Tebow discussed on Fox & Friends:
"You went to [Belichick] and you said 'should I do this coach? What do you think?' You said for any other coach you wouldn't have asked, you would have just done it and gotten the million dollars. And he said 'I'd really appreciate it you not doing it.' And then a few weeks later he cuts you from the team....
Well, I didn’t want to be a distraction on the team. I wanted to be just another guy in the locker room. Someone that could work, someone that could be a backup to Tom, and I didn’t want to be a distraction having stuff all over the headlines. That’s why I called coach Belichick to say ‘what do you think about this, this is a great opportunity to say yes to, but I want to do what’s right for the team first.’
He appreciated me calling but said ‘hey, listen I would prefer if you didn’t do it. So, of course, I didn’t because I put the team first. And that’s not something I look back and regret at all. It was me trying to honor the team, and if I could do it again I’d have done the same thing.”
What a scumbag.
