Tim Tebow is about to embark upon his second sport as a pro athlete.
According to TMZ, the former Broncos quarterback just accepted a minor league contract with the New York Mets. He’ll be joining the team’s instructional league and could play in the Arizona Fall League.
Last month, Tebow expressed interest in playing professional baseball and almost immediately found himself courted by teams in the U.S. and abroad. The Heisman Trophy winner invited pro scouts to his tryout last month in LA and was rumored to speaking with the Atlanta Braves before finally settling on the Mets’ organization.
He’ll reportedly be an outfielder for last season’s Fall Classic runner-ups.
