It appears as though Tim Tebow’s shot at a second NFL career has reached a conclusion. The previous football star, who looked for a re-visitation of the sport after a six-year break, was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team reported on Tuesday morning.
Tebow, 34, reacted to the team’s decision in a series of tweets.
“Thankful for the highs and even the lows, the opportunities, and the setbacks. I’ve never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure and I’m grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream,” he wrote. “Thank you to the @Jaguars organization and everyone who has supported me in this journey.”
Tebow finished up his posts with a Bible stanza, “And we know that…God works all things together for good. Romans 8:28”
The tight end momentarily played in the Jags’ first preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.
Tebow rose to notoriety over 10 years prior, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and leading the University of Florida to two national championship titles while he was the quarterback for the Gators.
The Denver Broncos drafted him in the first round (25th overall) in 2010. Subsequent to spending time with the Broncos, the New York Jets and the New England Patriots, he ended up with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 however was cut toward the finish of training camp.
He then, at that point sought after a career in baseball, joining the minor leagues in 2016 and making it right to the triple-A team of the New York Mets. Tebow declared his retirement from the league recently.
