Florida QB Tim Tebow will throw at the school’s pro day March 17, and it will be an unscripted workout, meaning he’s willing to do any passes asked of him by scouts. Tebow declined to throw at the NFL Scouting Combine last weekend, but he’s now ready to show off his revamped delivery.
Tebow also revealed Sunday that he already has individual workouts with the Seahawks and Bills lined up after his pro day. While the Seahawks have committed to veteran Matt Hasselbeck next season, they need a long-term solution under center, and the Bills also are seeking a quarterback.
Tebow said he has been working out with new Arizona State offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and reigning CFL Coach of the Year Marc Trestman of the Montreal Alouettes. Mazzone is teaching Tebow the numbered offensive system, and Trestman is working with the QB on the West Coast offense. Those two systems are the dominant offensive passing schemes in the NFL.
Mazzone coached current Chargers Pro Bowl QB Philip Rivers at N.C. State, and Trestman was the offensive coordinator/quarterback coach for the 1995-96 49ers with Steve Young and the 2002 AFC champion Raiders led by Rich Gannon. Tebow said he really enjoys working with both coaches.
