Patriots owner Robert Kraft has had an offseason hasn't he? From Aaron Hernandez arrest to Tom Brady's near-injury to Tim Tebow's release ... his franchise has been in the news. Kraft appeared on CBS News' CBS This Morning Tuesday to discuss the recent concussion lawsuit settlement.

And while he was there Charlie Rose also asked the Patriots owner about Tebow's release -- Kraft says he "very much wanted" Tebow to make the team.

"I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team" Kraft told Rose on CBS This Morning. "If you look at four of the last five years we've only carried two quarterbacks. And when a cut-down time comes you need those last three or four positions for depth and we happen to have I think the finest quarterback in the history of the game and he's not going off the field except by injury. We have a great second-string quarterback. When he came in he came in as the third quarterback and we were all rooting for him.

"And life takes funny turns so no one knows what's going to happen in the future but whatever he does I know he's going to be a great success off the field and I'm rooting for him to get his opportunity on the field as well."

Look having Tom Brady means you don't ever take him on the field. It's good that Kraft knows that. And Tebow showed during the preseason that he's not nearly a capable a backup as Ryan Mallett either.

Over the weekend Tebow tweeted out how thankful he was for the opportunity from Kraft and the Patriots adding that he will work "relentlessly" to try and fulfill his dream of becoming an NFL quarterback. Many don't think Tebow can pull it off and will require a position change to make it in the league.

Kraft isn't one of those many.
