NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tim Tebow insists he’s not done trying to make it as an NFL quarterback.
It’s a good thing LeSean McCoy isn’t his agent.
The Philadelphia Eagles running back stomped all over Tebow this weekend at Los Angeles International Airport when a TMZ cameraman asked the notorious trash talker a series of questions, including his thoughts on who might be the most talented football player currently without a team.
The cameraman mentioned Tebow, and McCoy came back with a punch to the gut:
“My son (is) two. I’ll take my son over Tim Tebow.”
The 26-year-old Tebow has received headline-grabbing offers from teams in the arena league and across the globe, though to the dismay of some Jacksonville fans, he hasn’t sniffed the pros since his release from the New England Patriots prior to the 2013 season. Even former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum has publicly admitted that trading for Tebow in 2012 was a mistake.
ESPN announced in December that Tebow would work as an analyst on the SEC Network.
As for McCoy’s toddler, it’ll be his call whether he actually gets to prove one day that he’s better than the Heisman-winning QB.
“I really don’t want him to play,” McCoy said. “It’s his decision.”
