A new addition to Team Tebow might signal a career change for the out-of-work quarterback. Tim Tebow recently signed a broadcast agent at noted talent agency CAA, as first reported by Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal.

As noted by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the changes in Tebow's representation could be the first step toward a broadcasting career.
Tim Tebow hired prominent broadcast agent CAA’s Nick Khan to join Jimmy Sexton in repping him. If no NFL, will look at college TV jobs.

Despite a handful of NFL teams dealing quarterbacks injuries during the 2013 season, Tebow has remained a free agent since the New England Patriots cut him before the season started. The former Florida Gators star tweeted shortly after his release that he "will remain in relentless pursuit... of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."
Has that pursuit come to a halt?
