It wasn't so long ago that Tim Tebow fever gripped New York after his trade to the Jets from the Denver Broncos but, 18 months on, the quarterback is without a professional contract in the NFL.
Tebow was released after one season with the Jets, having thrown just eight passes and run 32 times, and soon signed a two-year contract with the New England Patriots. He was, however, cut in August of this year before the season even began.
It remains unclear if the 26-year-old will ever be able to force his way back into professional football following these high-profile rejections but Tebow's association with the game will continue following his signing to ESPN.
Tebow will work on the SEC coverage for the broadcaster and, given that he excelled during his time playing college football, the QB could well prove to be a decent analyst.
He was the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and led the University of Florida to a 13-1 record in the following two seasons.
