Tim Tebow is coming ... to your cittttt-ay. Don't worry. It's still just college-football related, as Tebow's touring with the SEC Network for the 2014 season while being featured as part of a two-hour pregame show.

He's actually touring in advance this summer, and while in Nashville got asked about his status as an NFL quarterback. Tebow, unsurprisingly, still believes in himself.

"I'm training every day and feel like I'm the best that I've ever been," Tebow said. "I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I'm just excited about whatever the future holds. Who knows what could happen? But I'm excited about it, though."

At this point, just about everyone but Tebow knows what could happen: He could end up being a college football announcer for the rest of his life.

Tebow last played as an NFL starter in 2011. He last completed a pass on Nov. 18, 2012. Assuming he doesn't end up getting a shot at an NFL gig between now and the start of next season, he's staring at more than two full years of no NFL action.

The long and short of it is Tebow won't give up his dream of a comeback. That's OK. But it's unlikely it ever becomes anything other than just that: a dream.
