Combine notes: Tebow, strong defensive draft

Sunday, February 28, 2010, 1:58 PM
Some random thoughts this afternoon from watching the NFL Network's coverage of the combine: * Not that it has anything to do with how he would potentially perform as a quarterback in the NFL, but Tim Tebow turned in a strong performance in the tests today.

As Brian Westbrook walked off the field at Cowboys Stadium following the Eagles' playoff loss, he had a pretty good idea that his career in Philadelphia might be over.
