ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Tim Tebow insists he'll be a starting quarterback in the NFL someday. In the meantime, he wants to line up anywhere his coaches will let him.

The former Florida star whose adjustment to the pros is taking longer than he and his rabid fan base would like was pressed into duty as a slot receiver for a handful of snaps Sunday when the Denver Broncos' injury epidemic claimed starting wide receivers Brandon Lloyd and Eddie Royal.

A day later, his coach reiterated that Tebow, a third-stringer in his second pro season, is first and foremost a passer.

Some of Tebow's staunchest supporters suggest that while Tebow bides his time at quarterback, his talents could be put to use as an H-back, tight end, wide receiver or even on special teams.
