Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow said he could one day explore politics "if it's something I care about."

Tebow said he wouldn't rule out a potential future run for office during an interview with Dave Feherty -- host of the Golf Channel's "Feherty Live" -- that's set to air 10 p.m. Saturday.

"I don't know -- it could be something in my future," Tebow said, according to Politico. "If it's something I care about, possibly."

Though Tebow has sparked controversy over his strong religious views, the 2012 Republican presidential candidates have worked to associate themselves with the famous quarterback. Texas governor Rick Perry -- who dropped out of the GOP primary race ahead of the South Carolina primary -- even once compared himself to the athlete during a debate, saying "I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses."

Despite the fact that several GOP hopefuls have reached out to the NFL star hoping to win his backing, Tebow has yet to endorse a presidential candidate.
