    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Nyheim Hines Jersey . -- One day of practice wasnt enough for Patriots coach Bill Belichick to share his thoughts on new backup quarterback Tim Tebow. Two days? Not a lot to go on there, either, as Tebow spent much of Wednesdays session watching Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett run drills while he tried to absorb the new system he was thrust into when he signed with New England this week. "Were not going to get into a minute-by-minute evaluation of a player," Belichick said. "I dont think thats the way to go, especially at this time of year." Robert Kraft wasnt as reluctant to size up Tebows much maligned throwing motion after the second day of the three-day minicamp. "Hes a lot better than I am," the Patriots 72-year-old owner said, his grin growing as he spoke. And, at least in Krafts mind, probably better than hes given credit for. Kraft had strolled onto the field late in Tebows first practice with the Patriots on Tuesday. The high-profile player discarded by the Denver Broncos and New York Jets had rolled out to throw short passes while on the run and dropped back to heave long passes into the end zone. "I was just out there for a short period, but to me, he looked pretty good," Kraft said. "Its fun having him here. I think that Tom Brady throws pretty well and I also think Ryan Mallett does the same. So its nice to have three quarterbacks who can throw very well." After Tebow practiced for the second time, Brady wasnt as eager to judge him. "To get to this point, you obviously have to be talented," Brady said. "So I have a lot of respect for everyone that plays and, certainly, (for) what Ive seen him do in the past." For the second straight day, Tebow mostly watched as Brady and Mallett took turns running 7-on-7 drills. Late in the session, Tebow played in 11-on-11 situations and was hit-or-miss while running plays from his new playbook. After each one, hed consult with assistant coach Brian Daboll, who referred to paper in his hand and instructed Tebow on what to do. Tebow threw an accurate, low pass that wide receiver Chaz Schilens, in for a tryout, caught while hitting the ground. Schilens ran back toward the huddle and slapped hands with Tebow, who at least had something familiar in his new situation. He and Schilens were roommates last summer at the Jets training camp. But a few plays later, Tebow threw an inaccurate pass that landed at the feet of a defender, who booted it back toward the line of scrimmage. Hell get another chance at Thursdays final day of the three-day minicamp. Training camp wont start until late July. "I think everybody out there is pretty much in the same boat, just trying to get better day by day," Belichick said. "Some guys are starting at different points. Hes obviously starting at a point different than where other players were. "Theyre all moving along." Kraft praised Tebow for his competitiveness, hard work and spirituality. He called him a "winner" with a great attitude. That, however, may not be enough as he tries to secure a regular-season roster spot. "Having him as part of our franchise is great, but he has to compete just like anyone else," Kraft said. "Hes just one of 90 people (in camp) right now, so I wonder if we havent talked enough about him. But if you want to keep talking about him, we can do that." And he did. He said he was in on the discussions to sign Tebow. "Look," Kraft said, "life is about collecting good people around you, who you like to have with you and who want to win. I think he like many of our other players fall in that category." Tebow worked out only at quarterback during the two practices. Brady thought for a moment when asked how he would feel if he had to come off the field if Belichick wanted to use a play designed for Tebow, a good runner. "I have no idea," he said. "Thats a very hypothetical question. So, maybe well deal with it if it happens." Replacing one of the NFLs best quarterbacks with one who couldnt take playing time away from a struggling Mark Sanchez with the Jets last year is highly unlikely. "In my mind, we have the greatest quarterback of all time on our team," Kraft said. "Every time he has the ball in his hand, we have a chance to do something great." Tebow, of course, has accomplished much less than Brady. But he also brings a dimension that Kraft likes. "Hes hard-working. Hes very co-operative. I dont think theres any coach that wouldnt like to have a team full of people like he is, sort of like Brady," Kraft said. "Theyre all business and you cant get enough people like that on your team. "So, were honoured that hes with us." Discount Colts Jerseys .

The UFC has reached out to disgruntled heavyweight Mark Hunt?following his public contempt toward the promotion and Brock Lesnar, his opponent earlier this month at UFC 200.During an appearance on The MMA Hour, Hunt accused the UFC of not doing enough to combat performance-enhancing drug use in mixed martial arts. He referred to Lesnar as a gimp and cheater, and urged fighters to form an association. Hunt also said the UFC had not reached out to him at all as of Monday morning, regarding his complaints.Hunt, 42, suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Lesnar at UFC 200. Less than one week later, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) flagged Lesnar for a potential anti-doping violation stemming from a prefight test taken on June 28. Shortly after that, the USADA revealed Lesnar failed a second test taken on fight night. Sources have informed that Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene, an anti-estrogen.On Monday, Hunt went so far as to suggest the UFC might have known about Lesnars test results but still allowed him to fight on July 9. The UFC did waive a mandatory four-month testing window for Lesnar prior to the fight, citing his unique contract situation with his primary employer, the WWE.What upsets me about that is, Im just thinking maybe they knew, Hunt told The MMA Hour. Did they know about this? Is that why theyre not doing anything about it? Did they give this f---ing fool an exemption for four months because they knew about this? Because surely if they know about this, they dont give a rats about any of us.Hey man, well let this juiced up freaking monkey go in here and fight with this guy. I mean, shucks, people say should have a rematch with him. I wouldnt want to waste my time with that. Hes rubbish.A UFC official told that Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky had a lengthy conversation with Hunt on Monday and that dialogue was positive.According to the official, the conversation was to address Hunts concerns with Lesnars potential anti-doping violation, as well as the results management process related to the case.In response to Hunts conncerns regarding the time frame in which the UFC knew of Lesnars potential violation, the official adamantly denied any knowledge prior to July 9. Quenton Nelson Jersey. Hunt did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Lesnar, 39, has commented publicly only once since the first potential violation was announced. He told the Associated Press on July 15, we will get to the bottom of this. His reported purse for UFC 200 was $2.5 million, although he likely made much more in undisclosed bonuses. He is facing a potential fine and suspension from the UFC and the Nevada State Athletic Commission.The UFCs anti-doping policy went into effect in July 2015. Per that policy, a first-time offender for a performance-enhancing drug faces a two-year suspension.Hunt (12-11) has now fought three opponents who were later flagged for doping violations. He fought Antonio Silva to a draw in 2013, after which it was revealed Silva tested positive for an elevated testosterone level on the night of the fight. In March, Hunt knocked out former champion Frank Mir, who also failed a fight night test. Mir revealed the substance he tested positive for was metabolites of an anabolic steroid.The best outcome is if the company that I work for says, youve been cheating, you lose all your [fight earnings] and since it was cheating, you get fined, Hunt said. You get sued and you get a fine. Youre going straight to court, criminal court, because what youve done is an offense. Thats what I want done. So that these guys who are cheating dont have more incentive to do it, because they do it for financial gain. If you take all that away, they get nothing.Make them banned for five or 10 years. There goes your career. Five, 10 years, you have no career left and not only that, you lose all of your money. Youre done as a fighter. Thatll stop you from doing it. Thats what I want to see done. I wont be part of a company who says we dont mind you cheating or doing this or that, otherwise then every monkey will be [cheating]. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
