Tim Tebow almost wrestled a match in WWE after Patriots release

When the Patriots signed quarterback Tim Tebow in the summer of 2013, it was quite the spectacle, so much so that even Bill Belichick mentioned it in his final press conference with the team earlier this month.

He was coming off an underwhelming season with the Jets, where he was traded after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning, and his career never really got back to the hype it once had. Despite Tom Brady being the inarguable starter, the idea was Tebow would be a sufficient backup. But he was also released by the Patriots just two months after arriving in New England, and later that year, he began his broadcasting career.

But apparently, that wasn't the only new venture he considered after his short stint with the Patriots.

During a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee show, WWE President Nick Khan revealed the former quarterback was once involved with the company. They tried to sell Tebow on the idea of having a match with wrestler The Big Show at WrestleMania the following year, but it never happened.

When you go to file the most unexpected story of the week, be sure to put this one at the top because it's hard to imagine anyone could have seen this coming.
