Tim Tebow Denies Northport Rumors

Jets QB says he's never been to the 11768.

Tim Tebow publicly denied rumors that he is moving to Northport during a press conference at the New York Jets mini-camp practice session earlier this month, according to a transcript published on SB Nation.

"I can deny (that). I have never been there," the quarterback told reporters. "It is just another one of those rumors like, 'I am living in Hoboken.'"

Rumors began that Tebow was eying property in downtown Northport after he was reportedly seen enjoying tacos at on June 5. Though Tebow denied having visited our neck of the woods, many, such as Patch reader "Bill," won't deny what their own eyes showed them. "He absolutely was there," he commented on our . "I have a boat at Britannia and saw him and a woman having lunch at the bar."

News 12 also sent out a crew to do a whimsical investigation of the Tebow rumors. "Where's Tebow?" they asked, sporting a poster with the quarterback's picture and writing that said "Have you seen this man?" They inquired at the barber shop, at the village dock--even at Northport Police Headquarters. "It was a lot of fun," said Chief Ric Bruckenthal.

Unfortunately, News 12 didn't unearth any dirt, though Sports Reporter Kevin Maher said via Twitter that they'll keep digging. Despite Tebow's public denial that he is moving to Northport, many residents are saying the contrary. Just take a look at these Tweets:

One thing is for sure: Northport is a long way from Florham Park. What a commute!

Hate to say it...but I will. "I told you so".

So no one got a pic of him in the area? If he was really there, I find that hard to believe!

I saw Tebow and Broadway Joe eating at the Ritz talking about houses off of Bread and Cheese. Earlier in the day, Jim Morrison was spotted buying Elvis a pizza crumb.

Tim Tebow living in Northport never made sense! The Jets practice and play in the swamps of Jersey.

When do we get the Elvis sightings?
