Elway Says Tebow Has Tools to be Long-Term Broncos QB

John Elway has already said this offseason that he expects Tim Tebow to be the starter when camp opens in August. He spoke about it again on Friday at the Scouting Combine, telling reporters that he likes the overall progress of Tebow.

“He added a great spark for us, and we really had some good things happen to us,” Elway said Friday. “I was really happy with his progress. I know Tim’s going to work hard this offseason. We’re hoping that he’s going to be the guy for a long, long time.”

Elway said he likes Tebow’s physical tools, but he needs to work on his throwing fundamentals.

“I think there’s things that we have to get him to do within our offense to be successful as an offense,” Elway said. “Tim’s strengths are, no question, he’s able to run the football, he’s a big guy and physical and likes to run it. We also want to see strides in Tim and his ability to throw the football down the field from in the pocket. We feel like that’s something we have to do to get better as an offense. To add that threat there makes everything else he does that much better.”

Tebow is working with new UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone in Los Angeles on his throwing.

“One thing I don’t have a concern about is that Tim Tebow is going to do everything he can this offseason to get better,” Elway said. “If that’s working with Mazzone, or whatever he’s doing, he’s going to do everything he can to get better.”
