Roger Goodell hopes that the free agent can find a team for the 2013 season.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Sunday that he hoped that free agent Quarterback Tim Tebow can find himself a new team for next season.
Speaking to NFL Network, where he discussed many other topics revolving around the sport as well as the Tebow controversy, Goodell hoped that Tebow was part of the league moving forward.
“I try to stay out of the decisions about who should be playing in the NFL and on what team.” Goodell said.
“But as a young man, he’s just a super young guy, and I sure hope he’s part of the NFL going forward. He’s just a terrific young man and represents all of the values that I think all of our players do.”
The media attention that Tebow garners is always going to keep him in conversation regarding a possibility of making an NFL roster who needs an emergency Quarterback.
His profile and marketing strengths are one other reason why some teams may yet still make a move on the awkward Quarterback, and will ignore his poor throwing action if it will mean raising the profile of their own team in the process.
After a glowing endorsement from the league’s chief, it is now up to a team who could be willing to gamble on the 25-year old next year.
