"It's good to see a Gator in the building," Spikes said. "I was happy for him. He got to get his job back and ... come out here and compete, so that's good to see him smile, that big smile I'm used to seeing the last few years down in Florida."

Hernandez caught 111 passes in three years as Tebow's college teammate and was surprised when the Patriots signed him.

"I was a little shocked and I was happy because we had a long relationship in college and it's good to play with a college teammate again," Hernandez said. "Great teammate. Great leader."

Brady is still one of the NFL's best quarterbacks, so there will be no quarterback controversy as there was in New York, where fans clamored for Tebow to replace a struggling Mark Sanchez.

On the Patriots, he's merely a player looking to compete for a roster spot.

"It's going to be a lot of fun," Tebow said. "I'm looking forward to working hard every single day and getting a lot better and learning under some great people. So that's all I got, but thank you all so much and God bless. I'm sure we'll be talking more soon."
