Roger Goodell wants Tim Tebow in the NFL. If you assumed NFL teams would have pounced on Tim Tebow in free agency, you thought wrong.
The quarterback has yet to sign anywhere following his release from the Jets on April 29. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is hoping Tebow remains a part of the league for years to come.
“He’s a great young man,” Goodell said, when asked during an NFL Network Q&A with Steve Wyche…
Goodell continued: “He’s just a terrific young man and represents all of the values that I think all of our players do.”
Since the New York Jets released him last month, Tebow has not spoken publicly about the dismissal or what his next move will be. No teams appear interested in signing the former Heisman winner.
Tebow didn’t offer any insight last Thursday night of what could be next during a roughly hour-long keynote address before a crowd of about 3,000 at Lake Michigan College. The lecture was part of the Economic Club of Southwest Michigan’s annual speaker series, and Tebow had been booked last summer, when he was still an active NFL player.
Tebow accepted no questions from the press at the event, and was quickly whisked out a back door by police escort afterward.
