Good to know: Urban Meyer says Tim Tebow still ‘hoping’ for another shot in NFL


During a lengthy interview with CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler, Ohio State Buckeyes head football coach Urban Meyer weighed in on the future of one of his star pupils back from is Florida Gators days: Tim Tebow.

Despite not one single team expressing any serious interest in availing themselves of the services of the quarterback since the New England Patriots released him on Aug. 31, 2013, Meyer says Tebow is working hard and keeping himself in shape just in case an NFL team comes calling.

“You’d imagine how he works. Works every day. He’s hoping,” Meyer said. “There are some conversations about it. I don’t know too much. There’s hope and he says there’s stuff going on.”

Meyer did not indicate what these supposed “conversations” consisted of, but for all intents and purposes, shouldn’t most people, including Tebow, assume that he NFL ship has sailed?

Tebow is gainfully employed in football, working as a college football analyst for ESPN, but he reportedly has an out-clause in his contract should an NFL team express interest in him.

First and foremost, he just doesn’t have what it takes to play the quarterback position competently at the NFL level. Second, bearing in mind his deficiencies on the field, the off-the-field distractions just aren’t worth it.

Hopefully, Tebow realizes this and isn’t holding on to false hope every time his phone rings. After all this time, odds are it ain’t going to happen, right? Chances are better that the Rapture comes before Tebow lands on another NFL roster.
