New York Mets Sign Tim Tebow to Minor-League Contract

The New York Mets have signed Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. The former Heisman Trophy winner will now report to either the Instructional League or Arizona Fall League.

Tebow held an open workout for 20 Major League teams on Aug. 30. Scouts had mixed reactions to his performance. Some said he was better than expected while others saw the entire event as a waste of time.

The fact that a team is taking a chance on Tebow isn’t surprising. He is, as Ken Rosenthal pointed out, a low-risk prospect.

So, yeah. Tim Tebow will be playing on a baseball team this fall. Let the good times roll.

One can only imagine how happy he must be to be under the umbrella of a major market team like the Mets. His affinity for New York has been well-documented. If he ever makes the majors, the media circus will be spectacular.
