Tim Tebow

Thursday is the first day of the NFL season. So, naturally, Tim Tebow snatched the headlines.

As the New York Daily News reports, this means Tebow will head back to the state of Florida, as the Mets' Instructional League plays out of the team's spring training home in Port St. Lucie. So yeah, later this month, Tebow will again take The Sunshine State by storm.

The internet went in on the Tebow signing.

For New York, this marks the unlikely return of Tebow. After his playoff run with Denver, in 2012, Tebow was shipped to the Jets, where he played 12 games, threw six complete passes and rushed for 102 yards.

New York beat writers held nothing back reacting to the Tebow news of 2016.

This was taped before Tebow signed with the Mets, but it needs to be seen:
