Did you miss Monday's edition of "NFL Total Access" on NFL Network? Catch up with this recap:
McNabb on the best fit for Tebow
Donovan McNabb believes Tim Tebow would be a good fit with the New England Patriots because Bill Belichick could use him in "Wilcat" packages. McNabb added that Belichick at one point wanted to draft Tebow out of Florida. Also, McNabb thinks that the Houston Texans could be another good fit. The move would give the Texans added dimensions to their rushing attack.
Kluwe on Collins coming out
Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe checked in via phone and said he thinks the NFL would be very accepting of gay athletes because the locker room is such a "tight-knit community." Kluwe's comments comes in light of NBA center Jason Collins revealing Monday in a Sports Illustrated article that he is gay. Kluwe added that he doesn't think it matters what a player's sexual orientation is, as long as they're good enough to play in the NFL. One of Kluwe's main arguments for players coming out is that he thinks gay players might play at a higher level if they felt the supported of their teammates.
Mathieu's contract situation
McNabb doesn't think it would be fair for Tyrann Mathieu to get a contract from the Arizona Cardinals with no guaranteed money. McNabb thinks Mathieu is a great addition who will contribute at a high level for the Cardinals.
McNabb thinks Mathieu most will likely play in the nickel sub-package and return punts.
Shaun O'Hara believes Mathieu needs to abide by the NFL's personal conduct policy, and added that Mathieu needs to have some form of guaranteed money if he's going to play for the Cardinals.
A rookie impact
McNabb believes Geno Smith will be the first quarterback in this draft class to start an NFL game because he thinks that the New York Jets will want to make the switch from Mark Sanchez.
O'Hara believes it will be EJ Manuel because he has the "path of least resistance." O'Hara added that the Buffalo Bills' new coaching staff will most likely want to build around Manuel.
Freeman on the hot seat?
OâHara believes that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman has had a relatively successful career thus far and will continue to be the starter for. He added that Mike Glennon is more of a project than an immediate starter. Therefore, Freeman should not feel threatened by the addition of Glennon. McNabb echoed O'Hara's arguments.
