BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – Eleven days after he was cut by the New York Jets, Tim Tebow's future plans remain up in the air.
Tebow didn't offer any insight Thursday night during a roughly hour-long keynote address before a crowd of about 3,000 at Lake Michigan College. The lecture was part of the Economic Club of Southwest Michigan's annual speaker series, and Tebow had been booked last summer, when he was still an active NFL player.
Tebow accepted no questions from the press at the event, and was quickly whisked out a back door by police escort afterward.
Instead of discussing the past two weeks or his future, the 25-year-old spoke of his intensely competitive nature, his Christian faith and his love of family. He briefly touched upon his rookie season with the Broncos, when he led them to an improbable playoff win over the Steelers.
