Tim Tebow Apparently Not Trying To Make Football Comeback

 

Tim Tebow may be done with the football portion of his career.

 Playing football, at least.

The former Heisman Trophy winner last suited up in an NFL uniform nearly one year ago, when he played for the New England Patriots in the 2013 preseason before ultimately being cut. Tebow waited the rest of the season, working out in case another team got bit by the injury bug and came calling, but every time there was an opening Tebow was passed by.

Now it appears that Tim Tebow is done with his dream of playing quarterback in the NFL again. There has been no indication around the league that another team wants to give Tebow a chance, and no indication that Tebow is putting himself out there to be picked up. Tebow also doesn’t appear interested in playing anywhere else outside the NFL.

Tebow currently has an outstanding offer from the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League. The team’s new owner, David Siegel, said Tim has a spot on the team waiting for him if he so chooses.

“If anyone knows Tim Tebow, tell him to call me,” said Siegel, CEO of Westgate Resorts, said. “The team number is 844-455-PRED.”

But Tebow has turned down other opportunities to play outside the NFL before. He has had offers from the Omaha Beef, another indoor football team, the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, which hold Tebow’s rights.

Tim even turned down a $1 million offer to play for the Moscow Black Storm in last year’s Russian league playoffs.

Insiders say Tim Tebow wants only one thing — to play quarterback in the NFL. That is the reason he has also resisted attempts to convert him to another position, thwarting the handful of teams interested in making him a tight end or an H-back.

Instead, Tebow has moved on smoothly to the next phase of his career as a college football analyst. He has joined on to help launch the SEC Network with ESPN, and seems to be doing quite well. Last week, Tebow closed on a $1 million home on a golf course in Orlando.

Though he seems content with his new position, Tim Tebow may leave to follow his dream if the opportunity arises. He has an out in his contract in case a NFL team comes calling.

    Tim could use good counsel, and I don’t think jimmy sexton or whatever his agent’s name is, is giving him that.

    An alternate route to his goal might be what, indeed, is meant to be. Perhaps a lesser league such as Arena could use the infusion he would bring. His fans certainly could use that.

    He can coast the rest of his life as an ESPN broadcaster and golfer. But not now, please.

    At some point, I’ll have to stop caring. If he sits another whole year because he’s too good for the Arena league, then that is what he prefers.

      Sage: “At some point, I’ll have to stop caring.” I hear you Sage and like it or not, he hasn’t even begun to show the NFL what he is capable of and that is quite frustrating…I am waiting too for him to have a REAL CHANCE to become what he is destined for which is CONTINUING TO BE A WINNING NFL QB PLUS, WINNING SUPER BOWLS!!! NOT GIVING UP UNLESS I HEAR DIFFERENTLY FROM T2 AND SO FAR THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT HE IS GOING TO DO THAT AT THIS POINT!!

      • Sage says:

        What’s special about Tim is that he possesses incredible will power, and he is likely to win in any competitive setting where he is allowed to perform. Winning in Arena is winning. At some point, winning can’t be ignored.

        I’m tired of the not playing, and I know you are too, CK.

      I tend to think that there are things going on behind the scenes that the average football fan simply isn’t aware of. By virtually all accounts, Tim Tebow has been relentlessly working out and training hard as if he’s starring in the SUPER BOWL the next day. There is no indication whatsoever that Tim Tebow has given up pursuing his NFL dream in the slightest. If there was truly no interest at all, especially after as much time has passed, I don’t think he would be so aggressively keeping up such a training pace. I think it’s all a matter of “timing” — someone, somewhere has told Tim to lay low and work on his craft, and at the appropriate time he’ll be getting the call.

      That being said, while I personally hate to see Tim go to lesser leagues like the Arena or Canadian Football League, I do think that there is a bigger picture Tim (and especially his handlers) should be considering. Imagine if Tim Tebow were to sign with say the Orlando Arena team, or a Canadian Football team — the ratings for those games would go through the roof. Millions of Tebow fans would be scrambling to find what channel carries any game starring Tebow — people who never watched an Arena or CFL game ever in their lives. Tebow, quite literally, could transform either of these leagues by drawing attention to them that they had never had before.

      • Sage says:

        It’s your second paragraph that I particularly agree with. Time to use that power. Maybe the NFL doesn’t deserve it. Don’t waste that power. Time is precious.

      • ck says:

        Todd: Apparently, he received the message b/c he is laying low and, yes, I would watch wherever he went b/c definitely “LIGHTS UP” the field when he plays and you are on the edge of your seat, literally!!! Nothing boring about the games he has played!!!

  2. steftebowfan says:

    Tebow is still working out daily and says he is wanting to return to the nfl. He has never givwn up. I am not sure how good his agent is and if Sexton is out promoting him. I hope someone picks him up soon. How BOUT THOSE COWBOYS?

  3. ck says:

    This guy can’t even get his facts straight…he did not buy a house in Orlando, but Jax! And he must be desperate to be in the spotlight b/c have never heard of this obvious non-newsworthy N. Francis and the pic says it all…hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!:(

  4. JohnnyBGoodman says:

    Anyone who states that Tim Tebow has given up on his NFL dream is either blind or just plain clueless. Nothing could be further from the truth. Tim hasn’t stopped training since being let go from the Patriots. In fact, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if that is precisely the team that he’ll return to the NFL on.Tim and his management are not stupid, and they didn’t just fall off the turnip truck in this game (and business) called football. Tim Tebow is a mega-star and everyone knows it — including the NFL — and how the whole Tebow-mania thing is handled and packaged means bib business for all involved. Don’t believe for a second that Tebow’s NFL story is over, because the writing is on the wall…he’ll be back…and back in a big way. When this happens, it will be huge news, and a great big deal, and it will make the Tebow naysayers spin in their own body fluids.

    I agree with Sage – Tebow needs another agent.

    Roger Goodell and the NFL have decided Tebow does not fit in with the current direction of the NFL for three reasons –

    1 – Tebow does not have a criminal record.
    2 – Tebow goes to church.
    3 – Tebow dates girls.

      Andrea: Now that made me laugh and what a mess the NFL has become when attributes such as these will get you ostracized…so much for standards!!!
