(PFT)–“There was some communication,” Tebow told reporters on Sunday regarding the XFL at a press conference held in connection with his current gig as an aspiring Major League Baseball player in the Mets organization.
“We had a couple conversations,” Tebow added. “But it was pretty clear that this was — I love what they’re doing. I think it has a chance to have success. And I think that’s great. And so I think there needs to be a place for a lot of players that are really good and should and could be playing in the NFL and are better than a lot of NFL players. And there’s a chance they’re going to be seen. So I think it’s awesome and I think it’s good for a lot of guys that are going to get a spot on an NFL roster because they’re going show a team that they’re worth it. But for me this is what I wanted to do and pursuit it and be all in and just, yeah.”
Come on now Tebow. Why do you do this? I want to see Tim Tebow in the XFL. I want to see Tim Tebow play football. But for some odd reason in my heart of hearts I think that Tim Tebow is going to explode in baseball this season because of divine intervention (also because he just got married) and somehow make the Mets by August. Am I crazy? Probably. But as a .200 hitter he hasn’t done anything in baseball yet and I feel like this year is the year.
