The latest Tim Tebow news are mostly rumors, so what better way to catch than to read a roundup!
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, people might be wondering, where is Tim Tebow? The last time he was spotted was in Hawaii vacationing with his sister, and he’s been silent on his Twitter account for months. The rarity of actually seeing Tebow in the flesh has likened him to being the Loch Ness monster of the NFL.
In the absence of real, hard news, various sports writers have taken to using Tim Tebow’s NFL stats to both support and deny his ability to be a NFL QB starter. At the end of the day everyone seems to agree that his stats are average but there’s disagreement over whether or not he belongs back in NFL at all.
Tim Tebow: Philippines Relief Effort
It may not be widely known that the NFL quarterback was born in the Philippines. And, as everyone probably knows by now, his Christian beliefs are very important to him, so much so that he sometimes would skip football training in-between seasons to serve with Christian missionaries. Thus, it’s entirely appropriate he is acknowledging his roots by opening the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City. Plans for the children’s hospital began in 2011 and the former Heisman trophy winner has added donation links to the CURE blog to assist in the recovery from Typhoon Haiyan
The hospital, currently under construction, was not damaged in the typhoon. The children’s hospital project is a joint effort between the Tim Tebow Foundation and CURE International, a faith-based organization that offers programs and hospitals in 29 countries to assist in physical and spiritual healing. Building on the CURE hospital began in February 2012, and the Tim Tebow Foundation has recently announced the facility will be open by summer of 2014. All money collected will purportedly go directly to relief efforts, according to a statement released by the organization. Funds will go to “ministries that align with the foundation’s mission to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.”
Time Tebow NFL Team Offers, Among Other Things…
Tim Tebow has made his desire to continue to play for the NFL loud and clear. Despite this, he has received multiple offers from non-NFL teams. Tim has apparently received calls from LA KISS, an Arena Football owned by rock band KISS, who offered him a three year contract in September. Russian team the Moscow Black Storm offered Tebow $1 million to play two games, which he declined.
There is a current push by Jacksonville residents, fans and even city councilmen to offer Tim Tebow a spot with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But Tim has not shown any inclination to join the team many have called the worst team in the league, and no news of an offer has been officially released. Although, Tebow did open a restaurant in Jacksonville, so his presence will be felt in some manner.
Tim Tebow’s Broadcasting Career?
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports that Tim will look for a college football television job if he receives no further interest from NFL teams. The fact that Tim has hired a broadcast agent hasn’t hurt the rumors either. If the Tim Tebow rumors are true, many speculate this pretty much means he is looking for a college football television job.
Some state that TV is the obvious next step for Tim Tebow and point out that he seems to have a natural talent for being on screen. Despite verbal tics such as repetitiously using fillers like “you know” and “I think,” he has been deemed to have “good camera presence” and shows promise in delivering insightful content to segments. On the flip side, other wonder if Tim is able to offer critique as well as insight and praise and suggesting Mr. Tebow’s personality would pose difficulties in being brutally honest about players when necessary.
Considering all the Tim Tebow news and rumors so far, where do you think the former NFL QB is heading with his career, really?
