Several Minor Leaguers Are Salty About Tim Tebow Getting $100k Signing Bonus
Former Florida Gators Heisman Trophy Winner and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow damn near broke the internet when it was announced that he signed a minor-league contract with the New York Mets.
On the same day, a few salty minor leaguers took to Twitter to complain about the huge $100K signing bonus Tim Tebow received—which was much more than what they received, and they had been playing baseball way longer than him.
So Tim Tebow signed for 100k? Glad to know a guy who hasn’t played baseball for 10 years is worth 100x more than I was as a player. #brutal

While it’s clear Tim Tebow doesn’t deserve that type of cash to play minor league ball, it’s also clear that he got it because his name and fame alone will put people in the stands so that money is coming back quickly, plus more.
