NFL: Done with Jets, 6 job possibilities for Tim Tebow


< Previous Page


Tebow has also spent time this offseason working out in Tampa with a fellow lefty and former Buccaneers (and Jets) quarterback: Vinny Testaverde.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Sure, it’s a long shot, but Tebow wouldn’t be brought in to challenge Tom Brady, of course.

Bill Belichick has a knack for bringing in players that other teams discard — Wes Welker, Danny Woodhead, Randy Moss, Corey Dillon, Aqib Talib — and reviving their careers in New England. Tebow has always said he just wants to win, and the Patriots have sure done their share of that. So, playing on special teams — and perhaps as a fullback/tight end — and being a mere piece to the puzzle could satisfy Tebow if the W’s pile up.

Two other factors to consider: Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow out of Florida while he was the coach in Denver, and being able to tweak the Jets always makes Belichick grin a little under his hoodie.

MONTREAL ALOUETTES

The Alouettes hold exclusive negotiating rights to Tebow in the CFL, where some think he might ultimately end up.

There’s some debate, though, whether his game might be better suited there as a quarterback. With the CFL’s wide-open fields and pass-heavy offenses, Tebow’s run-first approach could further expose his passing deficiencies. But, he somehow seems to make things happen — when he actually gets some snaps — and might be able to run all over the place in Canada.

He could also consider the recent offer made by Brett Bouchy, the owner of the Orlando Predators who’d love to see Tebow playing in the Arena League.

LECTURE CIRCUIT

This will always be an option for the ultra-popular Tebow, who attracts huge crowds whenever and wherever he speaks at churches and events. He’s not shy about sharing his strong Christian beliefs, and his multitude of fans extend far beyond the football field.

Tebow is extremely active with his Tim Tebow Foundation, trying to help and inspire people around the world. When Tebow is done playing football, which he doesn’t believe will be anytime soon, he could surely turn appearances as a motivational speaker into a full-time gig.
