Former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow said that a career in politics would “be intriguing” during an interview on Fox & Friends on Tuesday.

During the appearance on Fox, host Ainsley Earhardt asked Tebow if he had thought about becoming involved in politics. 

“It's been crazy, hasn't it? It’s been a whirlwind watching everything,” Tebow said via Fox Sports. “You know, I don't know in this time in my life, but if there's a chance you can make a difference some day in something, then that would be intriguing."

Tebow retired after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 5. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 25th pick of the 2010 draft, leading the team to divisional round of the 2011–12 playoffs. 

Despite his popularity, Tebow struggled in the NFL, making just 14 starts in his career.
