(NEW YORK) — Tim Tebow is already thinking about life after professional football.
Tebow, perhaps the most celebrated back-up quarterback in the NFL, is keeping an eye on politics when he decides to hang up his spikes.
Even though he hasn’t done much in his two games with the New York Jets, after briefly gaining more media attention than President Obama and Mitt Romney combined, Tebow told ESPN that he’ll “at least look at and consider one day” running for office.
As for what office he aspires to, Tebow’s keeping that information under his helmet.
A deeply religious Christian whose prayer pose after a score was widely copied following his brief stint with the Denver Broncos last season, Tebow was rumored to have been the surprise speaker at last month’s Republican National Convention, an honor that ultimately went to actor Clint Eastwood and a chair.
