Midway through the season, former Broncos and Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is still unemployed. With no job in the NFL in sight, he has hired prominent broadcast agent Nick Khan of CAA to join Jimmy Sexton in representing him, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports.

Tebow has been adamant about his interest in continuing to play in the NFL, but has garnered no interest from teams since New England released him earlier in the year. This is the first public indication Tebow may be moving on from the NFL.

He had success as a quarterback in college, receiving the 2007 Heisman Trophy and getting drafted in the first round by Denver in 2010. He struggled with the Broncos, but put up a memorable performance during their 29-23 AFC wild card victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012.

Denver traded him to the New York Jets, where he spent most of the season on the bench. New England picked him up briefly, but released him before the start of the season.

Tebow sounds like a 12 year old when interviewed. Lacks any presence of masculinity. Only Gator fans would appriciate his commentary. . "I'm excited" in every sentance. Not a hater just telling it like it is.t

He has zero personality on cameras all of his interviews are pretty cringe worthy.

Tim Tebow has the overall talents but the NFL style of play just could set up enough plays that would adapt to his talents. He is a very good athlete with all the right tools to play somewhere in the NFL league.

I really don't care what your superstitious beliefs are, just please, don't subject me to them every time you are in the public eye. i don't care what your political, religious, or social views are. Do your job well and shut up.

Jimmy Sexton: it's the wrong Kahn , you big dummy! Tebow: get an agent that has the communication skills necessary

to deal with these GMs. The one you have now has done a lousy job, the clock is ticking my boy, your obvious loyality

to him is admirable but it's costing you your NFL career.

How would Tebow add ANYTHING constructive to the relevant or controversial football topics of the day? 
 

Tim Tebow on the Incognito/Martin situation:  "I find all this drama exciting. I hope both players find the peace they deserve.  Maybe if they just trusted in god this would all work itself out."

Tebow could try just about anything and be better at it than football.

He could have been an incredible TE (Tight end) for any team,he has the intangibles of a Gronk/Graham type of TE,but his stubbornness is the reason why his NFL career failed.Eric crouch was another who won the Heisman but was drafted as a wideout,he also was adamant on being a QB but at least tried different positions.Tebow could have still made millions but he was too gung ho on his college career translating into the NFL.

So this dummy has offers from the CFL and the Arena League and he's going to pass to go into broadcasting? 

If he really wanted to play and to be competitive he would take what he can get. 

This guy is a total imbecile!

It's interesting to read comments along the lines that Tebow didn't get his chance.  He spent two years in Denver then was traded for a mid-round draft pick, as Denver no longer wanted him.  He spent a year with the Jets, who then attempted to trade him, but didn't receive a single offer and ended up releasing him.  He spent a preseason with the Patriots, who didn't want him and released him.  Then there's been at least 15 QBs signed as backups this season and none of those teams wanted Tebow.  NFL teams don't want him because they don't think he is good enough to even be an effective backup.  4 years in the league and no one wants him.

I've been saying for several weeks that this is where Tebow will eventually.  I expect that he will go on to a very successful, lucrative career in announcing.   His time in the NFL is over.

I love what Tebow stands for, but he is still being stubborn about not changing positions. He could be so valuable as an H-back, running back and short-yardage QB, and being used in certain situations. Heck, he has running ability, and teams could use that. Yet, he won't do it. He signed his own death warrant as far as his career.

Tebow has won more games in the playoffs than Peyton has in Denver.  He also has a better winning playoff percentage over his career than Peyton does.  What he accomplished in Denver was incredible.

I could endure watching him play, however badly.   It's the stupid, moronic things he says that I find offensive.

@DonnIrving Yeah, he's so amazing that the league adapted to the other 1,499 players but couldn't adapt to his playing style.  Like, receivers couldn't adapt to catching passes in the dirt or 4 yards over their heads.

@OwenCaterwall3  Every celebrity out there projects onto the public their personal political, religious & social views. It's what they do. They all use their celebrity as their platform. Tebow can do as he pleases. If you don't want to listen, then don't. BTW, we don't really care what your views are.

@chris o Uh, except Gronk, Graham, Davis, Witten, Gates etc etc etc are all bigger, faster, more athletic and have been playing TE for years now.

Lolz Peyton and Tebow do not belong in the same sentance unless it included Yin and Yang. Did you watch the NE game....Tebows last start? Set the bar for atrocious QB play in a playoff game.

@heardhimsay Yeah. I remember Brett Bielema coming into the SEC at Arkansas and saying he had a better Big 10 recored than Sabin. So what?

@heardhimsay Trent Dilfer is a super bowl winning qb,is he as good as Manning? When ppl bring up dumb stats like you did,it just proves you know nothing. Since you care so much about him,get him to play the right position,so you can keep kissing his butt.

@heardhimsay Poor Tim,  unfortunately his insane cult following is preparing to doom him yet again, with baggage like this, he has a long battle ahead of him no matter what he pursues next.

@heardhimsay   That may be the most irrelevant and ridiculous comparison of all-time. What point do you even think you're making with that?  That Tebow was somehow a better NFL QB than Peyton Manning? LMAO...  This is news to morons like yourself who think that QB is the only position on the field in football-- but there ARE 52 other guys on an NFL roster, and they all play a part in whether a team wins or loses. 

What Tebow accomplished in Denver was a fluke. If Tebow was such a great QB, he'd have a job as a QB.

Cool

@heardhimsay Was it really all him?  Are you telling me that the defense had nothing to do with the Bronco's success that year?  Are you saying the O line didn't do an incredible job in protecting their QB?  I have a feeling you don't understand the concept of team, and might have a little crush on Tebow.  If not for basically a hail mary throw and catch, Manning would have won.. but he was on the bench, watching his defense.. just like Tebow had to do.

@jdane i'm curious about what those things he said are.  seriously, i just haven't heard him say things that are really outrageous.  maybe he has.  i don't know.  and, while i'm sure i don't agree with everything the guy stands for,  is it not equally stupid/moronic/offensive to explicitly state that  someone's values or beliefs are stupid/moronic/offensive?

@jdane Maybe you should do a wiki on Tebow and read about his accomplishments. The list of "pro style" first round QB's that are no longer playing is extremely long. The majority of those QB's do not have the resume that Tebow had coming out of college.

@Katherine @OwenCaterwall3 TT can do whatever he wants. And the rest of us have the choice to ignore him.  Which, as it turns out, the NFL is doing now.

@matt37 @jerry.redmond37 Tebow is far better than 1/2 of the starting QB's in the league right now, and better than just about all the back ups. So many of them are pathetic, they don't win games, never led their teams to the play offs, throw more interceptions than TD's, etc. Shall I continue?

Add to the list Tebows foundation. He helps kids with cancer here and abroad. Both thumbs up for Tebow on this front. This is the road he should take.

matt37

@kj4027 @jdane What's your point?  Surely what you said doesn't take away from the fact that TT is a horrible professional QB.  Or should I say "WAS" a horrible professional QB.

@Katherine @matt37 @jerry.redmond37 CAN you continue?  By this flawed logic of Tebowmaniacs, Mark Sanchez must be a top-5 quarterback, right Katherine?  After all, he "led" the Jets to the AFC Championship his first 2 years in the league.  He "won" more games and more playoff games than TT ever did. 

Another tebow disciple that has no idea what they're talking about.....

Please continue. He's not on a team for multiple reasons. Jax has nothing to lose and they don't want him. He is terrible. The whole country watched on as NE 29th ranked defense shut Tebow down. He was atrocious. Last start no more chances.

@Katherine Please enough already. If he was that good he would be on a NFL team. He had a good run with Denver and he should be happy with that.
