(COLUMBIA, S.C.) — Even though Tim Tebow has signed on to be an analyst with ESPN, he still has the goal of playing quarterback in the NFL again.
The former Heisman Trophy winner signed a deal on Monday to join ESPN’s SEC Network. He will become a regular on the network’s pregame show starting in August.
Despite his new job, Tebow isn’t giving up on his old one. Even though he was cut by the New England Patriots before the season started, he still hopes to play in the NFL again.
“I feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been as a quarterback right now. I hope I get the opportunity to show that,” Tebow said. “But I’m also looking forward to being part of ‘SEC Nation’ and part of ESPN.”
Tebow is one of the most decorated players in college football history. Along with his Heisman Trophy, he helped lead Florida to two National Championships while at the school from 2006-2009.
He helped lead the Broncos to the AFC West title in 2011, but was seldom used in his last season in the NFL back in 2012 with the New York Jets.
