It’s almost been a full season since we’ve seen Tim Tebow in an NFL uniform on Sundays. The incredible heroics of the former Florida Gators quarterback have not even touched the league this year, and to many, it’s a shame. It is no question that everyone misses “Tebow Time”, and sure enough, he will be back in 2014.
All of this talk of Tebow joining a sports network is preposterous, and the offer from the Italian American Football team is just a slap in the face. How can this guy really be out of an NFL job for good? Exactly — he won’t be for long.
To put it simply, Tebow is a cash cow. He is someone you can put on your roster to immediately increase ticket sales, not to mention “Tebow” jersey sales. Let’s not forget that the top-selling jersey in the NFL was Tim Tebow’s for almost over two years.
But beyond the business aspect of Tebow, he is a true competitor and incredibly talented, regardless if he can throw a perfect spiral or not. He puts his blood, sweat and tears into each and every down on Sundays, something a lot of players just don’t do anymore whether they are worried about their health or an expiring contract.
Everyone wants a teammate like Tebow, as he is a professional by all senses of the word, and can lift the spirits of any player on a roster and keep them chugging throughout even the worst of seasons. His on and off-field success cannot be forgotten, and to an NFL organization this offseason, that success will be enough of a reason to take the chance on the star. Look for a Tebow comeback in 2014.
