Tim Tebow releases statement on ESPN hire, still wants to be an NFL QB


On Monday ESPN announced that they had fired former Florida Gator and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Tim Tebow. He will work as an analyst on their SEC network making his debut during the BCS National Championship game on January 6th.

Tebow tweeted out a statement in three parts thanking ESPN for “this incredible opportunity.” He also took time to mention that he is not done pursuing his career as an NFL quarterback. Tebow of course was last playing for the New England Patriots who cut him during the preseason.

 

In the ESPN press release they say that network will launch in August of 2014. If for some reason Tebow got another shot at the NFL, there is a chance he wouldn’t even be around for the launch.

Of course depending on when the network exactly launch and how that matches up with roster cutting days.
