Questions about Tim Tebow's football future can fade away, at least for awhile, as the polarizing quarterback has inked a deal with the New England Patriots, reports ESPN's Ed Werder.

There was no guarantee Tebow would be given another chance after being released by the New York Jets. His season in New York quickly morphed into a nightmare for both the team and himself, leaving the front office little choice but to let him go after it drafted Geno Smith.

The ongoing concern with the Florida product is the limited production he provides is outweighed by the immense media hype that follows his every move. It was something every team had to seriously consider before pursuing him.

Ultimately, Tebow does possess the ability to help a team win games. Probably not as a full-time starting quarterback due to a subpar 48 percent completion rate. But instead by playing various different roles on offense and special teams.

Tebow has accounted for 29 touchdowns and just 15 turnovers in three seasons since by drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round. He's also averaged five yards per carry. So the numbers aren't all bad once you get away from the pure passer elements.
