Patriots owner Robert Kraft appeared on CBS This Morning on Tuesday to discuss the concussion settlement and the Patroits’ hectic offseason. But before Kraft could flee the scene, host Charlie Rose asked Kraft to discuss the release of Tim Tebow because there was just no way Rose was going to let Kraft leave without talking Tebow.
And what happened next was Kraft professing his love for Tim Tebow.
“I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team,” Kraft told Rose on CBS This Morning. “If you look at four of the last five years, we’ve only carried two quarterbacks. And when a cut-down time comes, you need those last three or four positions for depth, and we happen to have, I think, the finest quarterback in the history of the game, and he’s not going off the field except by injury. We have a great second-string quarterback. When he came in he came in as the third quarterback and we were all rooting for him.
