Tim Tebow on end of football career: ‘It’s still hard’

Tim Tebow to the MLB this year? Why not

New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow might be destined for a shot at Major League Baseball sometime during the 2019 season.

Prior to suffering an injury, Tebow had earned an All-Star appearance in the minors last season. He’s also going to start this coming season at Triple-A with an invite to spring training.

While Tebow’s baseball career is going strong, the former Heisman winner is still looking back on an NFL career that ended too soon.

“It’s still hard sometimes when I watch games and I’m thinking, I can totally do that. Or, I can be doing this or playing here or crushing that,” Tebow told TMZ Sports.

A man of faith, Tebow also focused on this being god’s plan.

“I think God used the highs and the lows for a purpose and you try to embrace that and say, OK, God, what do you want me to do with this? And he opened up baseball as an avenue,” Tebow continued.

The former Florida standout played just three seasons in the NFL, starting a combined 14 games at quarterback. A first-round pick of the Denver Broncos, he continually struggled molding his game to fit the NFL.

The good news here is that this hasn’t been a problem on the baseball diamond. Tebow hit .273 with six homers and 36 RBI in Double-A last season.
