Re: [NFL] Sanchez Benched, Tebow heading to CFL?
Tebow would not be a starter with the Als obviously. That does not mean he would not be useful in some manner.
Tebow could be the short yardage guy as Jim Popp expects Adrian McPherson to sign elsewhere. Instead of just the 2nd or 3rd & under a yard guy, maybe Tebow could also be in when it is 2nd & 2, 3, or even 4 instead of Calvillo. In addition, Tebow could also be the change-of-pace guy. At 40 years old, Calvillo is no threat to leave the pocket. So putting in a different style quarterback would force defenses to prepare for more options when playing the Als.
Edmonton did this sort of thing in 2011 when Kerry Joseph came in every once in awhile for the similarly non-mobile Ricky Ray. Another reason Kavis Reed did this was to protect Ray who was getting hit all the time. So if Tebow can lessen the chance of Calvillo getting hit, that cannot be a bad thing.
