Tim Tebow could attempt comeback at NFL veteran combine
Tim Tebow has not taken a snap in the NFL since the 2012 season, but he has not given up his professional football dreams just yet.
According to The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin, Tebow could be a participant at the NFL’s veteran combine in two weeks. Volin says he has heard Tebow’s name as a “possible participant” at the March 22 combine and notes that Tebow has been “working diligently” with quarterback’s coach Tom House in LA over the past two years.
“House told us on Friday that he isn’t sure if Tebow will be attending the combine, but “he went from being a little inaccurate and didn’t throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball.”
Tebow experienced success during the 2011 season when he led the Denver Broncos to a playoff win over the Steelers. He was traded to the Jets, barely contributed in 2012, and complained about his role on the team. The Pats picked him up the next season but cut him in August, and he has been a free agent ever since.
A few months after being cut, Tebow was back in LA still working on his skills. And as recently as last year, his former college coach Urban Meyer said Tebow was still hoping for another shot in the league.
The reality is after seeing how bad Ryan Lindley was for the Arizona Cardinals and that he was starting in a playoff game last season, guys out of the league probably had renewed hope. There is little doubt in my mind that Tebow would have been more effective for Arizona than Lindley was, so it makes sense for him to give it another shot.
