Tim Tebow was let go by the New England Patriots before the start of the 2013 season, but has not given up his dream of playing in the NFL.
The former Heisman-winning quarterback has been training at the Performance Enhancement Professionals gym in in Scottsdale, Arizona, with other football players (video below).
“I feel great,” Tebow told My Fox Phoenix. “I feel the strongest, healthiest, throwing the best I’ve ever have. I’m just really excited about the improvement.
“One of my favorite quotes is, ‘I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future,’” Tebow added. “That gives you peace to just continue to work and you go after what your heart desires. When you do that, you don’t have any regrets. I think that’s the best way to live life.”
The outspoken Christian athlete, who currently works as an analyst for the SEC Network, led the Denver Broncos to a stunning playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011, but has watched his career go downhill ever since.
Tebow was traded by the Broncos to the New York Jets in 2011, but saw little action there. He got picked up by the New England Patriots, but was cut.
According to CBS Connecticut, Tebow's NFL record includes 17 passing touchdowns and 12 rushing touchdowns. He won the 2007 and 2009 BCS National Championships while playing at the University of Florida.
While Tebow is a favorite of the Religious Right for his "Tebowing" (giving thanks to God on the football field), that popularity seems to work against him. Fans have been known to follow Tebow from training camp to training camp, creating an uncomfortable tension for the teams he has played for.
