That’s where Brady has been something of a mentor, albeit in meetings and film sessions more so than on the field. Because Brady recognizes Tebow is no threat to him, he can be totally accommodating with words of wisdom.
“I think for the most part it could be a read here and there, but it’s also just watching him, seeing how he handles himself, how he operates this offense and how he runs it. There’s a lot that I can pick up from him,” Tebow says.
Still, they have little in common, which is magnified on the field. Tebow is a left-hander, Brady a righty. Those southpaw tosses tend to sail in many directions, although Tebow has thrown more pinpoint passes this preseason than he did in his entire stay with the Jets.
Brady’s practice throws nearly always are on the money.
There is one link that is obvious to everyone — teammates, coaches, fans, media.
Adds Tebow: “He’s someone that’s great to be around because he’s been one of the best for a long time, and he’s still doing extra. He’s still working hard. He still has that edge and that’s awesome to be able to see.”
