Though a full blown conspiracy by the NFL may be in doubt, the fact that unashamed Christian QB Tim Tebow has not been picked up by any team since he was let go by the N.Y. Jets more than two weeks ago leaves room for speculation. Regardless of whether Tebow has been blackballed from the NFL or not, teams from alternative leagues like the Arena Football League have shown an interest in him.
The co-owner of the Philadelphia Soul, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, says he's interested in offering a job to the free-agent quarterback, according to Sporting News. Tebow has not responded, however. Jaworski reportedly said, "I'd love to have him."
"I haven't heard back from him, and I'm not going to push it," Jaworski said. "If he decides he wants to play Arena Football, we'll make a spot for him." more >>
Did a former Denver Broncos fan sum up the potentially short-lived career of quarterback Tim Tebow more succinctly than any ESPN sports analyst has so far?
"What did Tim Tebow do wrong – nothing," writes Nancy Ickes in her recently published letter to the Colorado Springs newspaper The Gazette.
Despite Ickes emphatically stating that Tebow was not to blame for his primarily bench-warming role on the New York Jets, the former Jets backup to Mark Sanchez was cut by the team last week and is now a free agent. more >>
Former Denver Broncos and NY Jets quarterback Tim Tebow might be in line for an analyst career if he can't find a team to play for next season, some reports have suggested.
The popular Christian football player received disappointing news last week when the Jets decided to release him from his contract, after he struggled for appearances last season. With his prospects of staying in the NFL not looking too big right now, NY Daily News suggested that Fox Sports One and ESPN will move in to offer the 25-year-old star a role as an analyst.
"There is no bigger name on the current Fox Sports roster, no bigger new name it could bring to FS1, than Tim Tebow," NY Daily News wrote. "Fox's college football studio show now consists of Erin Andrews, Eddie George and Joey Harrington. Throw Tebow into the mix and the buzz becomes huge, the sizzle electric. Tebow's loyal flock of eyeballs would follow him, significantly increasing the ratings of a show rarely discussed." more >>
NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, now formerly of the New York Jets, has tweeted a passage from Proverbs about trusting God in the wake of his release from the sports franchise.
"Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight," reads Tebow's only comment about the release so far.
Tim Tebow is no longer on the New York Jets, the team announced on Monday.
Tebow, 25, went from being a starting quarterback who led the Denver Broncos to a playoff run in 2012 to being signed on with the Jets last March where he was mostly utilized for special teams options. While Tebow only completed eight pass attempts, six completions, 32 rushes and 102 yards with no touchdowns for the Jets, head coach Rex Ryan released a statement speaking about the team's appreciation for the 25-year-old who became the third string QB for the team.
"We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow," Ryan said in a statement obtained by ESPN. "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward." more >>
Florida Governor Rick Scott will honor New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow for being a "Great Floridian" during a ceremony on Friday.

The award, which is given to a minimum of two people each year, is "designed to recognize and record the achievements of Floridians, living and deceased, who have made major contributions to the progress and welfare of this state," according to the Florida statute that established the Great Floridians Program. more >>
