Jordan Rodgers isn’t fumbling his gig as a college-football analyst for the SEC Network, says fellow analyst Tim Tebow. (See for yourself, with Rodgers in action in the clip above!)
Though Tebow’s been busy training in the New York Mets Instructional League, he’s impressed with the Bachelorette alum. “From the little bit I’ve seen, he’s doing a good job,” the former pro quarterback, 29, exclusively tells Us Weekly. “If he brings his personality and sincerity and all of his life experiences, then he’ll be just fine.”
Those life experiences include Rodgers’ past participation on TV (cough, the ABC reality dating series). “He’s used to talking in front of cameras,” adds Tebow. “So he’ll be great!”
Rodgers, also a former NFL quarterback, confirmed his new role during a conference call with reporters following the season 12 finale of The Bachelorette, in which he proposed to now fiancée JoJo Fletcher. “It’s a much more exciting chapter, but nothing really changes as far as what I’ll be doing,” the 28-year-old, who relocated to Fletcher’s Texas hometown, said Tuesday, August 2. “I’ll just be in Dallas doing that, and that’s what I’m really excited about.”
As for Tebow, after he was released from four NFL teams in five years, the Heisman Trophy winner decided to take a swing as an outfielder for the Mets. “I wasn’t getting another opportunity to play quarterback,” the Shaken author tells Us. “And baseball is a passion. It was surprising for people, but for me, this isn’t about the results. This is about not being afraid. Twenty years from now, I won’t have the regret of not striving for what I love.”
