Tim Tebow‘s NFL career is over, according to Tim Tebow at least. The former Heisman Trophy winner, who famously completed 47.3 percent of his passes with the Denver Broncos during the 2010 and 2011 seasons and was on a team that won a playoff game, had a Major League Baseball tryout on Tuesday afternoon. Scouts say it went pretty well, at least as far tryouts for those with little to no experience goes. Chance that’ll lead to a professional baseball career look slim though.
So as it turns out, Tebow is big and strong, but his footwork isn’t great, his delivery is pretty poor, and he doesn’t have a cannon for an arm. Where have we heard that one before?
After saying he was nervous to go through with the tryout, Tebow claimed that the door was completely closed on football. Tebow said that he still loves football, but also said that he loves “hitting baseballs” and that he’s “excited” for the pursuit of a career in the majors. He did, however, say that he’ll always be a part of football “in some way.”
