Tim Tebow hasn’t been quiet about his NFL future, but his dad wants to make one thing clear: Tim isn’t done.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network asked Bob Tebow, Tim’s dad, about the ESPN the Magazine report that the Tebow camp has accepted that his NFL career is over. And Bob dismissed it as nonsense.
“You are old enough to not believe all you hear,” Bob Tebow said.
Tebow is only 25 and only a year and a half removed from being the starting quarterback on a team that won a playoff team, so it would be surprising if he were ready to walk away from the NFL. He surely still thinks he can play, and whoever the unnamed members of his “camp” are who told ESPN the Magazine that it’s time to move on, it’s hard to believe that Tebow would agree with them.
The question is whether 32 NFL teams think it’s time for him to move on. The fact that he hasn’t had a single opportunity since the Jets cut him a month ago doesn’t speak well for his NFL future.
