Tim Tebow says he’s$ 1 million poorer, thanks to New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick.
In his new book Shaken : Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms , the former NFL quarterback said he endeavoured Belichick’s permission to accept$ 1 million for a one-day endorsement appearance. Tebow expressed the view that he requested because he wanted to fit in with the Patriots during the 2013 preseason.
“Timmy, I would really appreciate it if you didn’t, ” Belichick reacted, per Tebow’s book.
So Tebow turned down the deal and a short time afterward, the Patriots cut him.
That$ 1 million could have come in handy , no?
“That’s not something that I look back and repent at all, ” Tebow told Fox& Friends on Monday. “It was me trying to honor the team, and if I could do it again, I would’ve done the same thing.”
The Huffington Post has reached out to the Patriots for comment.
