(NEW YORK) — With Tim Tebow’s NFL future in doubt, some feel that he is best suited to play in the Canadian Football League. But the team that holds his rights, the Montreal Alouettes, don’t want him.
Back in April, Alouettes general manager and interim coach Jim Popp offered Tebow a chance to compete to be a backup to starting quarterback Anthony Cavillo.
But now, the team is moving on from Tebow.
“We’ve never had a conversation with him or his representation,” Popp said. “It’s all for talk and there’s nothing there. There’s no substance to it”
Pop thinks Tebow’s camp would have to approach them in order for any mutual interest to be sparked.
“I don’t think they would be ready to do that,” Popp added. “But if they are…I’m sure they’ll call us.”
Tebow was recently cut by the Patriots after signing with them during the offseason.
His lack of consistency has plagued Tebow during his pro career. While he did lead the Broncos to a playoff win over the Denver Broncos in 2011, he’s also completed just 47.9 percent of his passes.
