Tim Tebow is now looking for work, but his timing is bad if he wants a career in the CFL.
The Montréal Alouettes have their QBs ready for camp that is not far away. Quentin Porter looks to be the backup for Anthony Calvillo.
The Alouettes own Tebow's rights. Montréal GM Jim Popp says Tebow could be a backup QB for his team.
Tebow might not have to adapt for long if he did make the move north. When Tebow came out of Florida, we pointed out that the CFL would be a great destination for his talents. When it seemed like Tebow would have success in the NFL, we admitted that as well.
Going for the money made sense, but if this is Tim Tebow being a long-term quarterback, the CFL is his best option. Think about Doug Flutie, who went to the NFL before he became a CFL legend.
If Tebow makes the trip up north and goes to the Alouettes camp, he could get enough exposure to get his rights traded to another CFL team. That won't happen until CFL executives see Tebow playing Canadian football.
Tebow has a better sense of the world more than other pro athletes in his position, so adapting to Canada wouldn't be that significant.
NBC Sports Network did go to Montréal on Saturday, but not with hockey in mind.
The Montréal Impact had a home date with the Chicago Fire at Stade Saputo on Saturday on the NBC Sports Network.
Play-by-play announcer Arlo White had many nice things to say about the stadium and the city. White, being English, pronounced it "Stad" instead of the French "Sta-de." Stade is French from stadium.
While I have seen a few Impact games, this was my first look at Stade Saputo. You can see Olympic Stadium nearby in the background. From another angle, you can see downtown Montréal in the distance.
Stade Saputo is right near Olympic Stadium; I must have literally just missed it on my trip to Montréal last spring.
The Impact, off to a good start in its second MLS season, posted a 2-0 shutout. The second goal came after Chicago got a questionable red card, think permanent power play.
