Tim Tebow still trying to play in NFL


It looks like the NFL is over the Tim Tebow era and with no calls coming in for his services, he has signed on for the new SEC Network’s two-hour game day show, “SEC Nation.” He will be joined by former LSU and NFL star Marcus Spears, Paul Finebaum and Joe Tessitore on the show.

Even though it looks like Tebow is transitioning into a career in media, he hasn’t given up on a career playing in the NFL.

From the Tennessean:

But he still has hopes of being signed by an NFL team.

He was in town in May for a speaking engagement and while working out at the D-1 Training facility in Cool Springs got several receivers from the Nashville Venom Professional Indoor Football Team to run routes for him for two days.

“I’m training every day and feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been,” Tebow said, the Tennessean. “I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I’m just excited about whatever the future holds. Who knows what could happen? But I’m excited about it, though.”

It seems like we always say, once teams start losing quarterbacks someone will give him a chance. Tebow was signed to the New England Patriots but was cut during the preseason in 2013.Several teams last season went through several quarterbacks because of an injury and none of them were tempted to bring in Tebow in 2013, so why would that change in 2014?

You have to love his optimism and drive though.
