Tim Tebow isn’t ready to concede that his NFL career is over.
Tebow, who is currently preparing to work the 2014 college football season as an SEC Network analyst, told the Tennessean that he still hopes an NFL team will sign him. If that happens, he’ll walk away from his TV job.
“I’m training every day and feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been,” Tebow said. “I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I’m just excited about whatever the future holds. Who knows what could happen? But I’m excited about it, though.”
Realistically, it’s extremely unlikely that any NFL team will give Tebow a shot. New England was the only team that showed any interest in him at all last year, and he completed just 11 of his 30 passes in the preseason for the Patriots last year.
If Tebow really wants to play football again, he’d have a shot of catching on somewhere in the Arena Football League or the Canadian Football League. But Tebow has shown no interest in that. He can probably make more money doing TV work and making speeches than he could in Canada or Arena ball, and so he’ll keep working on TV. It’s highly unlikely that Tebow will ever play another NFL game again.
