Tim Tebow News: QB Is Missing In Action, Where Is Tebow Now?

Tim Tebow Rumors Say QB Is Missing In Action, Where Is Tebow Now

Tim Tebow rumors continue to mount in the news after the injury to Sam Bradford and many people are wondering, where is Tim Tebow?

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the latest Tim Tebow rumors claim the St. Louis Rams could make an offer.

But Tim Tebow news updates tend to tread that familiar path lately. Sports writers know that Tim Tebow rumors draw in readers so they write them even if they’re unlikely to be true at all.

For example, Deadspin.com points out that the latest Tim Tebow Rams rumor was started by Mike Silver of NFL.com. The truth is that the St. Louis Rams’ only other quarterback is Kellen Clemens, leaving them without a second backup if the injury to Sam Bradford turns out to be great enough to keep him off the field for the foreseeable future. So the Rams will of course discuss signing up free agent quarterbacks, who happen to include Matt Leinart, Byron Leftwich, and Trent Edwards, not just Tim Tebow.

Even the original NFL.com article points out that “it is highly unlikely [the St. Louis Rams] will actually sign [Tim Tebow].” But Tim Tebow is made the focus because it’s well known Tebowmania will still stoke a fire among his many fans.

Some people are saying Tim Tebow sightings are becoming like Tupac or Elvis sightings. Tim Tebow is so famous that even media companies traditionally focused on following Kim Kardashian around are sending their people after Tim Tebow’s shadow. If Tim Tebow were to swim in Loch Ness, I think some reporters might have a conniption.

It seems like no reporter has managed to get hold of Tim Tebow in person for weeks. TMZ did spot Tim Tebow vacationing in Hawaii, but that’s about it.

And, no, before you ask that’s not Tim Tebow’s girlfriend, which is yet another subject of media fascination. That girl spraying suntan lotion on Tim Tebow’s glorious back is his sister. But Tim Tebow can’t even be friends with a member of the opposite sex without someone claiming the woman might be a girlfriend.

So, where is Tim Tebow amid all this controversy anyway? He’s turned down offers from Russia and said he won’t do the CFL. Part of the problem is that Tim Tebow’s NFL dreams are dependent on being a quarterback since he’s also turned down offers for other positions. But even the Jacksonville Jaguars don’t want him.

The closest clue we have to where Tim Tebow is at the moment, and what he’s planning, comes from close friend David Nelson, who played with Tebow at Florida and is now with the Jets:

“Tim Tebow still truly believes he can play and compete at the NFL level. I talked to him a few weeks ago. He’s still in shape. He’s ready to go.”

When Nelson was asked why Tim Tebow isn’t playing in the NFL, he said it was basically down to politics:

“I wish I could put my GM hat on. I think a big part of it, and this isn’t Tim’s fault, but he’s a polarizing figure. GMs don’t want that media attention. I can’t speak for Tim, but I think he’s going to keep pushing to get back into the NFL and not go to the CFL or Arena. I think Tim feels the same way I do. It’s hard to play in the NFL the way he did, win in the playoffs, do big things and then take a step back and play in the CFL. That’s a step down. I don’t see him doing that.”

With Tim Tebow news and rumors running dry, what do you think the former NFL quarterback should do with his career?

    He's no Payton Manning, but has won more playoff games for Denver then Payton.
    He deserves a shot so at least it can be put to bed one way or another.

  2. Raymie Sherring

    He deserves another shot?

    Why exactly? He got another shot with The Patriots and was absolutely abysmal! He is even to arrogant to go to the CFL and try and refine his skills for a year or two. Just look at Kurt Warner and the road he took to get to the NFL, in my opinion Tim Tebow could learn some humility from Warner. Do you actually think he is going to step back into the NFL and play for a team that is not even half as good as the Patriots and suddenly shine? I don't think so.

    Tebow has to realise that not all dreams come true and it is time to stop chasing his.

  3. Raymie Sherring

    What does it matter when they play? He has already stated that he will not play for either league.

    It is quite obvious you are a rampant Tebow fanboi and feel the need to defend him and that's fine, but please at least try to bring some quality discussion to the table rather than opening with "Who are you? Hello" as such comments make me question your intelligence level.

    Just sign the man… start him and give him a chance… there is no way he is as bad as half the nfl quarterbacks out there…

    What Tebow did for the Broncos was come in & take them to playoffs. Jets never gave him a decent chamce to plsy. Jets would bring him in to move the ball then bring in Sanchez in the red zone to only fumble, be sacked or intercepted.this is ehere Tebow excells. No one has given Tom the chance 2
    (Jets wanted him only do they wouldn't have 2 play against him) .Tim is relentless athelete who will give his all to win and he is optimistic, enthusiastic . We he gave "The Promise" to
    gator nation – I believe that promise is 4 everytime he pickd up the ball. Which NFL teams have the faith to step up, sign Tim and be a winninh team. I BELIEVE!

  6. Sandy Payne

    Pats would have kept Tim, but they did not want 3 QBs. Tim is not "chasing" a dream -he is in relentless pursuit. Big difference. When given the chance to play – he will move that ball
    one way or another. He doesn't need another chance- Tim needs a team
    that will give him a DECENT opportunity to play the game he loves. Tim is a winner on & off the field – how about you! I Believe in dreams & goals & Tebow!
    to give

    we need a real quarter back in the Vikings. Tebow needs to move to Minnesota.

  8. Dee Fitzgerald

    I hope he is able to move on and be successful in another field or go to Hollywood where he
    belongs and give the NFL the finger like they have given him.

    When are people gonna get a clue and look at the "John 3:16" written under his eye? THAT'S IT! That's ALL of it. He took a 1-4 piss poor team and being the ONLY personnel change, turned them into the conference champ and winner of the first playoff game in Denver in 6 years. The rest is just deception and pretense. He's the only QB in NFL history to play the majority of games in a season, win a playoff game and get canned. Bob Lee was the only one that would have any parallel during the 1976 season. He, however, was a backup for hall of fame QB, Fran Tarkenton. There were plenty of offers for Lee afterward. I've been watching the NFL since 1964 and I've never seen the likes of it..
