Former Florida Gators QB/NFL QB/New York Mets outfielder Tim Tebow was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday.
Tebow was trying to make the team as a tight end. But his first preseason action didn’t go very well, as he whiffed on several block attempts.
This is likely the end of Tebow’s NFL dream. He was attempting a comeback under his college coach, Urban Meyer. If Tebow can’t make a team under Meyer, it’s unlikely he’ll make a team under anyone else.
Now that Tebow’s NFL career appears to be officially over, he’ll likely return to his job as an SEC Network analyst.
However, that’s probably not what Tebow wants to do for the rest of his career — otherwise, he wouldn’t have tried his hand at baseball and playing football as a tight end.
So what other careers could Tebow try?
Here are five that I think the former Gator should give a shot.
Despite Tebow’s terrible blocking attempt in the Jaguars’ preseason game this week, he’s still a guy who loves contact. Tebow made his name on powering through defenders at Florida. There’s no doubt he was a tough quarterback that would leave it all on the field.
Outside of football, there’s not a major sport that involves more contact than hockey. Though I’m not sure Tebow knows how to skate. Perhaps he’d be best suited to be a goalie in the NHL.
It seems like a litany of celebrities and ex-athletes are trying their hand at boxing these days. Can you imagine the pay-per-view draw that a Tebow fight would get — especially if it was against another prominent celebrity/athlete??? I bet Tebow wouldn’t shy away from a boxing match. And we know he’s as competitive as it gets.
If Tebow wants to continue on in the NFL, maybe he should try the referee route. He obviously knows the game after playing it for so long. And he might be the purest athlete to ever play the sport. He’s a guy that would try his best to make the right call in every situation.
And let’s not forget that Tebow is ripped. He could be the new Ed Hochuli.
College Strength Coach
I think one reason that Tebow wanted to play baseball and try the NFL again is because he misses being part of a team. While his playing days have likely passed him by, maybe he could join a coaching staff as a strength coach. Tebow has remained in great shape through the years, so he definitely knows what works with nutrition and weight lifting. And I have to imagine he’d be an inspiring presence on the sideline.
There probably isn’t a region in the United States that loves Tebow more than the south.
So maybe Tebow needs to try a sport that’s centered in the south.
NASCAR was born in the south. And its biggest fan base still remains in the south. I think NASCAR fans would immediately attach themselves to Tebow.
And he’d be a dream for sponsors.
Now, can he drive? Probably not. But according to NASCAR fans, neither can half the field on any given Sunday.
