Tim Tebow has signed a contract with a professional sports franchise in New York again, and everyone has an opinion about it.
The former Florida quarterback, who played for the New York Jets in 2012, has signed a minor-league contract with the New York Mets. He will play in the Instructional League or Arizona Fall League, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He hasn’t played baseball since he was in high school in 2005.
As with all things Tebow-related, social media had a lot of reactions to the news. Here are some of the best tweets about Tebow’s new career move:
