The Minnesota Vikings will get their first look at Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow.
Tebow has been one of the most polarizing figures in the sport, dating back to his days as the starting QB at the University of Florida. The Broncos spent a first-round pick on the Gators star, and he reportedly has himself in a battle with Brady Quinn for the team’s No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind starter Kyle Orton.
Tebow will likely play a lot tonight in the final preseason test for both teams. The Vikings open the regular season a week from tonight against the New Orleans Saints.
I’m looking forward to seeing former University of Minnesota standout receiver Eric Decker, who was also drafted by the Broncos in April’s NFL draft. Decker was a stud for a pretty mediocre – to be kind – Gophers team, but a sprained foot in the middle of last season sidelined him for the rest of the year.
