Patriots brass dines with Tim Tebow

Patriots coach Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio conducted a little getting-to-know-you session with draft prospect Tim Tebow on Monday night at a North End eatery, according to a source.

Tebow, the former Florida QB and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, had been in Buffalo, and according to another report, is expected to make stops in Washington and Cleveland. This would qualify as one of the 30 in-house visits the Pats are allowed for draft eligible players.
