Is there such a thing as a backup politician? Tim Tebow might become the first.

You might not want him quarterbacking your team, but would you vote for Sen. Tim Tebow?

Asked about a possible run for office after retiring from football, Tebow said, "I haven't ruled it out," in an interview with ESPN New York on Tuesday.

"It won't be anytime soon in my future, but it'll be something I'll at least look at and consider one day," he added.

The Jets quarterback went on to say that five years after football he wants to continue to make a difference in people's lives.

"I want to do that while I'm playing football, and I want to do that after I'm done playing football," Tebow said. "I want to do that until the day I die because I don't look at that as a profession or a career."

Is there such thing as a backup politician? If so, Tebow would be great at diverting bad press by making headlines of his own, juking by and barreling through barbs from rival candidates and occasionally delivering promises with little to no accuracy.

On the season, the most popular quarterback in the world has completed zero passes on zero attempts for zero yards. He's added 33 yards on six rushes out of the Jets' option offense. It's not a Wildcat; that's when a non-quarterback lines up under center. (That is, unless by calling it a Wildcat offense, the Jets are saying Tebow is not a quarterback.)
