Tim Tebow may have absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, but that never stops the folks at ESPN from talking about him. The World Wide Leader usually has no shame about forcing Tebow into its programming schedule, but this time it was an accidental behind-the-scenes clip that appeared to reveal he was a topic of discussion.
During the Ravens’ media day on Monday morning, cameras accidentally caught Hannah Storm and Mark Schlereth talking about a player that was almost certainly Tebow. What were they doing? Doubting his NFL future, of course.
“He’s like a tight end, H-back,” Schlereth explained as Storm listened attentively. “He’s not a quarterback. I’ll tell you, I talked to a bunch of Broncos coaches and they’re like, ‘I just don’t know if he’s a fluid enough athlete to play tight end.’ They said he doesn’t catch the ball naturally, either.”
At that point, it appeared that somebody informed Storm that her conversation with Schlereth was being shown on the air. With all the story lines developing in New Orleans between Ray Lewis allegedly using a banned substance and the statement Randy Moss made about himself, you would think even Tebow couldn’t work himself into the discussion. Perhaps that will never be true.
