The XFL kicked off their season, but they wanted to do it with Tim Tebow. The former NFL quarterback has confirmed that he had talks with the league.

During the New York Mets’ spring training, Tebow told reporters that he did talk with the XFL. He decided to continue his baseball career instead. He does like what the XFL is doing and thinks they could be a success. Vince McMahon’s football league just wasn’t for him.
