Tim Tebow is bald, thanks to Broncos teammates

Whether you enjoy rookie hazing or think it is a juvenile practice, you have to appreciate what the Denver Broncos‘ veterans did to rookie quarterback Tim Tebow on Saturday. Looks like Jockey and Nike will have to wait a few months before using the former Florida Gators star for any endorsement photos. Welcome to the NFL, kid.

The goal, according to The Denver Post was to make Tebow look like the Statue of Liberty. “It was my vision,” linebacker Wesley Woodyard (a Kentucky alum) said.

As expected, Tebow took the hazing in stride. “I just took it, tried to be a good sport with it,” Tebow said. “It was fun, you know? I think all the rookies had a good time with it. It was something to give everybody a laugh, something also to build chemistry.”

    Man! It’s not even the pre season yet, and Tim’s already starting to lose his hair!

    For a second there, I thought it was Danny Wuerffel.

  8. GatorDoc says:

    I would still make sweet, sweet holy Gator love to him!

    Just wait until they make him do the elephant walk

    New meaning to the tuck rule

    I have to wonder if the ‘haircut’ is a traditional Broncos hazing activity or if he was singled out for extra embarrassment? I am sure he took it like the man he is, and demonstrated that he really doesn’t have the ego his detractors accuse him of. Of all people who would be criticized for refusing or complaining, he could not afford to object ( nor would he likely do so).

    ESPN’s lead in was so funny…..they metioned a hair cut and then he said…’just take a little off the top please’ as the camera panned to show that disaster

    Call him Friar Tuck or ‘whatever’…he’s going to pan out a pretty good QB in the NFL and could probably double as a TE
