Tim Tebow has risen from the dead. No, an NFL team hasn’t decided to give him one last chance under center. The closest thing we’ve seen to Jesus Christ on the football field is now preparing for a second career on the baseball diamond.
Brodie Van Wagenen, who is co-head of CAA baseball and will be representing Tebow, released a statement regarding his intentions, via Ken Rosenthal:
This is a classic case of Timmy trying to put the pressure on an NFL team to sign him now before he gets “too deep” in his baseball career and is gone forever. It’s a Hail Mary move if I’ve ever seen one.
I don’t believe in much, but I believe in Tim Tebow. The man became a college football legend and inexplicably led the Denver Broncos’ late-season surge into the playoffs and even won an NFL playoff game while possessing an arm I trust less than both presidential candidates.
Is there any doubt that Tebow will turn into a modern day Eddie Harris from Major League in the clubhouse? Plenty of “have you considered making Jesus your lord and savior?” and endless amounts of “are you trying to say Jesus Christ can’t hit a curveball?” debates.
I’m curious to hear what position he plans on trying to play. My guess is shortstop. Why? Because he has absolutely no right being there — just like quarterback. Tebow never makes things easy on himself and we’ve already seen his stubbornness to play anywhere other than a celebrated position in football. By stubbornness, I mean what the man above tells him he is meant to do. Don’t blame Tebow. He’s just out here trying to do the lord’s work. Do you want to be the manager that prevents that?
If Tebow wanted back in the headlines this bad, then he should have just resurrected Harambe from the dead.
Swing away, Timmy..
