Apparently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tried to get Tim Tebow to come in and play H-back for them, way back when Mark Dominik was the general manager. That’s what he tweeted yesterday evening.
I called & called agent Jimmy Sexton, begged him & Tim Tebow to come play H-Back for the Bucs but it was always nope, only QB, now baseball— Mark Dominik (@MarkdominikESPN) August 30, 2016
This must have been either 2012 or 2013, as those were the only years when Tebow as available on the open market (the first in trade, the second as a free agent) and Dominik was still the Bucs’ general manager. Why the Bucs would think that Tebow could come in and successfully switch to a completely new position remains a bit of a mystery, but okay.
At least they didn’t want Tebow to play quarterback, that would have been a complete disaster, and would have made the Josh Freeman-Mike Glennon (and later Josh McCown) quarterback mess completely insufferable. I mean, moreso than it already was.
Tim Tebow, of course, is now training to become a baseball player after spending a year as a football commentator. Who knows whether that’ll succeed. It may be funny to watch, though.
