Wait, an NFL team really just considered Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow suddenly has become the de rigueur answer for every troubled sports franchise.

Though the 29-year-old Tebow has been surprisingly OK in the Mets’ minor league system this year, the Dolphins reportedly considered him as a possible quarterback solution before landing on Jay Cutler after Ryan Tannehill went down last week.

The Dolphins also considered and discarded Kyle Orton and the embattled Colin Kaepernick before agreeing to terms with Cutler, according to the Miami Herald.

Plucking Bears castoff Cutler from the Fox broadcast booth for one year and $10 million is one thing. Getting Tebow to give up his burgeoning baseball career now that he actually seems to have found his swing would have been another.

The Heisman Trophy winner and two-time BCS national champion caught on with the Mets last fall and earned — or was given — a promotion to High-A ball, where he is hitting .268 with five home runs and 23 RBIs in 38 games with St. Lucie.

Tebow would be on any team I owned. He is a winner and a leader, even the team thugs love and respect him. Even if you didn't play him he's good for 2 wins a year in the NFL because he just gets people working together.
Hey, I have an idea. Tebow for Congress.

Tebow has an NFL playoff win under his belt, only one less than that now retire QB from Dallas (Tony Romo) who played over 10 years!

Tebow a true competitor!

I just can't believe that the only thing keeping Tim out of the pros is his propensity to take a knee or give some other form of thanks after a great play. Has political correctness taken a such a twist that allows Kapernak to "take a knee" during the anthem but Tebow can't give thanks? Wow! I will side with Tebow.

Very happy for him! He chose the more difficult path and has been rewarded.
