Professional sports are unforgivably brutal. In order to be on a team, you have to dedicate your life and work hard for it. But there’s only so much time before injuries happen or age takes over, shortening the career of athletes greatly in some cases like LeBron James who spends $1 million a year just taking care of his body because athletic training does take its toll on an athlete’s physical being.
Physical prowess can take one so far in athletics, but there are some dogged competitors who defy the odds. We also see what happens when pros “fall from grace,” even though they may appear to be physically fit at first glance. But was that the case for Tim Tebow? Despite his lackluster NFL career, he has managed to make a lot of money off of his incredible college career.
Why did Jacksonville Jaguars decide To Cut Tim Tebow?
Tim Tebow wasn’t playing up to a high enough level to capture the attention of Jaguars’ management and was cut from the team. The athlete is grateful for this second chance at an NFL career though, as he tweeted: “Thankful for the highs and even the lows, the opportunities, and the setbacks. I’ve never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure and I’m grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream. Thank you to the Jaguars organization and everyone who has supported me in this journey. And we know that…God works all things together for good. Romans 8:28.”

One of the most polarizing professional athletes in recent years was Tim Tebow. He received a lot of attention for his religious beliefs, as he would often quote scripture and kneel on the field to pray. There were also rumors that these personal views affect greatly his romantic life. The quarterback’s abstinence was a topic of conversation after his engagement ended with former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Rumors circulated about Tebow being gay, but he insisted that this wasn’t the case.
Football fans were disappointed when Tebow’s promising college career ended with an unsuccessful NFL run. Tim won a Heisman trophy at the University of Florida, was one game away from completing an undefeated season, and is considered one of the best ever collegiate players!
Tim Tebow closed out his career with the Florida Gators as a two-time SEC Player of the Year, three-time Heisman finalist, and two-time national champion. In addition to all these accomplishments, he also set 5 NCAA records, 14 SEC, and 28 University of Florida football team records during his tenure. In a few words, the kid had it all. That was until he played in the NFL.
The initial games he played for the NFL with Denver Broncos saw some impressive plays and ridiculous come-from-behind wins, but Tim was ultimately traded to the New York Jets. His completion percentage took a nosedive and never seemed to recover. Before getting another chance in the NFL with Jacksonville Jaguars, Tebow left his MLB career aspirations after moving from Minor Leagues before starting them again trying out at NY Mets‘ development team until leaving abruptly when it became clear that he would not get back into an NFL game this time either.
What is Tim Tebow’s Net Worth?
Tim Tebow’s net worth, despite not being as successful in the NFL, Tebow has still managed to secure a net worth that’s anywhere from $5-10 million. His baseball contract alone was reportedly worth $660,000 and his Jaguars pay is around 920k which isn’t too bad either.
Who Is Tim Tebow’s Wife?
On January 20, 2020, Tim Tebow and South African model Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who took home Miss Universe and Miss South Africa in 2017, got married. The two have expressed excitement about starting a family together with their 3 pets.
