Tim Tebow hasn’t given up the dream of playing quarterback

The closest Tim Tebow’s been to an NFL quarterback lately was when he played in Cam Newton’s celebrity kickball game last week.

But the former Broncos/Jets/Patriots/Eagles sort-of quarterback said during an interview on “Larry King Now” that he hasn’t completely given up the dream.

“I’ve talked to a lot of my friends who are in the league and playing and all around, so yeah,” Tebow replied when asked about the chances of playing football again, via the New York Daily News.

The 28-year-old hasn’t played in a game since 2012, and when mad scientists like Bill Belichick and Chip Kelly tinker with him and can’t figure out what to do with him, then it’s probably over.

But Tebow insisted if he ever was to return, it would only be as a quarterback.

“You pursue what’s on your heart, you pursue what you’re passionate about and for me in the game of football, is the position of quarterback,” Tebow said. “You don’t do things necessarily because other people want you to, you do what’s on your heart, what you’re passionate about and that’s what I tried to do.”

You’ll probably hear more from the Heisman winner in the coming months, since he has a book coming out about handling success and disappointment. But at this stage, he should probably counsel himself about the ability to move on, since the NFL already has.
