Tim Tebow called it quits on minor league baseball.
He decided to give the NFL another chance after connecting with his former coach.
Now Tebow’s future is in limbo after one big announcement.
Tim Tebow’s professional sports career is likely over.
After a respectable stint with the New York Mets’ minor league farm teams, Tebow gave up his pursuit of playing Major League Baseball.
And Tebow’s return to the NFL is over after being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
When Urban Meyer—his head coach at the University of Florida—got the head-coaching job for the Jaguars, his hometown team, Tebow gave playing in the NFL one more shot.
Tebow was insistent on playing quarterback during his first go-round in the league, but he tried out at tight end this time.
Meyer caught a lot of flak for even giving Tebow a shot, but Tebow helped him win two national championships, so Tebow got a chance.
Despite Tebow’s hard work during the offseason, the experiment at tight end did not work.
Tebow’s debut at the position did not go well; he badly missed two blocks that went viral on social media.

The second one was arguably worse than the first.

After the rough outing, it was impossible for the Jaguars to justify keeping him around.
To Tebow’s credit, he took the whole episode in stride.
He graciously thanked the Jaguars for the opportunity.
Thank you to the @Jaguars organization and everyone who has supported me in this journey.

Last year, Tebow married former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, and he started a film and television production company with his brother, so he has a lot going on outside of sports.
Tebow also finds time to be a staunch pro-life advocate as a devout Christian.
Tebow’s haters got their wish with him out of professional sports, but he still has a bright future ahead of him.
