Former Denver Broncos quarterback and outspoken evangelical Christian Tim Tebow is training for a possible NFL comeback, but admits that his future in the NFL is uncertain and that he is putting his faith in God when it comes to his football career.
Tebow, who currently works as an ESPN analyst for the SEC Network, does not consider his NFL career to be over just yet, and is training in Arizona to improve his skills and conditioning. The NFL season is less than two months away, and in spite the uncertainty, the 26-year-old says his faith is powering him through.
"One of my favorite quotes is, 'I don't know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future,'" said Tebow, according to FOX Sports. "And in that it gives you peace to just continue to work and go after what our heart desires and when you do that, you don't have any regrets and I think that's the best way to live life." more >>

The former Denver Broncos quarterback was discussing his new gig as an ESPN analyst for the SEC Network that begins broadcasting in August with the South Carolina vs. Texas A&M game. He told The Tennessean that he is especially excited to serve as an analyst for the SEC Network because it is uniquely different than other college sports networks. more >>
ESPN President John Skipper has partially blamed his sports network for generating a Tim Tebow backlash against the outspoken Christian former NFL player.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Skipper acknowledged that ESPN took full advantage of the ratings juggernaut that was Tebow, 26, even when it began to disadvantage him as a person.
"We gave him a lot of attention. I've said before, we probably overdid it. And that makes people sort of suspicious of him. It's not his fault. He is genuinely a very likable guy," he said. more >>
