Tim Tebow has clause in TV deal that allows for NFL return


Stephan Savoia/Associated Press
Former Broncos QB Tim Tebow is not giving up on returning to the NFL.

Former Florida Gators star quarterback Tim Tebow, whose NFL career began as the 2010 first-round pick of the Denver Broncos and fizzled with his release by the New England Patriots in August, has been hired by ESPN as a college football analyst for the SEC Network.

However, Tebow reiterated via Twitter that he hasn’t yet given up on the dream of playing quarterback on Sundays:

  According to NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport, Tebow has an out-clause in his deal with the SEC Network if an NFL club shows interest. Josh McDaniels, who coached Tebow as his offensive coordinator before he was released by the New England Patriots, has been linked to the open head-coaching job with the Cleveland Browns.

Although the SEC Network doesn’t launch until August, 2014, Tebow will make his debut with ESPN as part of its pregame coverage of the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 6 between Florida State and Auburn. The Auburn offense of coach Gus Malzahn is not unlike the scheme Tebow found national championship success with at Florida while quarterback from 2006-2009.

    If Tebow thought there were any chance of getting an NFL job, he probably wouldn’t bother with ESPN.

    Screw it. Watching him as a “broadcaster” would be like watching Indiana Jones working as a barber.
