Tim Tebow not on initial NFL Veteran Combine list


The NFL released its list of invitees for its first Veteran Combine on Wednesday, and a notable former first-round pick is not among the scheduled attendees.

Indeed, ex-Patriots, Jets and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is not among the players trying out at the combine, the league confirmed Wednesday.

The Boston Globe recently reported that Tebow had been regarded as a possible combine attendee. The quarterback has been taking part in throwing workouts the last two years, the newspaper said.

Though Tebow isn’t on the tryout list, three former first-round picks are: defensive end Jamaal Anderson (2007, Atlanta), defensive end Adam Carriker (2007, St. Louis) and tailback Felix Jones (2008, Dallas).

Other notable invitees are tailback Mikel Leshoure, tailback Michael Bush, defensive tackle Nate Collins, defensive end Michael Sam, linebacker Thomas Keiser, quarterback Mike Kafka and quarterback Tyler Wilson.

As the NFL notes, the combine list is subject to alterations, so there’s time left for additions and subtractions.

But for now, one famous name is missing.
