Which sports should Tim Tebow try after baseball?

Tuesday August 9th, 2016

Apparently resigned to the fact that he is a bad quarterback, Tim Tebow has decided to focus his attention on being a bad baseball player

This probably won’t last long. Tebow will hit .170 for the Montgomery Biscuits, decide he’s spent one too many nights at the Red Roof Inn in Biloxi and call it quits. 

But he shouldn’t give up his athletic career just yet. What sports should Tebow try after he washes out of baseball?

The WWE writers can give Tebow the heroic script he always wanted. And he’ll have another excuse to take off his shirt

Timmy has the physique to be a pretty bruising fighter. I’m just worried he’d turn the other cheek every time he got hit.

Plenty of football players have made the transition to rugby, like Maurice Clarett. Nate Ebner of the Patriots is playing for the U.S. in the Olympics. At Tebow’s size, he’d make a good lock or flanker.

Imagine battling against the boards for a loose puck with Tebow. He’d probably be very polite and just let you take it.

Tebow never really was much of a passer, but maybe he’d be a good rebounder.

​Football is a brutal game. Perhaps Tebow would be better suited competing from the comfort of a nice chair.
