Eric Decker Says Tim Tebow Can “Create His Own Role” on Eagles Offense

By Rachel Wold

New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker knows a thing or two about working with his former teammate, Tim Tebow. With the NFL being on the verge of possibly changing up the PAT rule, there could be more opportunities for someone of Tebow’s ilk to hammer out a role on offense.

Speaking about his former teammate in Denver, Decker emphasized Tebow’s athletic ability and physical prowess (via NY Daily News).

“Chip’s been doing a lot of stuff this year, so I think anything’s possible. Really, (Tebow) can create his own role. I know he wants to be head quarterback, but he can create a role for himself that can help a team in many ways (whether it’s) the two-point conversion if it’s moved up or a goal-line package,” Decker said. “He has the athletic ability to be a personal punt protector…and can play other positions. They’ll figure out a way to utilize him if it’s going to help them be a better football team.”

Considering Decker spent a successful season with Tebow back in 2011, he knows as well as anyone what the much-maligned quarterback can bring to the table.

It will be interesting to see what the Philadelphia Eagles and Chip Kelly have planned for the former Heisman winner.
