New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick deflected question after question about the use of his new quarterback, Tim Tebow, in his first press conference in more than a month and a half, Zuri Berry of the Boston Globe reports.
Standing in front of a throng of media members from all across the East Coast, Belichick said the popular quarterback – who will wear No. 5 – will do whatever is best for the team.
"He's a talented player, who's smart and who works hard," Belichick said.
He repeated some variation of that over eight minutes before leaving for the first practice of Patriots minicamp.
The veteran coach gave no indication of what position Tebow would play outside of quarterback. The Patriots officially announced signing Tebow on Tuesday morning.
When asked about dealing with the popularity of Tebow, including dealing with the higher number of media members covering him, Belichick quipped, "hopefully there'll be more than that at the games on Sunday."
The New England Patriots officially signed Tim Tebow on Tuesday.
