Well, what do you know? Urban Meyer will talk about the Patriots and the tight end position.
Just not such that it reflects poorly on his “daily Bible study sessions.”
During the interview in which he refused to comment on former Florida player Aaron Hernandez, Meyer was perfectly willing to gush about the good Gator, Tim Tebow.
Asked if his former Florida quarterback could play tight end (since the Patriots are running short), the now-Ohio State coach offered another testimonial on behalf of his former poster boy.
“I don’t doubt Tim can do anything,” Meyer said, via Guy Cipriano of the News-Herald. “If you are asking me, that’s all speculation. He’s a good athlete, incredible competitor. To play NFL tight end now. . . . There’s only a few of them that can do that.”
Meyer was also willing to say he still speaks with Tebow regularly. Of course, his words weren’t a complete endorsement of the position change which many think will be Tebow’s only path to an NFL field, because position changes are hard.
Of course, the Jets already tried him as a personal protector. And apparently, that wasn’t Tebow’s first experience in that role, either.
