Colts should sign Tebow




Ahhhhhh, nothing stirs up controversy like Timmy Football Christ. If the Jets aren't able to find a trade partner (and it seems unlikely at this point) then I assume that Tebow will be released. I say this half jokingly, but with a grain of truth, what if the Colts signed him... as a fullback?

Here is the case:

1.) We need a FB. The Colts are likely to use more two back sets with Pep Hamilton coming in as OC. No one currently on the roster really profiles as a FB. Dwayne Allen can do it, but it seems a waste to not have him out running routes especially if we are running more two TE sets.

2.) Tebow can run. Tebow's ability to run has never been in question. It's just his mechanics and decision making that are the problem. Not sure whether he can block, but he has the bulk and tenacity for it.

3.) Shameless marketing grab. Hey, the NFL is still a business and we would have the most popular fullback in the league blocking for Ballard. Not a bad thing.

4.) Tale of the tape. Obviously there is more to the position that height, weight, and running stats... but it's something. All I am saying is that the possibility is intriguing.

Tim Tebow - 6'3" - 236lbs

40 time - 4.7

Rushing Stats (at UF) - 2,947 - 57TD - 4.3 tpc

Lonnie Pryor - 6'0" - 230lbs

40 time (est) - 4.7

Rushing Stats (FSU) - 723 - 18TD - 5.9 ypc

5.) We need help in short yardage. As long as I can remember, converting short yardage has been a struggle for the Colts. For all his faults, Tebow opens up a plethora of short yardage options that give defenses fits. How exactly does one defend against a Fullback throwing a jump pass?

I'm not saying we should trade for him, or sign him to a big money contract. The idea is a little silly in its entirety, but just think; what if...
