Tim Tebow is probably the strongest quarterback in the NFL today, a truth often overlooked in assessing what he can bring to a team.
A known gym rat, Tebow is now mixing up his workout routine by teaming with the Gracie family, legendary in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The New York Jets quarterback was at the Gracie family headquarters in Torrance, Calif., this week, training with Ryron Gracie and UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub.

Tebow is learning a style of martial arts characterized as a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. We're not sure how this makes him a better football player, but it would make us think twice before mockingly Tebowing in front of him.
