Tim Tebow showed in his first Patriots practice Friday that his passing was spotty but he also can make plays.

"I feel in every situation there's a learning opportunity in life," he said. "Not only in football but everything you do in life. There's ups, there's downs, there's learning opportunities, there's praise, there's criticism. You've got to learn to handle everything."

Right now, he said, he's just trying to learn how to be a New England Patriot. He's thrilled to have the chance to learn from Brady.

"He's one of the best all time and you get to watch him, sit in the meetings and talk to him, come out here and train together," said Tebow.

"You pick up a lot of good things, a lot of good traits.

"I feel we have a good relationship. I feel we've had a good relationship the last few years playing against each other, talking here and there. But I feel it can obviously grow being on the same team."

As the interview ended, Tebow was asked about his future, if this was his last chance to prove he could be an NFL quarterback.

"I'm focused on today, getting better today, not anything that's going to happen down the road, but today," he said. "As a football player, as a competitor you've got to have that attitude."

He already sounds as if he's been a Patriot for years.
