Tim Tebow 'throwing very accurate,' could try out at NFL veteran combine

The first NFL veteran combine came and went with no Tim Tebow. But the left-handed college football analyst could show up at the next one after extensive training with Tom Brady's quarterback coach.

Per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Tebow's been working with Tom House in Los Angeles for the past two years. House told Volin Tebow's improved greatly.

"He went from being a little inaccurate and didn’t throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball," House said.

The quarterbacks coach wasn't sure if Tebow would appear at the next veteran's combine on March 22 in Phoenix (prior to the NFL owners' meetings there) but Tebow's name has been floated multiple times as a possible participant.

Tebow, 27, hasn't played in the league since 2012 -- after being drafted in the first round by the Broncos, he finally played for his new coach John Fox and took Denver to the playoffs despite an 8-8 record. 

The Broncos elected to chase Peyton Manning and shipped Tebow to the Jets, where he barely played during 2012. He wasn't able to land further work in the NFL and eventually landed with ESPN as an announcer with the SEC Network.
