In light of recenter reports that an anonymous Jets player stated that Tim Tebow is terrible, some of his former teammates have come to the backup quarterbacks aid.
Receiver Demaryius Thomas was one of the first to defend Tebow while talking to Mike Klis of The Denver Post.
“I was disappointed that players would say something like that about him in public,” said Thomas. “Because he didn’t do anything to anybody. I don’t know. … It was sad when I heard about it.”
Eric Decker also had some thoughts on Tebow’s situation with the Jets.
“Obviously, everybody has opinions on the guy,” Decker said. “Mine was, I respected the guy. His passion for the game, what he did on Sundays — it wasn’t always the most conventional way, but it was a win. A lot of guys bought in and trusted more.”
It’s good to see some players out there defending Tebow.
Say what you will about his ability to play quarterback, Tebow seems like a decent guy off the field.
