Will Josh McDaniels Bring Tim Tebow to the Indianapolis Colts?


In the aftermath of Super Bowl LII and the disappointing loss the New England Patriots took to the Philadelphia Eagles, the dawn of a new era in Indianapolis is underway as former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels gets a second chance with the Colts. The question on some fans’ minds may be whether or not he will reach out to the first quarterback he hand-picked in the polarizing Tim Tebow.

For those who have wondered just what the former Heisman quarterback has been up to, he has taken his talents away from the gridiron, and has put focus into a former love of his in baseball. In 2017, Tebow earned a spot in the Mets’ organization with the St. Lucie Mets, a Single-A affiliate. His numbers were not eye-popping, but considering he was a full-time SEC football analyst and former starting quarterback, his .231 batting average to go along with his .307 OBP is actually not too shabby.

However, many people such as myself believe that McDaniels has unfinished business with Tebow. He drafted him in 2010 with the 25th overall pick, but was unable to fully see it through as he was fired that same season. He did however, see Tebow orchestrate six straight victories for the Broncos and guide them to a thrilling first-round playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While Tebow loves baseball, and is as committed a person as you’ll ever find — his love for football is second to none. There is no way he could pass up (no pun intended) an opportunity to strap it up with the one guy who believed in him at the pro level. With Andrew Luck basically being stitched together with duct tape and rubber bands, his playing status remains to be unknown for 2018 and beyond.

It’s time for McDaniels to make the call, and recreate the magic he saw from afar with the first quarterback he fell in love with in the draft. It’s time. Tebow Time.
