Ever since Vince McMahon announced that he would be relaunching the XFL in 2020, fans have speculated as to who could show up in the league. Many former college stars who couldn't cut it in the NFL, for whatever reason, seemed to be the biggest names bantered about as the XFL would give them another chance to show off their skills.
Two of the most popular names thrown around are former Heisman winners Johnny Manziel and Tim Tebow. While they were both record-setting SEC quarterbacks, the two couldn't be any more different and the only thing they have in common is that the NFL wants nothing to do with them.
Manziel has flirted with the CFL while Tebow has taken his talents to minor league baseball and ESPN. The former Florida Gator was asked about potentially joining the XFL by Sports Illustrated and possibly working with Vince McMahon in other areas.
"2020 is a long way from now," Tebow said. "I’m focused on today, I’m focused on spring training and a lot of things before that. I’m not even close to thinking about that right now."
SI.com: So that’s not a "no" or a "yes."
Tebow: What if it’s a “I have no idea?" That’s in 2020 and I’m super excited about baseball.
Tebow did admit that he wasn't much of a WWE fan growing up but then became friends with some of the Superstars. He said he respects what they do and also labeled them "good actors."
While he didn't give a definitive answer as to his XFL plans come 2020, Tebow did mention that he would listen if the WWE came calling. SI asked him if Vince McMahon asked him to cut a promo on Raw if he would be able to do it.
"Oh, I think I could cut a good promo. I think we could do something fun."
Tebow certainly knows how to give an impassioned speech as his post-game speech after a loss in 2008 is considered one of the best in sports history.
