Mark Sanchez apologizes for brutal Tim Tebow comments

Tim Tebow is arguably the most polarizing figure in the NFL.

Most fans, and even current players, agree that Tebow is severely lacking in many areas as a quarterback. But there are those out there that also believe the deeply Christian player can improve.

Whether or not it's the love for the man that gets in the way of logic, the vast majority of NFL fans nonetheless agreed that Tebow should be given a contract by the Philadelphia Eagles when their interest in the dual-threat signal caller arised in April.

Derogatory comments

Philadelphia did hand Tebow a one-year minimum contract in the end, with a view to the former Denver Broncos quarterback becoming a two-point specialist in 2015.

However, the chances of Tebow making the Eagles' final roster for the upcoming season were damaged by comments from Philadelphia QB Mark Sanchez last month, with his former NY Jets teammate insinuating that Tebow was simply a 'camp arm' for the Eagles.

It is safe to say that these comments were pretty harsh from Sanchez and it's amazing that it took him so long to apologize, which he finally did on Monday.

"I think that kind of came off the wrong way," Sanchez said last week regarding his words about Tim Tebow being just a camp arm, according to

"At least it was not exactly what I intended to say. It took on a life of its own. Listen, everybody's here for a reason. We're all working hard, trying to make each other better. Coach wanted specific guys here for specific reasons. That's up to coach. We just plug in and play."

Can Tebow improve?

In defense of Sanchez, he didn't actually say that Tebow was a 'camp arm' but he insinuated as much. The veteran QB will be hoping all of this Tebow talk blows over sooner rather than later, with the signal caller desperate to not have the Tebow circus in town yet again.

Do you think Tebow can be of real use for the Eagles during the 2015 season? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
