The Mets sign NFL star Tim Tebow to MLB Contract



Former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner and philanthropist Tim Tebow is now a professional baseball player. Early this morning, the New York Mets announced that they signed Tebow to a minor-league deal, adding that he will be a participant in the MLB’s Instructional League coming this fall. Just a few weeks ago, Tebow held a showcase for more than two dozen teams after stating his desire to continue his career as a professional athlete in a sport other than football.
There’s no telling when or if we’ll actually see Tebow suiting up for the Mets. It’s relatively common for players to spend several years in the farm system before appearing in the big leagues,if they make it there at all.
                            
Tebow is now 29 and hasn't played baseball since high school in 2005. However he has been working out with former Major League catcher Chad Moeller in Scottsdale, Arizona since Memorial Day. He held a workout at USC last week to showcase his skills for MLB clubs. 28 teams showed up.

The former Florida Gator won two national championships while in college before playing quarterback for the Broncos and Jets from 2010 to 2012. He was rostered with the Patriots and Eagles in 2013 and 2015 but never took to the field.
