Report: Patriots signing Tim Tebow, will be at minicamp Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

(CBS Sports) - A few days after New England coach Bill Belichick said he didn't actually hate former Jets/Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, the Patriots apparently are intent on proving it.

That's because the Patriots reportedly are signing Tebow to a contract, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. The team expects Tebow to be at minicamp by Tuesday.

After a recent Yahoo story revealed that Belichick reportedly hated Tebow as a player, Belichick felt compelled to say this a few days ago.

"Every single player has strengths and weaknesses. But regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible," Belichick said, via ESPN Boston. "It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported."

On Monday, the team also announced it had released quarterback Mike Kafka, leading us to believe that Tebow, in fact, will play quarterback for New England.
