Tim Tebow is no longer an out of work football player. 

The former Heisman winner and NFL quarterback now officially has a new career after signing for the New York Mets.

Yep, Tim Tebow is now a baseball player, and he really is going to play. The former Denver Broncos man is following in the footsteps of Michael Jordan.

The Mets took to their verified Twitter account to announce the signing, stating that Tebow would be headed straight to the Instructional League, where he no doubt will have to put in a lot of work.

Tebow hasn't played proper competitive baseball since high school, which was about a decade ago. The former Florida quarterback had a showcase recently that 28 teams attended, and it didn't go too well, with some scouts coming out of it very critical of the player.

Tebow, however, seems happy to be back.

"This is something I love to do, and I think when you have that mindset, it lets you be free to just go out there and compete," he said.

"It lets you be free to do what a lot of people think you can't do. When you don't have that (fear), it lets you be able to be free to pursue life and what you're passionate about, not what other people think you should do."
