Tim Tebow staying in shape, hoping for another NFL chance

NFL training camps are getting under way this week, and Tim Tebow is still hoping for a phone call.

Tebow, who said last month he's not giving up on making it back to the NFL, doesn't sound like a guy anywhere close to being ready to give up on his dream.

The former Broncos, Jets and Florida Gators player told Phoenix TV station KSAZ that he's been going from the Performance Enhancement Professionals facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., to Los Angeles, where he works out with quarterback guru Tom House, to work on his skills and conditioning.

"I feel great," Tebow said. "I feel the strongest, healthiest, throwing the best I ever have. I'm just really excited about the improvement."

He even allowed the station to shoot video of his workout in Arizona. The video includes a look at something called "Danney Ball" (named for Tebow's trainer, Ian Danney) -- it appears to be a version of beach volleyball, except Tebow and the guys he trains with use a 10-pound medicine ball instead of a regular volleyball.

Tebow was cut by the Patriots before the start of last season and hasn't been a full-time starter in the NFL since the 2011 season. It appears he's just about out of NFL chances, but Tebow's not so sure.

"One of my favorite quotes is 'I don't know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future.' And in that, it gives you peace to just continue to work, go after what your heart desires and when you do that, you don't have any regrets. I think that's the best way to live life," Tebow said.

Tebow will serve as an analyst for the SEC Network this fall. That is, unless an NFL club decides it's ready to give him another shot -- his contract with the network includes an out-clause in case the NFL comes calling.
