CBS has been passed over by Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who turned down the network’s offer to work as a studio analyst, reports the New York Post.
CBS had offered Tebow a role in the announcer’s booth for this Sunday’s pregame show after the Broncos ended their season Saturday with a 45-10 playoff loss to the New England Patriots, the article says.
Tebow has been the biggest story in the NFL this season, and his games toward the end of the season were huge ratings grabbers. He gained public attention — and polarized fans — with his displays of religious faith and what the article calls his "last-minute heroics."
Tebow didn’t give a reason for skipping the CBS offer, the piece adds.
