Broncos head coach John Fox wants to add two quarterbacks to provide competition for Tim Tebow next season.
“Numbers wise that’s accurate,” Broncos coach John Fox said Monday. “Who, what, where, when, what market — it’s still way too early how we get those quarterbacks.”
Tebow completed 46.5 percent of 271 pass attempts for 1,729 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions in 11 starts last season. Tebow’s completion percentage dropped to 40.4 percent in the post-season and the 2010 first-round pick is working with UCLA quarterbacks coach Noel Mazzone before the team’s off-season program.
Undrafted rookie Adam Weber is the only the other quarterback on the Broncos’ roster. Whoever is added, Tebow will open up the 2012 league year as the starter.
“He’s going to come into our camp as the starting quarterback,” Fox said of Tebow. “He’s young. He can get better.”
