Free agent Tim Tebow "still has hopes" of returning to the NFL.
"I'm training every day and feel like I'm the best that I've ever been," Tebow said. "I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I'm just excited about whatever the future holds." Tebow's future is with ESPN's SEC Network, which is launching in August. Even if teams thought Tebow could improve their roster, he's unlikely to ever be signed again because of the media circus that always accompanies.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told CBS Sports that ESPN analyst Tim Tebow is still "hoping" for one last shot in the NFL.
Meyer, of course, coached Tebow at Florida. "Works every day. He's hoping," Meyer said of Tebow. "There are some conversations about it. I don't know too much. There's hope and he says there's stuff going on." Tebow accepted a position with ESPN's SEC Network last December. He turns 27 this August.

Ex-Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said the Tim Tebow trade was his biggest mistake in New York.
"Obviously we made a couple mistakes -- trading for Tim Tebow most notably," Tannenbaum told CBS Radio. It's hard to argue with Tannenbaum, who now works for NFL Network and Yahoo! Sports and also has dipped his toes in the agency business. The other colossal blunder from Tannenbaum was handing Mark Sanchez a five-year, $58.25 million extension in the same offseason.

"The offer has been made to his agent and now we're waiting for a response," Seamen president Marco Mutti said. "We would be more than happy to have him." The chances of Tebow accepting the offer are around zero. Tebow has said numerous times that he's only interested in playing football in the NFL.

The Post-Dispatch confirms that free agent QB Tim Tebow "is not coming to St. Louis."
The NFL.com report that said the Rams were having discussions regarding Tebow following Sam Bradford's ACL tear has now been debunked by numerous outlets. If the Rams did think about adding the Tebow circus, they've quickly changed their mind. Expect another quarterback to be added to the roster as a backup to Kellen Clemens. Tebow has been on the street since the Patriots released him just before Week 1.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora disputes reports the Rams are weighing signing free agent Tim Tebow.
Per La Canfora, the Rams "have no desire" to sign Tebow, and "are not mulling it." NFL.com's Mike Silver reported earlier Sunday the Rams had at least internally discussed the idea, and there have been rumors of St. Louis' interest in the past. The Rams currently fear Sam Bradford tore his left ACL in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Their only other QB is Kellen Clemens.

According to NFL.com's Mike Silver, the Rams have at least internally discussed the possibility of signing free agent QB Tim Tebow.
This isn't the first time we've heard of a link between the Rams and Tebow. And now that Sam Bradford (knee) is down for possibly a significant amount of time, the rumors are heating back up. The only other quarterback on the Rams' roster is Kellen Clemens, someone Tebow could conceivably start over. Silver said Sunday night that he doesn't expect a signing to happen, but it's a story to monitor for more than just a tabloid story. Tebow's legs make him a better fantasy quarterback than real-life signal-caller.

SI's Peter King reported on NBC's 2013 NFL Kickoff that free agent Tim Tebow received an "inquiry" from an undisclosed team this week about playing a position other than quarterback.
He turned it down. Per King, Tebow "wants to keep the NFL dream alive," but only as a quarterback. We firmly believe he exhausted all NFL quarterback opportunities when the Patriots dumped Tebow at final cuts. Somewhat interestingly, King reported USA Rugby approached Tebow about changing sports. Again, no dice. There is no question Tebow would be given another shot were he willing to try tight end or H-back. He is simply not open to it.

Free agent Tim Tebow has not been in contact with the CFL.
The Montreal Alouettes hold Tebow's CFL rights. "Really nothing to discuss unless he came to the CFL," said GM Jim Popp. "Have never had a conversation with him or his agent." Tebow has never shown any interest in proving he can play the quarterback position by earning a starting job up north. Perhaps he'll change his mind if he remains without a job for the entire 2013 season.
