The New York Mets have signed former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, the team announced on Thursday. Tebow worked out for 28 out the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30, showing impressive power, running the 60-yard dash and doing outfield drills. He hasn't played organized baseball since his junior year in high school. The Heisman Trophy winner spent six seasons on various NFL rosters, although he hadn't appeared in an NFL regular season game since 2012 when he was a member of the New York Jets. Here are some classic "Tebow Time" photos.
