In an interview with Larry King, former Broncos and Jets quarterback Tim Tebow discussed his NFL career, a return to the league and a potential future in politics.

The Broncos drafted Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft. He played two seasons in Denver before joining the Jets in 2012.

Tebow played in 35 career games, the last coming in 2012. He completed only 47.9% of his passes at quarterback, throwing 17 touchdowns against nine interceptions.

Tebow was with the Philadelphia Eagles in training camp last year, but the team cut him before the regular season.

“I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future,” Tebow said about an NFL return. “I talk to a lot of my friends who are in the league and playing and all that. I don’t know [if I’ll come back], we’ll see what doors open. Maybe.”

Tebow also answered if he would ever run for elected office.

“You never know. For me, my greatest passion and purpose is to make a difference. And however I can do that, is what I want to do,” the former Heisman trophy winner said.
