Tim Tebow’s NFL return is either heralded with angels blowing horns or bemoaned by critics spitting on his throwing motion, depending on whether you are a Tebow fan or not. But the former NFL quarterback is not giving up hope despite admitting he will be perfectly happy with where he currently is at.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, multiple Arena Football team owners have been offering to make Tim Tebow’s return to football a reality. There’s also those who believe that Tebow should go to Canada’s CFL, but he continues to hold out for the NFL dream while working with the SEC Network.
Fans had a glimpse of hope recently when Tim revealed that his agent had received a few calls from “interested” NFL teams, although the way it was said it did not seem like he was getting ready to hit the field. We also do not know who exactly has been talking to Tebow about a NFL job, but Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was full of praise:
“I’m a big fan of his and he knows it. He has always given me fits when I’ve had to coach against him. He’s a playmaker and he plays a different kind of football. All the guy has ever done is win…. He’s one of those guys if you were struggling at quarterback, hey, why wouldn’t you give him a shot?”
Jim Theismann would disagree. When the former quarterback was asked why has not a NFL team picked up Tim Tebow, he was rather blunt:
“Tim can’t throw the football accurately enough to compete at this level.”
Theismann did soften the blow by saying that Tebow was a “fantastic human being,” although he did criticize the other former QB by saying Tebow should have negotiated a better exit package with the Denver Broncos, the New York Jets, and the New England Patriots. Tebow is taking such criticisms seriously and has apparently been working on his much-criticized throwing motion in Los Angeles. He’s also been working out with trainer Ian Danney at Performance Enhancement Professionals in Scottsdale, Arizona.
But Tim Tebow won’t let such talk get his spirits down. Despite not being on the field, he enjoys just talking about the action with the SEC Network:
“I love doing this. I want to do this for a long time. I love talking football and I love being around it. I don’t like to talk hypotheticals. I deal with the real life situations. I treat every day as a blessing. And it’s a blessing to be here doing what I’m doing.”
Do you want to see Tim Tebow back in the NFL as a quarterback? If so, which team?
