Mr. Tebow has had a hard time these last few weeks. Speculation and rumors surrounded his every turn the last few hours. He placed his focus back on what he holds close via his twitter feed. Truth be told, Tebow’s NFL career has been anything but a success. While that’s not necessarily all his fault, it sounds like he’s finally realizing that he’s going to take the high road.
The former New York Jets and Denver Broncos quarterback/H-back/punt protector/wide receiver cleared waivers this past Tuesday, as expected. No team put in a claim for him. In the one-on-one interview last year on “GMA”, Tebow talked about a range of topics, including the hopes he has for his career move, his outreach to others, family and the topic closest to his heart: his faith.
That deep Christian faith is paramount. Tebow, prays openly on his knees at the end of every game — a move that is now so well-known that it’s become a verb: Tebow-ing. In addition to his missionary work with orphanages in the Philippines, which is where he was born to missionary parents, Tebow hosts a celebrity golf tournament for charity and regularly brings sick children to his games through his foundation.
“It’s pretty easy for me to say that the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ, followed by my relationship with family. And football’s later on down the line, So many times in today’s society, we can put football No. 1. And I’ve done it in my life at certain times. You put football number one, this game is more important than anything else. Well, really, it’s not,” he said. “It’s just a game.” he told Roberts.
Choosing to book speeches at churches over hanging out has placed the proverbial bull-eyes on his back. Many say that his arm is just “going bad” and is the reason that he was released from the Jets. Others are thinking that his high profile Christianity has made unattractive. Either way, Tim has decisions to make.
