Reporter: How will Tebow be used?
Belichick: We'll see. I don't know.
Reporter: Have you had any conversations with Urban Meyer in the last 48 hours?

Belichick knows answering Tebow questions on a daily basis was part of the deal here. His strategy will be to continue to do what he does: Say nothing, reveal less.
