Update: The Mets have signed Tim Tebow and invited him to the Arizona Fall League.


The CFL may not have been enough for Tim Tebow to land in Canada, but perhaps the Blue Jays will sway him into coming up north.

The former NFL quarterback's pursuit of a baseball career has been met wth mixed reviews, but he's still attempting to follow his dreams after hosting a workout.

While it has been reported that the Braves have showed interest in the former Heisman Trophy winner, it seems Atlanta isn't the only club with their eye on him. The Blue Jays are "exploring" a union with Tebow after one of their scouts was impressed with his workout last week, according to Fox Sports.

It's unknown when a potential minor league deal between Tebow and any of the MLB teams will come to fruition or if he's event had discussions with any of them. Fox Sports reports that up to eight teams have shown some level of interest in the former quarterback.

Tebow received mixed reviews from scouts after holding a workout for 28 of the 30 MLB teams on Aug. 30. The former NFL star hasn't played baseball since high school, where he hit .498.

The man behind "Tebowmania" had a promising college football career, which included a Heisman Trophy win in 2007. In the NFL, he had runs with the Broncos, Jets, Patriots and Eagles, but after Philadelphia cut him last September prior to the season starting, another job in the NFL became hard to come by.

Tebow, who turned 29 on Aug. 14, owns a 47.9 career completion percentage and has thrown for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 35 games -- 16 of which were starts.

The news of Tebow hunting down a potential NFL career created quite a stir when it was announced by his agents and he has already made money off the endeavor by selling signed baseball memorabilia.

Tebow has insisted his MLB dreams aren't meant to be a distraction, and it seems more than one team is taking him seriously.
