Former-NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is considering a career in TV after he hired well-known broadcasting agent Nick Khan, according to NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport.

Tebow, who left the New England Patriots before the start of the season, has failed to secure a roster spot in the NFL this term despite the fact that many teams have needed quarterback cover.

And it seems the ex-Broncos gunslinger is ready to call time - at least temporarily - on his NFL ambitions by moving into the broadcast booth.

Rapoport said on his Twitter account: "Tim Tebow hired prominent broadcast agent CAA's Nick Khan to join Jimmy Sexton in representing him.

"If no NFL, will look at college TV jobs."

Tebow enjoyed great success in the college game, winning the 2007 Heisman Trophy and two national championships with Florida.

He was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Broncos, but despite a few notable comeback wins and playoff victories he was traded in 2012, then cut by the Jets after a season and again by the Patriots a few months later.

He always maintained that a career in the NFL remained his first-choice, but without any offers Tebow looks set to try and stay in the game in a different capacity.
