“I want to thank the Mets, Mr. [Sandy] Alderson, the fans, and all my teammates for the chance to be a part of such a great organization,” Tebow said on Twitter. “I loved every minute of the journey, but at this time, I feel called in other directions. I never want to be partially in on anything. I always want to be 100% in on whatever I choose. “Thank you again for everyone’s support of this awesome journey in baseball. I’ll always cherish my time as a Met!”

The former first-round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft spent the last four seasons in minor league baseball. He reached as high as Triple-A in 2019 with the Syracuse Mets.

There was no minor league baseball in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. He had a .163 batting average at the Triple-A level in 77 games.

Tebow also had four home runs and 19 RBIs and 39 hits in 239 at-bats.

Before giving baseball a try, he spent three seasons in the NFL. He played two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Then, he played with the New York Jets in 2012. He was 8-6 as a starter, including going 7-4 during the 2011 NFL season.

He had 2,422 passing yards with 17 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. Also, during the 2011 season, Tebow had 1,729 passing yards with 12 touchdown passes.
