Tim Tebow is not in the Dolphins’ plans for 2013 despite rampant Internet rumor and speculation, Omark Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Team sources say Tebow, the former Florida Gator standout and Heisman trophy winner, was not working out for the Dolphins on Thursday, and did not take a physical with the team.
Tebow, who was released by the New York Jets earlier this week, hopes to catch on with another NFL team this summer. But the odds of that being Miami are slim.
The Dolphins passed on adding Tebow last offseason when the Broncos put the former first-round pick on the trading block after acquiring Peyton Manning, and team executives don’t believe he’s an NFL quarterback.
A team source wouldn’t rule Tebow out completely, but said adding Tebow “hasn’t been discussed.”
