PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow has been reassigned to minor league camp by the New York Mets after hitting .267 with one RBI in eight spring training games.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — By now, Tim Tebow has shown he belongs in professional baseball. He's fully committed to the game and much more comfortable on the field.
Sometimes, though, he still sounds like a football player.
On his first day at spring training with the New York Mets, the former NFL quarterback was reflecting on last year, when he injured his ankle stepping on a sprinkler head at the beginning of camp.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Before picking football over baseball, Kyler Murray got some advice from another famous two-sport star.
A person with knowledge of the conversation tells The Associated Press that the new Alliance of American Football spoke with Colin Kaepernick during its development about joining the league.
But Kaepernick wanted $20 million or more to consider playing with the league that had its debut last weekend.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because neither side has publicly acknowledged such talks.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — In just about every season he's been in charge of football operations in Denver, John Elway has had to address major concerns at one or both of the two most consequential positions in the NFL: head coach and quarterback.
This offseason, he made changes at both spots, hiring Vic Fangio and acquiring Joe Flacco in a trade that will become official next month when the league's new year begins.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy grew up idolizing Tim Tebow.
After a phenomenal freshman season, perhaps it was more than serendipity that the Cyclones awarded Purdy No. 15, which Tebow wore at Florida, when he first arrived on campus.
Purdy, who rose from the third string to lead Iowa State to seven wins in nine games in 2018, met with reporters for the first time on Friday. Iowa State doesn't allow freshmen to speak with reporters.
MIAMI (AP) — Tim Tebow is engaged.
The Heisman Trophy winner announced his engagement on Instagram Thursday to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South Africa native and the 2017 Miss Universe.
The 31-year-old Tebow posted photos of himself down on one knee and 23-year-old Nel-Peters wearing an engagement ring.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Jeff Driskel headed directly from the practice field to the podium in the media room and headed for Andy Dalton's usual seat. In countless ways, the third-year quarterback has entered a new frontier.
Until last Sunday, he'd never gotten into a game because of an injury. He's practicing with the Bengals' starting offense this week for the first time all season.
New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow has another offseason job.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback will host "Million Dollar Mile," a 10-episode high-stakes physical competition show on CBS.
Contestants will have a chance to win $1 million every time they run the Million Dollar Mile. In their way stands a challenging course and a group of elite athletes who are out to stop the contestants from winning the money at all cost.
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow has earned a promotion to Triple-A Syracuse.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback hit .273 with six homers and 36 RBIs in 84 games this year for Double-A Binghamton. His season was cut short by a broken hamate bone in his right hand, which required surgery July 24.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Lucas Krull grew up idolizing Tim Tebow, a left-handed quarterback big enough to play tight end.
So imagine how wide-eyed Krull was when Tebow spoke in the locker room before Florida's game against LSU. Krull was even more star-struck when Tebow congratulated him afterward.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow has a bronze statue outside Florida Field and his most memorable quote emblazoned on a plaque a couple hundred feet away. His All-American brick rests nearby, too.
On Saturday, the Gators will honor their most famous quarterback one more time.
Florida will induct Tebow into the program's Ring of Honor, making him the sixth player with his name prominently and permanently displayed inside the Swamp.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tim Tebow is anxious to return to full baseball workouts once he completes rehab on a broken bone in his right hand that cut short an All-Star season.
Tebow, 31, played his second season in the New York Mets organization. He batted .273 and had six homers and 36 RBIs with Binghamton in the Class Double A Eastern League before his injury in mid-July. Tebow played in the league's All-Star Game.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks finally got to see how a jump pass is supposed to look.
Franks scrolled through his phone after the team's season opener, a 53-6 win against overmatched Charleston Southern on Saturday night, and realized he needed to check out two of Tim Tebow's most memorable passes.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow is set for hand surgery Tuesday, dashing his hopes of playing in the majors this year.
The 30-year-old outfielder will have surgery in New York to remove his broken right hamate bone, an injury that occurred Thursday while swinging a bat for Binghamton against Trenton in the Double-A Eastern League.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Two-time national champion and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow will be inducted into Florida's ring of honor, becoming the sixth player to receive the honor.
The school announced Wednesday that Tebow will be recognized during the LSU-Florida game on Oct. 6. His name will be unveiled on a wall inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — Tim Tebow is holding his own as he tries to make his way up the minor league ladder in the New York Mets farm system.
He went 2 for 15 to start the season with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies of the Double-A Eastern League. But Tebow has raised his batting average to .244 with five doubles, one triple, three home runs and 12 RBIs in 26 games.
He hit .303 over a 10-game span with a five-game hitting streak. Last week, the lefty hit his first home run since opening night.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow arrived at the New York Mets spring training camp on Sunday, and the attention immediately turned to whether the quarterback who became an outfielder could make it all the way to Citi Field in the future.
Guess what? Mets general manager Sandy Alderson votes yes.
"Somebody asked me if thought he'd be a major league player at some point. I think he will play in the major leagues. That's my guess," Alderson said.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Josh McDaniels didn't know what he didn't know.
In 2009, he was the baby-faced 32-year-old prodigy plucked out of Bill Belichick's roost and Tom Brady's shadow to serve as Mike Shanahan's replacement in Denver, holding down two jobs he'd never had: head coach and de facto general manager.
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Oklahoma Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield's arrival at the Senior Bowl has been delayed.
Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said Monday the quarterback went home to Austin, Texas for a "personal family matter".
Mayfield was scheduled to arrive in Mobile Sunday afternoon. Savage says he's expected to make it to town in time for Tuesday's North practice to begin the weeklong audition for NFL teams.
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson is losing another backup quarterback with Tucker Israel's decision to leave the program.
Israel said on the team's Twitter feed Monday he will graduate from Clemson and then seek to play elsewhere. Earlier this month, reserve quarterback Zerrick Cooper also announced he was leaving the Tigers.
Israel is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound quarterback from Orlando, Florida who at Lake Nona High School surpassed Tim Tebow's Florida prep record with 56 passing touchdowns in a season.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — New Florida coach Dan Mullen has his dual-threat quarterback of the future, maybe even the now.
Emory Jones, of Franklin, Georgia, signed a national letter of intent with the Gators on Wednesday. He chose Florida over Florida State and Ohio State. He expects to enroll in school next month and compete for the starting job in spring practice.
NEW YORK (AP) — Baker Mayfield took a unique road to the Heisman Trophy, a long and winding climb from walk-on to one of the most accomplished players to ever play college football.
The brash, flag-planting Oklahoma quarterback became the sixth Sooner to the win Heisman on Saturday night in one of the most lopsided votes in the 83-year history of the award.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Dan Mullen spent the last 13 years in the Southeastern Conference. He cultivated offenses. He developed quarterbacks. He celebrated two national championships. He turned former league laughing stock Mississippi State into a title contender.
He probably should have been Florida's top target from the start.
Instead, it took Chip Kelly spurning the Gators for athletic director Scott Stricklin to turn to his close friend and former Starkville, Mississippi, neighbor.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tim Tebow's goal going forward is simple: Play ball!
Professional baseball, to be more specific.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL quarterback said Friday that he spends three-to-five days each week training for baseball, getting himself ready for Year 2 of his pro career in the New York Mets organization.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow plans to return to the New York Mets' organization next season. But first, what will he do when the St. Lucie Mets' minor league season ends Sunday? Is there any chance of more baseball in the Arizona Fall League or somewhere else for the rookie outfielder?
