As seems the only appropriate way for Tim Tebow's story to end, sources privately admitted to ESPN in a magazine story this week that they know his time in the NFL is over.

Luckily for Tebow, there's still a variety of opportunities that have been floated since his career started going down the tubes: A CFL team that has his rights, a baseball career uncovered by the Sporting News that never came to fruition, coaching job with the Lingerie Football League and a spot with arena football.

And of course, broadcasting.

"I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't talked about that," said Jon Chelesnik, the CEO of Sportscasters Talent Agency of America. "I would imagine he's not even thinking about broadcasting yet, he's thinking about someplace that he wants to play football."

(Tebow, for his part, after the ESPN article came out, said he would like to continue playing.)

Chelesnik says he sees Tebow succeeding on the networks in a similar fashion to Michael Strahan or Kurt Warner, both of whom have managed to make careers arguably as big as on television as they did on the field.

"I don't see him playing the role of cut-up," Chelesnik added. "He would be terrific hosting a show about people pursuing their dreams or achieving great things."

He also has a gift for motivational speaking and, could, Chelesnik says, "break the bank" in fees for his speeches.

"There are people out there who make a wonderful living who didn't have a Q rating among the public (that Tebow currently does) that make hundreds of thousands of dollars," he said.

It's also possible that Tebow could just dedicate his full time to his foundation. Throughout his career, he's been known to very quietly fulfill as many charitable requests as he can.

In 2012, a New York Times reporter watched as he redirected a question to talk about the foundation.

"Because ultimately I know that's more important than anything I do on the football field, is the ability to brighten a kid's day or the ability to make someone smile,” he said at the time.

It also might be the most immediately financially stable: In 2011, according to the foundation's IRS filings it had more than $2 million in total revenue.
