Tim Tebow Returns to ESPN After Being Cut by Eagles
The outspoken Christian will be back on TV for football, though not quite the way he wanted.
Tim Tebow will return to the analyst chair for ESPN after being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles.
"Tim quickly developed into an excellent analyst last year, and we were not shy about acknowledging his home at ESPN should he be available to return," said John Wildhack, ESPN executive vice president, in a statement.
Tebow will be back in front of the camera Saturday as an SEC Network college football analyst for the two-hour traveling pregame show, SEC Nation.
Tebow was originally taken by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 draft.
The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback helped to move a lot of NFL merchandise with his name on it since going pro, but struggled to stay on a roster. Tebow was traded by Denver to the New York Jets. He would go on to be released by the Jets and cut by the New England Patriots before being hired to take up the analyst chair for college football.
Tebow signed a one-year contract with the Eagles for the 2015 season, but was released at the end of the preseason.
