    'Officer' Tim Tebow?

    Atlantic City Police are keeping their job offer to former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and current New York Mets minor league baseball player Tim Tebow but they don't expect him to take them up on the offer.

    The South Jersey Police department tweeted out a photoshopped image of "Officer Tebow" congratulating him on hitting a home run in his first instructional league at bat in the Mets' system.

    AC police wished Tebow luck and said they guessed "there won’t be an Officer Tebow." Over the summer, AC Police offered him a job in case pro sports don't work out.

    Tebow last played in the NFL last season with the Eagles, getting cut shortly before the season opener. His Christian beliefs, positive attitude and leadership has gained him massive fame despite his NFL career (one playoff win and a 75.3 passing rating) never living up to the hype generated after he won a Heisman Trophy and two NCAA BCS National Championships at the University of Florida.

    He turned his attention to baseball this summer and inked a minor league deal with the Mets after a tryout for various major league teams. Top Sports PhotosTop Sports Photos
