NEW YORK (CBSMiami) – How does the idea of Governor, Congressman, or Senator Tim Tebow sound to you? Don’t shrug it off too quickly because it just might happen.
Tebow, now of the New York Jets, told ESPN New York via CBS New York that he hasn’t decided against a political run in his future.
“I haven’t ruled it out,” Tebow told ESPN New York. “Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I’d love to do. I haven’t ruled out anything like that. It won’t be anytime soon in my future, but it’ll be something I’ll at least look at and consider one day.”
Several candidates have actively sought the endorsement of Tebow during the Republican Primary in January. Tebow declined all of the requests.
But, Tebow’s popularity among Florida Gators fans has never waned and could be enough to propel him to a major political office if he so chooses. He’ll just have to find a way to deal with Florida State and Miami fans along the way.
Tebow is riding the bench for the most part after being traded to the New York Jets in the offseason. Last year, he led the Denver Broncos to a playoff berth and opening round victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
