Tim Tebow has his next football job - talking about the sport on TV.
The Heisman Trophy winner has been hired as a college football analyst for the new SEC Network in a return to his Florida glory days, but he still hopes to play quarterback in the NFL.
Tebow will appear on SEC Nation, a pregame show that will travel to a different campus each week after the channel launches in August. The multiyear deal "will not preclude him from continuing to pursue playing opportunities in the NFL," ESPN, which runs the network, said in a statement Monday.
Police in suburban Atlanta say the younger brother of Eagles backup quarterback Michael Vick has been arrested for DUI and traffic violations. Marcus Vick was pulled over early Monday in Cumming, Ga., for an expired tag and was questioned about marijuana after a deputy allegedly smelled the drug in his car. Police say Vick was driving without a license and told officers he smoked pot about four hours before. Investigators reported finding a large sum of money but no drugs inside the car. Vick is charged with DUI, driving without a license, and driving with an expired tag. The ex-Virginia Tech QB was being held in the county jail on $4,100 bond.
The NFL acknowledged that referees erred in not penalizing the Chargers for an illegal formation on a missed 41-yard field goal attempt by Ryan Succop of the Chiefs with four seconds left in regulation on Sunday. Succop was wide right on the kick, and the Chargers went on to win, 27-24, in overtime to claim the AFC's final playoff spot. The Pittsburgh Steelers would have been in the postseason had Kansas City won.
The NFL said in a statement that the penalty should have been called by referee Bill Leavy's crew, moving the ball 5 yards closer to the end zone and giving Succop another attempt.
It's possible that when the league reviews the Denver Broncos' 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Peyton Manning's single-season yardage record could be in danger.
