Former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow laughs with Gatorade scientist Melissa Tippet after a caloric expenditure test at the Gatorade Performance Lab on Friday during Super Bowl Week in south Florida. For the first time at a Super Bowl, athletes will use G Series, a new line of products developed by Gatorade scientists and top athletes to get the most out of their bodies before, during and after the game.

Tim Tebow has been in the headlines a lot lately, from his performances at the Senior Bowl, to his closing prayer at the National Prayer Meeting in Washington last week, to those Super Bowl ads that were supposed to be controversial but were not.

After all that, look for Tebow to disappear from the headlines for a while. That was the word from his agent, Jimmy Sexton, on Monday.

Sexton, the Memphis-based agent, said Tebow has no more engagements of any kind lined up between now and the start of the NFL Combine on Feb. 24 in Indianapolis.

“It’s going to be nothing but football between now the Combine,” Sexton said.

Tebow is back in Nashville, where he is working out with former NFL quarterback Zeke Bratkowski and former NFL quarterbacks coach Marc Trestman, who was with Tebow at the Senior Bowl.

Tebow is working on his throwing motion and mechanics. Both drew some criticism at the Senior Bowl, and Tebow acknowledged he needed to improve in those areas. If all goes as planned, we won’t be seeing Tebow again until the Combine.

  1. I wish TIm the best, but high second round is more likely. The Jags can’t take him until the fourth: They won’t pick him #11 overall, and because they have no second round pick, they can’t afford to gamble with thier pick in the third. Although he’s a high risk/reward prospect, Tebow is a gamble. I just hope he doesn’t go to DC or Oakland. Thanks for the memories, Tim.

  2. I will be glad when Tim is picked to play quarterback in the NFL. Notice I said “when” and not “if”. Coaches know what a great leader he is. And just about every q-back needs work when transitioning from college to pro. With his work ethic, he can do just about anything. If people would leave him alone and quit hanging on his every throw just waiting to pounce, he would be able to settle down and get better. Tim has given us his all for 4 years. I now am giving him my all. The complete and total respect he deserves. Go Tebow!!!!

  3. how funny, not even two days later and this is what i read online in sptimes. ‘Tim Tebow to join Maurice Jones-Drew as Gatorade Duel Grand Marshals’.

    i thought it was just going to be about football from here on out……..

    his agent and the author of this article look a little foolish……
