While college stars are prepping for the NFL Draft in April, veterans are training as well in hopes of getting a look for an NFL team before the season starts up.
The NFL’s Inaugural Veterans Combine will kick-off March 22nd. One of the biggest names that will be attending the combine will be Tim Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner who hasn’t played for an NFL team since he played with the New England Patriots in 2013. Tebow has been on the sidelines working as a commentator since then, but obviously, he still feels like he can still play the game.
According to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe, Tebow, 27, has been working out with Tom House, the personal coach of New England Patriots star Tom Brady. House told Volin it’s possible Tebow enters his name in this month’s veteran scouting combine.
“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,” House told Volin.
Tebow has not thrown a regular-season NFL pass since 2012. That’s three seasons! Tebow threw for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
