Tim Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and two national championships at Florida and caused "Tebowmania" during the Denver Broncos' 2011 playoff run. These days, Tebow is playing minor league baseball in the New York Mets organization and pursuing his dream of playing Major League Baseball, but Tebow revealed in an interview with NOLA.com that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton approached him to fill the jack-of-all-trades role that former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill currently fills for the Saints. Tebow said that it is "cool to see" how New Orleans uses Hill.

From the article:

“He did a good job making it clear what he thought,” Tebow said. “It just wasn’t necessarily in my heart at the time. It was cool. It wasn’t like I was totally against it. Love coach Payton. He’s one of the best coaches out there. For me, I still wanted to pursue being a quarterback and then baseball. Sometimes it’s not that you dislike something. It’s that you have something even more in your heart."

Tebow also thought Hill could have been "special" if he played on a "better" college team.

“If he was on a better team — I’m not trying to knock his college team — if he was on a better team, I think he would have had a chance to be special,” Tebow said. “You put him on the field with good teams and see what he could do, I think he could have done really well. I liked watching him a lot.”
