Tim Tebow signs multiyear extension with ESPN

Tim Tebow signs multiyear extension with ESPN

ESPN and college football analyst/New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow announced a multiyear contract extension Monday.

"His unique experiences within the SEC and his broad national fan base are huge assets to SEC Nation and ESPN's larger CFP coverage", ESPN senior VP Stephanie Druley said in the news release.

Tebow has won lots of plaudits for his broadcasting work so far and has been a particularly good fit for SEC Nation, but ESPN doesn't have too many people who are committed to other jobs. He was the first analyst announced to join the SEC Network. The initial ESPN contract didn't stand in Tebow's way of pursuing an avenue back into the National Football League, and this updated agreement won't halt him from baseball, it appears.

Tebow now plays for the Mets' single-A team in Columbia, South Carolina, and the release specifically states the extension won't affect Tebow's professional baseball career.

On Aug. 13, 2004, Cutshall and Allen left the Rock-N-Water camp near Coloma, where they served as rafting and climbing leaders. Freitas says his department will present a report to the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office soon.

The 29-year-old Tebow continues to have ups and downs in his transition to a minor league baseball player for the Mets' Class A affiliate. The Mets signed him following an open tryout last fall despite Tebow not playing organized baseball in more than a decade. Serving as the team's left fielder or designated hitter, Tebow is hitting.242/.330/.363 in 103 plate appearances.

"Over the last three years ESPN and the SEC Nation crew have become like family", Tebow said via ESPN's news release.

Tebow was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2010 and led the Denver Broncos to an unlikely AFC West title and NFL Playoff Game win in 2011. If that long shot would happen it'll be interesting to see how Tebow's role at ESPN is affected.

He continued: "And I look forward to continuing to share my own love of the game with fans on ESPN and SEC Network".
