Tim Tebow announced his retirement a few months ago. Even though that was a shock to the world of Baseball, it seems the player isn’t done with sports. To continue his road to NFL, the player is in talks for trying his luck at football.
According to report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Tebow went to the Jacksonville Jaguars with a tryout request. Despite being a center player, Tebow has requested to tryout as a tight end, which highly unusual given his Heisman-winning plays as a quarterback would be a natural place for him to play.
Even though Tebow’s college career was quite impressive, his time as a pro player never really say him gliding through the ranks. In his 3 years long career as a pro, he ended up with the scores of 17 touchdowns and 9 interceptions thrown. That only amounts to a 258 career yards on 361 attempts for a pass.
After he went from playing baseball in 2012, his career ended up with the same trajectory as his football one. While his fans say it’s a little too late to pay heed to their advice of trying the tight end position, maybe he’s feeling at the age of 33 that it’s time to finally live the dream and give his best performance ever. Check out some of the reactions that fans had after getting to know of the report.[Via]
