Against all odds the most popular back-up quarterback in the history of football got a job. There is no telling if he will remain on the roster once training camp gets underway and cuts are made, but that isn't stopping the New England Patriots from making the most of him while he is on the roster (love those merchandise sales, right Mr. Kraft?).
Whether Tebow will have a career beyond back-up in the NFL remains to be seen, but in case it does end tomorrow young Tim has put the wheels in motion for his next career.
As a fast-food restaurant owner.
Shortly after he was cut from the Jets Tebow invested in the PDQ fast-food chain. Yep, ole' Timmy is going to be hawking chicken fingers (excuse me--tenders).
Never heard of it? Unless you live in or around Florida chances are you haven't. It stands for 'People Dedicated to Quality.' Nice concept and one that seems kind of fitting for a person of Tebow's character.
But a fast-food chain that talks about quality? Isn't that kind of an oxymoron? Than again quality doesn't mean it has to be good for you. Had a great caramel frappe the other day. The quality of chicken tenders at some places is horrible--but not at PDQ.
Apparently Tebow invested in one of the restaurants in Jacksonville where everyone loves him (any guesses on how much Tebow merchandise will be on the walls?). The company does not have an estimated date of when it will open yet listed on its website, but they only just filed the plans in May.
There is talk that Tebow could be getting involved with further expansion plans as well.
That's a pretty smart business move on Tebow's part. For one, the nation is overweight and always in a hurry. Fast-food serves as the kitchen and/or dining room for thousands if not millions of families everyday. If he was going to do something like this there is no better place than Jacksonville. No matter what he does in the NFL the folks back in Gator Country will always love him.
And will love to eat at his restaurant.

Mike Rodak of ESPNBoston.com believes there’s an 80 percent chance wide reciever Julian Edelman makes the Patriots final roster. Rodak listed his reasons that Edelman should and should not make the roster. Edelman is the only wide receiver who recorded a catch last season who is still on the roster. His familiarity with quarterback Tom Brady makes him an asset, especially with...

It's been several days now since the investigation began into the death of Odin Lloyd and still there has yet to be an arrest made although the police seem to be zeroing in on New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
For days we have heard about the invesitgation, and have often thought that an arrest warrant was being issued for Hernandez. So far--nothing.
New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been taken into custody.
Hernandez has been the lynchpin of a murder investigation for the last 9 days in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.
Late last week, reports surfaced that North Attleborough, Mass had prepared and were to set to execute an arrest warrant on an obstruction of justice charge.
The initial report from ESPN...
Less than two hours after Massachusetts State Police arrested Aaron Hernandez at his home in North Attleboro, the New England Patriots announced that they have released the 23-year-old tight end. The New England #Patriots have released Aaron Hernandez. — New England Patriots (@Patriots) June 26, 2013 While the move isn’t exactly shocking given the fact [...]
Bill Parcells isn't the kind of man to admit many (if any) regrets publicly. The former New England Patriots coach may wear his New Jersey roots on his sleeve but not so his personal feelings.
That's why it was uncharacteristic for Big Tuna to admit that he left the Patriots after their forgettable Super Bowl XXXI loss after a power struggle with owner Robert Kraft and could...
Aaron Hernandez‘s release will cost the Patriots both on the field and off.
The Patriots decided to release the Pro Bowl tight end on Wednesday soon after North Attleboro police arrested him in connection with the murder investigation of Odin Lloyd. The move deprives the Patriots’ offense of one of their most versatile and dangerous weapons, but it will also hit them hard in...
In an offseason full of surprises, perhaps the most shocking news is that there is an NFL team with more tight ends on its roster than the Patriots.
Yes, I know, it seems very hard to believe, but the Rams have eight tight ends, while the Patriots, Packers and Texans are all tied for second most with seven. If there’s one thing we know about Bill Belichick, though, it’s that...
The search continues at the home of Aaron Hernandez, with police deploying scuba divers to search water located near his home. That’s nice and all, but I’d still like a little more information about the palatial doghouse that police raided over the weekend on Hernandez’s property. That thing has more square footage than my condo. Probably less feces on the floor, too. That...
As if it wasn't bad enough that Aaron Hernandez has been in the spotlight for his possible role in the murder of a friend and finally arrested Wednesday morning. Now there is word that another NFL player has been arrested on charges of attempted murder.
He's not a household name like Hernandez, but people in Virginia at least are well aware of who he is. Former Virginia...
