After being cut by the New England Patriots just prior to the start of the regular season, Tim Tebow spent the 2013 NFL season out of football. Now, the former Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft choice has signed a multi-year deal with ESPN, tweeted Adam Schefter on Monday.

Tebow will serve as an analyst for ESPN's SEC Network, traveling to a different SEC campus each week for the “SEC Nation” pregame show. The former Florida Gators quarterback will also contribute to SportsCenter, the network’s Heisman Trophy coverage, and ESPN radio programs.

"I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," Tebow said in a statement. "When I was six years old, I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC."

The former first-round pick of the Denver Broncos will make his debut as an analyst during ESPN’s pregame coverage of the BCS National Championship game between Florida State and Auburn.

Per Schefter, Tebow’s contract will not preclude him from attempting to continue his NFL career. However, after being cut by the New England Patriots and the New York Jets and being traded by the Denver Broncos, it appears likely that Tebow’s time as a professional quarterback has run its course.
