ESPN announced Monday that Tebow had been hired for the new network, which begins broadcasting in August called SEC Nation. The contract has an out clause if an NFL team shows interest in signing him as a player, and Tebow tweeted Monday that he wanted to continue “to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL.”
During a Tuesday conference call, Tebow, 26, said he still trains five days a week. “I feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been as a quarterback right now, and I hope I get the opportunity to show that,” he said.
Tebow said he was excited about the ESPN opportunity, “but who knows what the next few months will hold?”
The always upbeat Tebow was asked whether he could be an objective analyst.
“I would love to continue to be someone that is positive but also be someone that is objective,” Tebow said. “I have never had a hard time saying what I believe or standing up for something, and hopefully, I can continue to be that same person as an analyst and sharing what I believe about players, about teams, about games.”
