INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Broncos coach John Fox says Brady Quinn’s
apology to Tim Tebow shows the two have a close relationship
Fox’s comments came Thursday at the NFL’s annual scouting
combine in Indianapolis. Quinn reportedly said Tebow had a “lot of luck” and that the way Tebow expressed his faith didn’t seem humble to him. He later apologized. Fox say there is no rift between the two Denver quarterbacks. He says the two were good teammates and attributes the comments to getting “lost in translation.” Fox also believes the apology
presents a more accurate portrayal of Quinn that the comments
attributed to him. With only two quarterbacks on the roster, Fox says the team will look to add two more quarterbacks before training camp.
