If this whole quarterbacking thing doesn't work out for Tim Tebow, and there's at least some chance that it won't, the New York Jets backup says he might look to take his talents to a bigger stage.

In an interview with ESPN New York, Tebow said he hasn't discarded the idea of entering politics.

"Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I’d love to do," Tebow said. "I haven't ruled out anything like that. It won't be anytime soon in my future, but it'll be something I'll at least look at and consider one day."

This isn't the first time Tebow has been linked with public service. In fact, it's not the second or the third time either.

In February, Tebow told David Feherty that politics could be "something in my future." In April, Tebow drew 15,000 people to an Easter service in Texas in which he espoused opinions usually reserved for politicians. Last month, Tebow was rumored to be the guest speaker at the Republican National Convention. Alas, the GOP chose Clint Eastwood.

Tebow remains enormously popular in his home state of Florida, , and he wouldn't even be the first football player-turned-politician in the Sunshine State.

The idea of Senator Tebow may seem like a long shot now, but we've learned that when it comes to Tim Tebow, anything is possible.
