Former NFL and baseball player Tim Tebow may be back in the NFL, and if he does make his comeback, it will be with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
When the high profile Christian athlete Tim announced his retirement from baseball in February after a run as a Mets minor leaguer, it looked like his sporting career was over for good. But like many athletes, the thought of retirement has clearly not sat well with him. The former Jets and Broncos quarterback, assuming he makes his NFL comeback, will reportedly play as a tight end.
Sports media reports have suggested the former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback is in talks with the Jaguars.
Tebow, who was married in 2020, was the keynote speaker at the 2021 March for Life in Washington as the event was forced to go virtual for the first time in its history.
Tim Tebow told of how his mother delivered him despite being encouraged to abort him. He went on to play in the NFL after winning the Heisman Trophy, the award given to college football’s most outstanding player.
“Because of her pro-life story, I now get to share my story,” he said. “But it’s only because my mom gave me a chance. We can endure whatever hardships we face because people, because humanity, because loving people is worth it.
“We can choose the best interests of other people, and we can act on their behalf. We need to be on a rescue mission for them.”
Neither Tebow or the Jaguars have released an official statement.
Last year, Tebow joined professional surfer Bethany Hamilton in calling for an end to human trafficking, using his 33rd birthday to draw attention to one of the hidden challenges the world faces.
