    The Dolphins should do everything within their power to sign Tim Tebow. He will definitely bring in a fan presence and following and would be a great addition to this team. Does anyone know if he cleared waivers? ucfpf13

    Absolutely not

    Dude had the chance to be traded to nfl team if he agreed to move positions. His ego was too big and because of it he will be in Canada.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by affordable. I would not pay a guy 2.5 million esp if I know he will probably clear waivers.
    I would sign him to be my third qb and developmental player.

    are you kidding me? do you realize the circus he'd bring along with him? i respect the man for holding tight to his Christian beliefs, but as for his athletic ability pertaining to the game of football, is a resounding "no."

    I agree. I think we should sign him now to a contract with no guaranteed money. We are two weeks away from the vote so it would be a huge boost to get the new renovations agreed upon. Use him as a practice player to work against the spread offense throughout the year and wait to see if they will open up the ability to trade him to the CFL for a receiver or lineman next year.

    I respect everyones opinion and realize there is a lot of tebow love in the state of florida but come on he does nothing for are team and the direction were going. He would create a circus and if you have doubts about the fins making playoffs now sign tebow up and we wont even sniff playoffs.

    Why would Tebow prevent us from playoffs. He wouldnt start or even play probably. The jets did not fail last year because of Tim Tebow.

    I understand it is only one example, but Wake seems to be doing pretty well for himself and us.

    I'm SO SICK of Tebow that if the Dolphins signed him, I might boycott the season. He isn't Jesus, ya know.

    Probably would win us more games than tannehill. He's a winner and has heart.

    Wake is our best player but he is an anomaly. Every year there are like two to four players that can actually play in NFL much less be successful.
    A bad sec team produces about the same level of talent. I love the CFL it is fun to watch although they should go 4 downs it actually hurts the game, makes running backs less valuable.
    THe CFL used to be alot better when it was somewhat a competition to the NFL and they actually signed some top guys. Hell former Dolphin CHris Williams is a stud WR there. Chad Owens who bounced around thr NFL not making one reception was their leading receiver last year. There is talent there but you have to look at 53 guys on nfl roster each team has like 7 practice squad guys and the injured people. So they get whats left over plus some of the overlooked guys

    I think the point would be to use him to run the scout team to prepare for the spread offense. Has he been in the league long enough to pay him the vet minumum?

    Let me humor the idea of Tebow in Miami, where does he fit on the team from a football standpoint?

    At quarterback? The Dolphins already have four quarterbacks on the roster and I don't see them choosing Tebow over Tannehill, Moore or Devlin. Tebow probably beats out Belton, but they are not keeping four quarterbacks.

    Running back? Is he better as a running back then Miller, Thomas, Gillislee, Gray or even Thigpen? Don't see it.

    Tight End? Is he better than Keller, Clay or Sims? No. I don't think he could even beat Egnew out.

    Special Teams? I think we all know he can't play there since we saw firsthand Jimmy Wilson embarrass him.

    There is no real spot on the team for him and the circus he would bring with him is not worth it. Not his fault that the media circus follows him, but why would Miami ruin all the good they have done lately by signing him? They wouldn't.

    Tebow was part of the reasone the jets failed last year. You dont think tebow had any affect on sanchez and his mental aporoach always looking over his shoulder to see if he was getting yanked. It was a joke and if tebow would not even play why even bother. From a football standpoint it makes 0 sense.

    His base salary is $630,000. That's all he is due by whatever team would have claimed him. He was advanced most of his salary by Denver, which ended up being split by Denver and NYJ, and subsequently reduced his base salaries for 2013 and 2014.

    I absolutely don't want him, but he is cheap enough that if someone did want him, it wouldn't be hard to fit him under their cap. My point is that it is not his salary the deters teams from claiming him.

    Why would he come here if he wants to play QB. I would take him on the team for a low rate if I was the owner, but Tebow would be insane to do it. He would put the nails in the coffin as only being some strange sensation. For sure the Jets took the first step in his ruin. Kind of sad, hope he finds work.

    Damn, I'm losing this opinion, just keep an open mind on ticket sales and his popularity with Gator fans and religious followers. He's a good person and I would like to see him become a Dolphin. He will help fill up our stadium, Gator fans are loyal.

    He has a better playoff win record in Denver than Peyton Manning.

    Just take the emotion out of it, it makes for a smart business move.

    winning will fill the seats. tebow will not help win. if anything, it might hurt the dolphins, as he's wasting a roster spot.

    The Jets really screwed Tebow, even if you aren't a fan of his you have to admit that he should have gotten the starting nod at some point during the season ahead of Sanchez. Unfortunately for him Rex Ryan is in love with Sanchez so he never got a shot. At this point Tebow is more of a distraction than anything, which is unfortunate because I am a big fan of his.

    I graduated in 2010 from Florida and am a big fan of Tebow...

    But HELL NO

    We dont need that circus down here, we are FINALLY on a path heading in a good direction, the media alone would bring this franchise down with his presence.

    He's a great athlete and a great human being, but signing him to fill seats and for media coverage (a la nyj) is stupid.

    Plus if free agency and this draft wasnt enough for you guys to go see games then you shouldnt be posting here...

    .

    Can never get enough attention in my personal life, but that's for another forum.

    Look, Tebow is a great athlete and deserves a 2nd chance.

    Would love to have him because he's good, Denver screwed him and so did the Jets.

    Would love to see him prosper in our stadium and increase our fan base away from the Jaguars.

    It would be a genius move if Ross pulls this off. I like the role of having a cast off or misfit, to prove everyone wrong.

    Tim Tebow would create a big buzz about our team...and I know we could find a roster spot for him.
