Bills | Tim Tebow will not catch team by surprise

Mon, 03 Sep 2012 10:03:41 -0700

The Buffalo Bills have a plan to prepare for the New York Jets' version of the wildcat in Week 1, which is expected to feature QB Tim Tebow. The team will use old Miami Dolphins scouting reports, in addition to scouting reports the team has of the Denver Broncos, Tebow's former team. "Anything they're doing is not new," LB Nick Barnett said of the Jets. "It's the NFL, and everything's been done before, and it'll be done again. The things you prepare for are the history. What that offensive coordinator's done mixed with what (the Jets) did last year. Obviously, there are going to be some new plays they haven't done, but Tebow has done a lot of those things in Denver. A lot of the things he was successful at in Denver, I'm sure they won't vacate those."
