Tim Tebow wants to play football as a quarterback. Which is just fine if he doesn't want to have a chance to play in the NFL again. No NFL team -- not even the Jets any longer -- wants to mess with Tebow the quarterback and the throng of media that follow him everywhere he goes, tracking his every breath. He has gotten offers to suit up in other professional leagues, but Tebow seems set in his ways right now. But people close to Tebow understand the reality. ESPN The Magazine's David Fleming wrote that members in Tebow's camp have said privately that his NFL run "is probably over."
No fantasy analysis needed here; just a story about what we pretty much already know. Unless Tebow changes positions, he is most likely not going to be hired by an NFL team. I'm not sure what ESPN is going to do, but an NFL season sans Tebow sounds like a relief at this point.
