New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently said that he wanted Tim Tebow to make his team. Kraft also said he hopes the quarterback gets signed by another team.

“I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team,” Kraft said Tuesday in an interview on CBS’ This Morning. “If you look, four of the last five years we’ve only carried two quarterbacks, and you know when a cut-down time comes, you need those last three, four positions for depth.”

Tom Brady, who spoke out for the first time since Tebow was cut from the team, said he enjoyed the former Florida Gator as teammate.

“I enjoyed being around him very much,” Brady said of Tebow on the “Dennis & Callahan Show” in Boston. “He’s a very talented football player, and to have a chance to spend a couple months with him and kind of become a friend of his was a great thing.”

“Yesterday we were talking about a lot of the quarterbacks that have been through our team over the years, and everyone brings a unique skill set and attitude to the table, and I really enjoyed being with him,” Brady said.

After Tebow was waived Saturday, it left Ryan Mallett as the only quarterback on the depth chart to back up Brady.
