In his defense, they probably didn't even know Tebow was there, but I agree that it comes off as him wanting to "witness." If you're Tebow, why not just go over to the team yourself and if it turns into a speech, cool, if not, at least he got to give a quick hats off to them like any other person that doesn't think "I'm kind of a big deal..."
