursue Tebow. More likely candidates to join Russell Wilson and Josh Portis are Seneca Wallace, Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn, and Matt Leinart.
Still, O’Neil writes that the Seahawks explored the possibility of acquiring Tebow. Other teams likely have, too. One major problem that comes with having Tebow on the depth chart is that, unless he’s the starting quarterback, his presence on the roster brings too many potential distractions.
One team to watch is the Rams, for two reasons. Last year, the Rams were expected to make a run at Tebow after a snag emerged in trade talks between the Broncos and Jets. Also, with 25 percent of the Rams’ schedule including the 49ers and Seahawks (along with games against the Titans and Panthers), it makes sense to have a mobile quarterback who can run the scout team.
