Tim Tebow makes no secret of his religious faith (remember that Super Bowl ad?), but some of his fellow athletes aren't so enthusiastic. Before an exam at the NFL Scouting Combine, Tebow asked everyone to bow their heads in silent prayer. Another in the room responded, "Shut the f--- up," and got a round of laughter, reports the Pro Football Talk blog at NBC Sports.

"We're not passing judgment on this one," writes Mike Florio. "We're just passing along what we've heard. And it illustrates the type of challenges that could be faced by the team that drafts Tebow."
