For the first time, Tim Tebow strapped on a helmet emblazoned with the New England Patriots logo. Less than 24 hours after the Tebow-to-Patriots news first broke, the polarizing quarterback was practicing in New England on Tuesday.
With a new offense to learn and a role that remains undefined, the 25-year-old quarterback was largely relegated to watching new teammates Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett in action during practice, according to the Boston Globe.
As the photos below attest, Tebow also managed to take a few snaps, do some jogging with Brady and get reacquainted with Josh McDaniels. Currently the offensive coordinator with the Patriots, McDaniels was the head coach in Denver when Tebow was drafted in 2010. Tebow also faced several dozen reporters after practice, saying of his time in New England that "it’s going to be a lot of fun."
