New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft told reporters Tuesday that he's "rooting for" quarterback Tim Tebow to make the team's final 53-man roster.
Aren't we all?
“With Tim Tebow, anyone who has met him [learns] he is a very special young man. I’m rooting for him big time,” Kraft said. “He’s been a real joy to have around here. I see why he has such a strong national following; he’s just a great, great young man."
Luckily Kraft stopped short channeling his inner Thom Brennaman and telling us how much better our lives would be if we spent five or 20 minutes with Tebow.
And Kraft also made it clear that even though he's the one who pays the bills, he won't be involved in any player personnel decisions -- even when it comes to a person as special as Tebow. That's entirely up to Coach Bill Belichick, the owner said.
