The newly-minted New York Jets quartback bears his chiseled body for the September issue of men’s fashion magazine, GQ, to kick off the new NFL season.
But, sorry ladies, he’s not doing a shirtless Tebow.
The piece, titled “Have You Accepted Tim Tebow as Your QB and Sunday Savior?”, doesn’t feature a photo of the now-infamous Tebow elbow-on-the-knee pose.
Instead, the ESPY winner — who turns 25 on Aug. 14 — is snapped shirtless, arms outstretched and legs crossed, eerily reminiscent of Jesus on the cross.
As the former Denver Bronco prepares to hit the field for the first time with the New Jersey-based team, he’s praying for one thing.
“I think if they’re a Jets fan, hopefully they’ll be rooting for me,” Tebow told GQ.
“I’ll do whatever I can to help this team win football games,” added the Heisman Trophy winner, who joined the Jets in March. “I’ll give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when I’m on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, that’s really all you can ask of someone.”
Tebow’s GQ cover hits stands Aug. 21, just three days after Gang Green takes on the New York Giants in a pre-season game on Aug. 18. The Jets’ first regular season match-up is set for Sept. 2, when they will go head-to-head with the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium.
