Tim Tebow Avoids Discussing Jets at Keynote Address, Instead Focuses on Faith, Early Career

Tim TebowAnyone who has watched Tim Tebow knows that hoping for him to say something inflammatory in public is like waiting for pigs to fly. But most would like to hear his take on his recent release from the New York Jets, something he has yet to provide publicly.

Tebow gave an hour-long keynote address at Lake Michigan College on Thursday, but he declined to spend any time discussing the Jets, his release or his plans for the future. The only football talk that found its way into his speech heavy on faith and family were memories of his early playing days in high school and at the University of Florida, with a brief mention of his rookie season in Denver.

The future for the most publicized backup of all time has been very much unsettled since the Jets cut him earlier this year, with team after team very clearly stating that they have no plans on pursing him. The Patriots were the latest such club to shut the door on Tebow, as it was reported that Bill Belichick “hates” him as a player.

It would be a minor shock if Tebow is not playing football somewhere come fall, but his chances of suiting up under center for an NFL team are looking bleaker by the day.

This isn’t the worst first pitch of all time, but… Alright, it might be the worst first pitch of all time.
