And with final roster cuts approaching, Kraft is rooting for Tebow to make his team. Kraft has a rooting interest, but he’s not going to tell Belichick what to do. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Tuesday that he is "rooting for" quarterback Tim Tebow to make the 53-man roster but said the decision is up to coach Bill Belichick. Kraft reiterated his belief that Tebow is a very special young man and hes been a real joy to have around here. Kraft added, however, that he’s not the one who will decide whether Tebow is a Patriot this season. "Week to week [in the regular season], you're going to ask the questions, if we don't perform up to standard, why we didn't [perform]," Kraft said. That job falls to head coach Bill Belichick, and Kraft said he trusts Belichick unconditionally. FOXBOROUGH - Though he projects to be the Patriots third-string quarterback if he remains on the roster, there continues to be a great deal of discussion about Tim Tebow.
