Tim Tebow staying in shape, hoping for another NFL chance

Tim Tebow was released by the Patriots after a training-camp audition last year.

NFL training camps are getting underway this week, and Tim Tebow is still hoping for a phone call.

Tebow, who said last month he’s not giving up on making it back to the NFL, doesn’t sound like a guy anywhere close to being ready to give up on his dream.

The former Broncos, Jets and Florida Gators player told Phoenix TV station KSAZ that he’s been going from the Performance Enhancement Professionals facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., to Los Angeles, where he works out with quarterback guru Tom House, to work on his skills and conditioning.

“I feel great,” Tebow said. “I feel the strongest, healthiest, throwing the best I ever have. I’m just really excited about the improvement.”

He even allowed the station to shoot video of his workout in Arizona. The video includes a look at something called “Danney Ball” (named for Tebow’s trainer, Ian Danney) — it appears to be a version of beach volleyball, except Tebow and the guys he trains with use a 10-pound medicine ball instead of a regular volleyball.


Tebow was cut by the Patriots before the start of last season and hasn’t been a full-time starter in the NFL since the 2011 season. It appears he’s just about out of NFL chances, but Tebow’s not so sure.

“One of my favorite quotes is ‘I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future.’ And in that, it gives you peace to just continue to work, go after what your heart desires and when you do that, you don’t have any regrets. I think that’s the best way to live life,” Tebow said.

Tebow will serve as an analyst for the SEC Network this fall. That is, unless an NFL club decides it’s ready to give him another shot — his contract with the network includes an out-clause in case the NFL comes calling.

    If the sports media throw Tony Dungy under the bus, then the whole industry is probably lost irretrievably.

    I’m not sticking up for Donald Sterling, but the sports media jumped on him like a pack of hungry wolves, offering no significant insight, and abandoning all restraint.

    Sports journalists want so badly to have moral prestige that they would sacrifice anything for a claim to that, including the joy of sports and the integrity of intellectual thought.

    It’s very distrubing and indicative of an ill society.

    Sage – I agree with you 100% but I use the term “jackals” to describe the sports media.

    The person I really will feel sorry for is the player of the Rams who will be cut so this gay god fraud the media created will get a spot on the team.

    Imagine having a defensive lineman on your team that the punter and qb can outlift and outrep the gay god.

    Interesting that the so-called “Christian” Peyton Manning remains silent while his former Christian coach Tony Dungy is being hammered by the so called tolerant sports media.
