Tim Tebow Signs Multi-Year Extension With ESPN, SEC Network
The last time we heard from Tim Tebow, he was blasting a 3-run homer for the Columbia Fireflies and then another just days later bacjk in April.
On Monday, Tebow signed a multi-year contract extension to remain with ESPN and will continue to work for SEC Network as part of its travelling pregame show, the network announced on Monday, according to Sports Illustrated.
“Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family,” Tebow said in a statement. “I love the passion that SEC fans bring to our set every Saturday morning and I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network.”
Calm down Mets fans, Tebow isn’t giving up on his baseball career just yet. He will still be allowed to pursue his baseball career and remain with both networks.
The former Heisman Trophy winner was signed to a minor-league deal by the Mets in late 2016 and has hit .242/.330/.363 in 26 games this season, including two home runs and nine RBIs.
