The New York Mets have signed free agent outfielder Tim Tebow to a minor league contract. Surprisingly, it was the Mets because it was almost certain — before this news came down — that he was going to sign with the Atlanta Braves.

He’ll leave the SEC Network for this new opportunity. He’ll also join an Arizona Fall League, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

A minor league deal is required for all non-drafted free agents. The Mets also moved quicker than the Toronto Blue Jays — who were also reportedly interested in signing him.

Tebow recently had a tryout with several Major League Baseball teams. Only two teams didn’t show up in California.

During his baseball showcase, he told Fox Sports 1’s Skip Bayless that his football future is over. Tebow played for the Denver Broncos and the New York Jets in the National Football League.

He also signed with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he couldn’t make their roster.

It doesn’t appear like Tebow will make the Mets roster before the end of this season. This will be for the future if anything materializes.

Will Tebow be a good player? That is yet to be determined. However, the Mets are willing to take a gamble on the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Like football, Tebow has been away from the game for a long time. And this may handicap his future. But we will have to wait and see.
