Tebow embracing new job, hoping for NFL call
First Published Aug 06 2014 10:36 pm • Last Updated Aug 06 2014 11:23 pm

Charlotte, N.C. • Tim Tebow still wants — and trains for — another NFL opportunity.

Still, while the 26-year-old free agent quarterback waits for another chance to play professional football, he isn’t about to let a potential dream job pass him by.

Tebow is embracing his latest passion: working as a football analyst for ESPN’s new SEC Network, which debuts Aug. 14.

"I love doing this," an enthusiastic Tebow told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "I want to do this for a long time. I love talking football and I love being around it."

The only thing he doesn’t like is "having to wear this" suit, Tebow said, laughing and tugging at his gray jacket coat. "I’d rather be in shorts."

Or pads.

Tebow said his agent has fielded some calls from interested NFL teams — he declined to name which teams — but added no deal is imminent.

Most NFL teams are two weeks into training camp, so Tebow knows he’s missing valuable time.

Over the past several months he’s been trying to balance learning his new job and staying in peak physical condition in case that call comes. He works out five to six times per week in Los Angeles, Arizona or Florida depending on his busy travel schedule.
