Tebow worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars and at the tight end position, multiple outlets reported Thursday. Tebow has not appeared in a professional football game since 2012 with the Jets. He briefly signed with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles before stepping away from football.
He was with the New York Mets’ organization from 2016 to 2019 but failed to make the majors. He started out in the Arizona Fall League and made it all the way to Triple-A — the top tier of minor league baseball. Injuries cut his baseball career short.
He said late last year he would still pursue his baseball dream but formally announced his retirement in February.
Tebow played in 35 games in the NFL. He won one playoff game with the Broncos. He had 2,422 career passing yards and 17 passing touchdowns. He also had 989 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns over the course of his career.
Before he stepped away from football, several teams were reportedly interested in Tebow’s services if he would move to the tight end position. According to the New York Post, Tebow wasn’t exactly ready to switch his position.
