On Friday, there was an ESPN Magazine report that members inside of Tim Tebow’s camp believed that his NFL career was over, but it didn’t take long for them to come forward and refute the report. An unnamed source from the Tebow camp told Mike Garafolo of USA Today that there was no truth to the report that there was any belief he would not return to the league. Tebow is currently staying off of the radar and hoping to let the media circus settle, so his camp is doing the speaking for him.
A person who has spoken at length with Tebow about his current prospects for returning to the league told USA TODAY Sports that Tebow isn’t ready to give up, retire or look to head to the Canadian Football League or Arena Football League.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because neither Tebow, his representatives nor his relatives have addressed his situation publicly, was reacting to an article from ESPN the Magazine, citing members of Tebow’s camp saying the former Denver Broncos and New York Jets quarterback has given up on his NFL career.
The person who spoke with Tebow is a member of his camp, and vehemently denied the report.
It is nice to see that Tebow is keeping the faith and staying positive in thinking that his NFL career is not over, but he probably should face reality.
The amount of attention that comes with Tebow being on your team is not worth it for a player with his low level of talent. If he was willing to change positions he could probably find a spot on the roster, but he simply isn’t a player that anyone realistically believes can play the position.
After an unfortunate injury in camp Tebow could potentially find a place to call home, but he shouldn’t be holding his breath.
