Last season, Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow entered the NFL as a much-heralded rookie out of the University of Florida. He recently joined The Dan Patrick Show to discuss his rookie season and he offered up some advice to this year’s rookie quarterback class. You can listen to the entire interview right here.
The show’s host asked Tim Tebow about the comparisons made this year between himself and Cam Newton. Tebow responded that there will always be comparisons made between the two as they both achieved success in the NCAA, both winning a Heisman and a National Championship.
Tebow told the host that he was happy with the Denver Broncos selection of LB Von Miller, that he was looking forward to competing for the starting quarterback spot whenever the players are allowed back to the training facility and that he has not spoken recently to fellow Broncos QB Kyle Orton. Of course, this offseason Kyle Orton is believed to be on the trading block as soon as teams are allowed to discuss trades.
Tebow also said that he expects former University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer to return to coaching within the next few years.
But, Tim Tebow had some words of wisdom for this year’s class of rookie quarterbacks, be humble. When asked about the most important thing that rookie quarterback’s should learn in their rookie season, Tebow responded, “I think it’s to be humble. It’s not to go in there thinking that you know anything. It’s to go in there and absolutely learn, be humble, take everything in, and work as hard as you possibly can”.
