    Edit: as reported earlier by Ian rapoport, some news outlets saying it's not likely now. My bad

    Because the flames in Gainesville are so large that we can't see as far as St. Louis.

    all they have is Kellen Clemens, so you'd assume they'd sign somebody to be a backup

    I guess that's a given, the Rams will sign someone

    Do you mean to tell me that the Rams might be offering Tebow a contract to play pro football? Have they not read all the harsh criticisms of his pass release? Obviously they are just looking for a backup FB!

    Which pass release? After having about 100 different experts work on his technique, he may not even know how to release the ball anymore. He probably drops back to pass thinking, "Let's see now, what's the best way to release it?" While at the same time he's supposed to be looking for receivers.

    At the rate this is going, Tebow may be the only player in NFL history to suit up for every single NFL team before his career is done.

    Bears sign QB Jordan Palmer.... Carson's brother

    http://espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/stor...er-chicago-bears-quarterback-least-four-weeks

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/10648/jordan-palmer

    4 Games played, 10 for 15 66% for his career

    Wasn't Trestman a huge Tebow fan? Said he would take him in the CFL when he coached there.

    As much as I hate to say it, but It doesn't appear any team will give him a shot at this point. It's a real shame to see what has happened. He got kicked to the curb for taking the Broncos to the playoffs, and then a sham deal/off to the Jets. Pats, well what you can u say. It's as much political as not, in my opinion.

    Sadly I do not see any team signing TT and dealingwith the 24/7 ESPN circus that comes with him. Kid doesn't ask for it.

    I don't know about political, but I really do think the media's "smear campaign" as I like to call it killed Tebow's career. Not just negative media either. The media blew everything he did out of proportion. Don't think I have ever seen a young QB mercilessly scrutinized like that.

    That is the unfortunate problem here. He'll bring a circus in, and it's not his fault.
