Tim Tebow: Will the Rams Give Him a Chance?

By: Erika Watts - October 21, 2013

Just when you thought that maybe we had finally heard the last of Tim Tebow after he was cut from the Patriots and no one else wanted him, now reports are surfacing that the Rams may be interested in the quarterback.

Michael Silver, a writer for NFL.com, posted on Twitter that the Rams are having discussions about offering Tebow a job after QB Sam Bradford injured his knee on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. If the reports that Bradford tore his ACL are accurate, the Rams will certainly be in need of some help at the quarterback position.

Before anyone gets too excited over Tim Tebow getting another shot, Silver says that despite the discussions, he believes chances of the Rams signing Tebow aren’t very good. Considering the Rams passed on Tebow in 2011 and showed no interest in him after he was cut from the Patriots, it’s easy to understand why Silver thinks this is unlikely.

After Tebow was cut from the Patriots at the end of August, he made the following Twitter posts:

Tebow has been pretty clear that it’s the NFL or bust for him, and he won’t consider playing another position, either. The beleaguered quarterback was offered $1 million to play two games in Moscow, which he turned down. He has also been asked about playing in the Arena Football League or the Canadian Football League, but he doesn’t have any interest in that, either, even if it does give him his best shot of getting a starting quarterback job.

A handful of Tebow fans in Jacksonville aren’t going to be too happy if he ends up signing with the Rams after the rally they held to get him down to Jax last month. That didn’t work out too well, obviously. Tim Tebow hasn’t commented on the Rams rumors yet, but he has been on vacation in Hawaii, so maybe he’s giving the dream a break for the time being.

    I would love to hear from you your thoughts regarding on returning home to Jacksonville. We could sure use your talents! I hope you are not giving any consideration to a Running Back position. You need a team that will work with your talents and not hinder them. Not to mention give you actual game tme to get back into form.

    Blessings & Peace.

      I read where one team wanted Tebow to play tight end, which he turned down. The heart wants what it wants, but he’d be an amazing TE if he ever wanted to switch over.

    GET HIM> He is a talented man and a CLASS act, they need.

    Give the guy a solid chance to prove himself. Not just 2 quarters as with New England, Not just 2 plays with the jets. He was given a chance with Denver and he did prove to be an asset. Obviously he can’t do much worst than the performance of some starting quarterbacks already in the NFL. He could be an asset to teams such as Jacksonville, Minnesota, St Louis, Tampa Bay, Atlanta.

    I like second chances. I think all people need second chances at life. Everyone from the drug addict to the felon who leaves prison to the parent that may have not been a good parent at one point in life. Every single person on this planet has needed a second chance.

    Tebow’s quest is about second chances. People think that success is measured in money, accomplishments, and wins. In reality, success is measured by how you treat others and how you can keep dusting yourself after bad things happen to you.

    Life is about perseverance, trust, and faith. When you reflect on Christ’s life, you see this. Football is not that important. It never has been. I am an athlete too and trust me, sports do not matter. What matters is how you handle adversity. That is the lesson of sports. It is the journey.

      Well said! I’m hoping Tebow gets a shot & he’s allowed to do what’s best for his success. If he’s very successful as a QB it should mean the team is on the right track.

    He should of taken the arena football job to prove to the nfl he can throw. teams don’t want a 15 minute QB, they wan’t a 60 minute QB, from my view he can not throw, he can run, he is strong, from what i see is a TE/Slot WR at best. he must be willing to put playing QB on the back burner just to make a nfl team
