Tim Tebow is in Atlanta. The New York Jets quarterback (for now anyway) showed up for a Thursday night workout at Flywheel Atlanta. The indoor cycling studio on West Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead posted a photo of him afterwards.
“Look who joined a full class tonight,” the caption read.
Tebow, who has family in town, shows up in Atlanta from time to time. Last spring he came to Atlanta to serve as one of the featured speakers at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast 2012, a leadership seminar. During that visit he also appeared at an event at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville to discuss sports, leadership and the Great Commission – Jesus’ instruction to the disciples to spread his teachings.
He was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl earlier this week, where the University of Florida played Louisville (the Cardinals upset the Gators to win 33-23). An Around the League piece posted on NFL.com reported that he ducked questions about his future. Speculation has been strong that he’ll seek a change, given his lack of playing time as backup QB for the Jets.
“I’m just so blessed to be here tonight, to be able to be part of Gator Nation,” Tebow told Around the League, referring to his alma mater.
