Tim Tebow, a former teammate and opponent of Tom Brady, talks about the New England Patriots quarterback Thursday prior to the Syracuse Mets’ game against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Tebow competed against Brady between 2010 and 2012 when he played for the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. The players then briefly were teammates in 2013 during during Patriots training camp.

“I have so much respect for Tom,” Tebow told reporters, per FOX Providence’s Yianni Kourakis. “… He treats everyone the same. That means a lot to me. … sometimes when people have that much success, they can treat people differently, and he’s very humble that way.

“One of the things as an athlete I respect so much about him is he’s his best when it’s needed the most. I think there are very few athletes you can say that about, but for the great ones, I think you have to say that. … That’s one of the things I love about his game because very few people are like that.”

Nice touch with the song in the background. 

I think Tom takes Tim’s breath away.
