Report: 49ers Could Be Landing Spot for Tim Tebow

As it was rumored last month, the 49ers could be a potential landing spot for Tim Tebow.

The New York Jets are actively trying to trade Tebow, according to ESPN, and an opposing personnel director thinks the 49ers would be a good fit.

The report states:

The personnel director speculated the 49ers could be a landing spot. They run the read-option offense with Colin Kaepernick and, once the Alex Smith-to-Kansas City trade becomes official March 12, the Niners will need a backup quarterback.

Tebow was the Jets backup last season, and saw limited action in 12 games. Of course, he leapt into the spotlight the year before when he led the Broncos to the playoffs.

The 49ers are also reported to be interested in cornerback Darrelle Revis, so there could be a chance of a trade involving both Tebow and Revis that would essentially blow up Twitter.
