Our newspaper partner the Gaston Gazette is reporting that according to the Orlando Sentinel, former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow met with the Carolina Panthers this week in Mobile, Alabama, the site of this weekend's Senior Bowl.
Tebow also met with the Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings.
According to the newspaper, the meeting with the Panthers was the most formal with a sit-down session with head coach John Fox, general manager Marty Hurney and other assistants.
Tebow's ability to be a pro quarterback has been questioned by many experts since he took most of the snaps at Florida from the shotgun and going under center in the NFL would be a big change for the former Heisman Trophy winner.
The Panthers do not have a first round pick in this year's upcoming draft but Tebow is not projected to be picked until after the first round.
The Panthers enter next season with Jake Delhomme and Hunter Cantwell under contract and Matt Moore likely to return as an restricted free agent.
