Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, 29, has reportedly been signed to a minor league baseball contract with the New York Mets. ESPN reports that Tebow will be heading to the Instructional or Arizona Fall League to break in his cleats. “They are intrigued by his potential. This is not a publicity ploy,” a source told WABC. Tebow earned mixed reviews from scouts at a workout last week: “I thought he was okay. Better than I expected, to be honest,” one major league scout said. Tebow last played baseball full-time in 2005, when he was in high school.
