Tim Tebow has a big fan in Chuck Norris

By Vinnie Iyer Sporting News

Tim Tebow, free-agent NFL quarterback, has a big fan in Walker, Texas Ranger.

With Tebow still looking for a job in football, actor/marital arts legend Chuck Norris has written him a recommendation letter of sorts. In a column for a non-profit site called Newsbusters, Norris posted a column endorsing Tebow as what he calls a UCP: An Ultimate Clutch Player.

“Tebow is a player who rises to the occasion and delivers big in critical moments,” Norris wrote. “He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts.”

Norris also suggests that the Jacksonville Jaguars should sign Tebow, although the organization and its diehard fans don’t have any interest in Tebow playing for the team. He points out the usual facts, that Tebow is a winner “plain and simple” from the University of Florida who hails from the state of Florida. To make his point clearer, he says if the Jaguars go for Tebow, they would be meeting the challenge of words Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

While Tebow, the former New York Jets and Denver Broncos player, still has many fans, there’s little interest among NFLs team to add him at this point in the offseason. No word if Tebow is working out with Total Gym to keep himself in game shape.

    Vinnie Iyer is still writing? He must have earned big bucks for that piece.

    A link to the entire Chuck Norris blog below… I don’t actually agree that the Jacksonville Jaguars is the best place for Tim… I know you love him there… and the Jags need Tebow, but there is no platform there for him to succeed and he cannot afford another bad team situation… I’m glad I don’t have to make those decisions for him… and this is a good read all the same.

      Thanks, Lynn. I’d call this a ‘must read.’

      Among the good quotes: “No warrior can prove his worth if kept from the battlefield.”

    if I ruled the NFL, Tebow would be starting in Arizona or Cleveland, or backing up Brady.

  4. TEBOW IS A WINNER
    HOPE HE CAN GET ON A GOOD TEAM
    THE JETS ARE LOSERS GLAD HE AWAY FROM THEM
    THANKS CHUCK FOR BEING A TEBOW FAN.

    I see NFL AM and Sports Center Tebow is the brunt of jokes because of Chuck Norris. Just another way for Tim to be in the media and be bashed at the same time. I know Chuck Norris meant well but all it did was fuel the haters fires.

    I get so tired of the jokes and demeaning statements being made about Tebow. I have kept away but just happened to have it on and now I know why I quit watching these shows.

      Tebow is the brunt of jokes…

      Another way for Tim to be in the media and bashed…

      I know Norris meant well…

      All it did was fuel the hater’s fires…

      And what happens to Tebow in the press when his fans boycott the NFL?
