Tim Tebow has no regrets about time with Jets
Tim Tebow again deflected questions about his NFL future during an interview on FOX Business Network. The Jets backup quarterback, who is a spokesman for TiVo, maintained he has no regrets about coming to New York.
“I believe everything happens for a reason,” the seldom-used Tebow said, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. “I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future and in that there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort.”
The polarizing QB also confirmed he’s single.
The same week Jets coach Rex Ryan bypassed Tebow and named third-stringer Greg McElroy his starting quarterback in Week 16, gossip magazines reported Tebow and his actress-girlfriend of two months, Camilla Belle, had broken up.
