Tim Tebow had ‘a couple conversations’ with XFL
Tim Tebow is committed to his baseball career, but he did, at least briefly, consider an XFL opportunity when the league was filling its roster.
Tebow said there was “some communication” and “a couple conversations” with the XFL, and he praised the league’s mission. However, he added that playing football again was never a serious consideration, and he wanted to remain “all-in” on his baseball career.

You can’t blame the XFL for reaching out to one of the sport’s most famous quarterbacks about playing. Tebow might as well have listened, considering the exposure and potential financial benefits of such a move. Ultimately, though, he really wants to follow through on his baseball career, even though he’s likely going to be in the minors once again in 2020.
Tebow struggled mightily with the move to AAA in 2019, hitting just .163 with four home runs in 77 games.
