Rumor Mill: Could Tim Tebow be headed from the Big Apple to Chicago?

The saga of Tim Tebow — from Gainesville to Denver to the New York Jets — has been well-documented. We’re not going to bore you with the details here, needless to say The Chosen One would love to choose himself a new city and a new team to play for.

But will any teams be willing to choose him?

He is a native of Jacksonville, Florida. However, newly hired Jaguars general manager David Caldwell told reporters at his very first press conference that Tebow was not in the organization’s future in any way, shape or form.

So, is there a potential home for the former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time BCS National Champion?

Potentially, and that chance may have recently arrived in Chicago after spending five years north of the border.

The Chicago Bears have recently hired Jim Trestman, a quarterbacks guru who spent 17 years as an assistant before taking on the head coaching role with the Montreal Alouettes. He is expected to provide starter Jay Cutler with the absolute best opportunity to succeed in the Windy City through his tutelage and years of expertise.

He has coached up the likes of Bernie Kosar, Rich Gannon, and Jake Plummer, all in their prime. But he did not simply work with quarterbacks during the season itself.

According to Fansided, Trestman worked extensively with Tebow prior to the player’s selection as a first round pick of the Denver Broncos. After seeing so many quarterbacks, Trestman was not subtle in his praise of Tebow three years ago.

“I don’t know that I’m the only one who has the sense of Tim’s ability to be developed and become a very good player in the league,” Trestman said during the draft preparation, per the Morning Journal.  “I believe in the right environment Tim Tebow will figure this out.

“He doesn’t have explosive arm strength, but he has more than adequate arm strength to throw the ball in the NFL and make all the throws.  I saw him do something totally different in seven or eight days. I can only imagine what he’s going to do in one year or two years, because he’s going to outwork everybody else and find a way to figure it out.”

We will obviously have to wait and see if this connection has any bearing a few years after the fact. Simply because Trestman tutored Tebow does not mean the new coach would like to bring him aboard. After all, the Bears already have Jason Campbell on the roster as another backup to Cutler.

Tebow will definitely be a distraction wherever he goes.Whether or not Trestman can handle such a circus in the Second City, of course, remains to be seen.

The watch will be on after the Super Bowl to see what the Jets decide to do with him.

    This would be nice to at least go to a decent team with respectability. Anything is better than being in New York with Ryan and his losers!!!

  • Chicago Nate

    Tim Tebow sucks and Chicago’s had enough garbage for one franchise. And I don’t know who Jim Trestman is, but the Bears new coach is Marc Trestman.

  • HATE THE JAQS

    If the dummies in Jacksonville don’t pick him up. I promise you he will win a NFL Championship with another team before Jacksonville even has a winning season. The Jaguars management have no clue what they are doing!!!!
