The San Francisco 49ers currently don't have a quarterback right now, or at least not one with experience at the position. So why not Tim Tebow? At first glance he seems to be a natural fit for the type of offense the 49ers ran, and he might be a solid enough replacement if Alex Smith doesn't return.
It's a fun rumor that has no legs. Sorry folks, nothing to see here.

I know Jim Harbaugh favors an aggressive run attack and loves to pound the football with 5-10 yard plays rather than worrying about deep throws and stretching the field with a vertical passing attack, but I don't think he wants a quarterback that struggles to do anything but throw against busted coverage. Tebow fans will have to look elsewhere with regards to his next destination.
