Ex-Jet Tim Tebow Makes Cameo On All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, Donates Money
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Nope, Tim Tebow still doesn’t have a job in the National Football League.
But that doesn’t mean his services aren’t wanted in other capacities.
The former Jets quarterback made an appearance on the All-Star Celebrity Apprentice finale on Sunday night.
In one scene, eventual winner Trace Adkins called up the former Heisman Trophy winner in an effort to secure a donation.
“Hey man, how’s everybody? I need Jesus to come through for me tonight,” the country music artist told Tebow over the phone. ”
Sure enough, the former first-round pick ended up delivering for Adkins.
“I’ve got a definite on Tim Tebow,” Adkins said on the broadcast. “Mr. Tebow is bringing $200,000 with him. But he knows he’s got to be there before 6 p.m.”
The most famous backup QB of all time ended up providing Adkins with a check, and, according to CBSSports.com, he brought an extra $100,000 to Adkins’ event.
General manager John Idzik released Tebow on April 29, and none of the other 29 NFL teams have shown any interest in signing the 25-year-old.
He’s drawn plenty of interest elsewhere, however.
He’s been courted by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, the Omaha Beef of the Champions Professional Indoor Football League and the Orlando Predators of the Arena League.
Even the Legends Football League — formerly the Lingerie Football League — wants him to be a quarterbacks coach.
Used primarily as a personal punt protector on special teams, Tebow completed just six of eight passes for 39 yards in 2012. He also rushed the ball 32 times for 102 yards. He never found the end zone in his lone season with the Jets.
