The Atlanta Braves have interest in signing former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to a minor-league deal, ESPN’s Pedro Gomez reports.
Atlanta was reportedly one of five major league clubs that met with Tebow individually after his pro workout in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former Broncos and Jets quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is attempting to kick-start his baseball career at age 29, after not playing the sport since his high school days in Florida.
Gomez also linked Tebow to the Colorado Rockies this week.
According to ESPN, 28 of 30 MLB teams attended Tebow’s workout, with the Athletics and Cubs not making the trip. Tebow shagged fly balls and took batting practice, showing enough to garner some pro interest.
