Tim Tebow Will Still Pursue NFL Job While Working For ESPN
Tim Tebow may have a new job as an analyst for the SEC Network, but he still plans to pursue a career as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
Tebow has been hired to be an analyst on the network’s “SEC Nation” show, which will air from various Southeastern Conference campuses throughout the 2014 season. He will also contribute to ESPN’s pregame coverage of the BCS Championship Game on Monday
According to Pro Football Talk, Tebow will continue to train and workout with the plan of securing a NFL contract. Tebow has an out clause in his contract that allows Tebow to leave ESPN to sign a NFL contract.
“I’ll continue to train to be the best quarterback that I can be,” Tebow said when asked about his football future. “I have been training very hard over the course of the last few months five days a week, and I feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been as a quarterback right now, and I hope I get the opportunity to show that. But I’m also looking forward to being part of SEC Nation, and being part of ESPN.”
“I’m not sure what’s ahead of me,” Tebow said. “I’m very excited to have this opportunity with ESPN, and who knows what the next few months will hold.”
