Tim Tebow's never lacked for pluckiness.

Even as he's getting accustomed to his new TV gig as an analyst for the SEC Network, he told The Tennessean recently that he continues to work out every day in the hopes that an NFL team may allow him to revive his playing career.

“I’m training every day and feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been,” Tebow said at the Music City Sports Festival over the weekend. “I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I’m just excited about whatever the future holds. Who knows what could happen? But I’m excited about it, though.”

Tebow's last shot in the NFL came last offseason with the Patriots. Reunited with Josh McDaniels -- who drafted Tebow in the first round of the 2010 draft as the head coach of the Broncos -- Tebow couldn't prove that he was an effective passer at the NFL level, completing 11-of-30 attempts in New England's preseason games. He was released at the end of training camp.

Still, he's holding out hope. According to The Tennessean, Tebow was in Nashville back in May for a speaking engagement and worked out with a handful of receivers from the Nashville Venom Professional Indoor Football League.

Try as he might, at this point, if Tebow is truly set on a return, it seems more likely that it would be as a member of the PIFL than the NFL.
