[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ith his photogenic All-American looks and polarizing appeal, is former quarterback Tim Tebow made for primetime television?
Tebow, who was recently cut by the New York Jets, is rumored to be considered for an analyst role on ESPN, per New York Daily News writer, Bob Raissman.
Other networks such as Fox Sports and possibly CBS are also believed to be interested in the former two-time BCS national champion from Florida and former first round pick of the Denver Broncos.
If there is any more proof needed in measuring Tebow’s on-air magnetism, look no further than ESPN’s seemingly around-the-clock coverage of his press conference and first training camp in Floral Park last year.
While he is widely maligned and reviled for his unorthodox throwing release and devout Christian beliefs, Tebow is a natural lightning rod, who in the right network, would not only boost rating, but become his own unique media brand.
ESPN, who recently signed a 20-year deal with Tebow’s former conference, the Southeastern Conference, and will launch the up-coming SEC Network in 2014, appears to be the best natural fit for Tebow, who along with his football-obsessed legion of fans from his days in Gainesville would be a match made in media heaven, and a ratings nightmare juggernaut for everyone else.
