Tim Tebow played college football for the University of Florida, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007. Tebow was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and spent two seasons with the team. He also played for the New York Jets in 2012. Additionally, he had preseason stints with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013 and 2015 respectively. As a member of the Denver Broncos, he started the last three games of his rookie season and became the team's full-time starting quarterback beginning in the sixth game of 2011. Despite his success with the Broncoshe compiled a record of 86 as a starting quarterback and lead the team to the playoffs and a playoff win (after they started 1-4)he did not start again in the NFL. Tebows potential as a professional level quarterback was called into question due to a perceived lack of passing ability, persistent fumbles, and having the lowest passing completion rate in the league. In 2016, Tebow announced he would pursue a career in professional baseball and signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets on September 8.

In this Dec. 5, 2014, photo, Tim Tebow speaks during an SEC television broadcast in Atlanta. Tim Tebow will not call himself a retired football player though he could see himself as a future coach. A career in politics is also something that could be appealing down the road. "I think I consider myself someone that is so blessed to do what I love to do and to be around the game of college football and to be able to be part of something that was so much a part of my life since I was a little boy," Tebow said Wednesday, July 27, 2016. "But also I've got a lot of different things going on right now." (AP Photo/Brynn Anderson, File)
