Urban Meyer: Tim Tebow still has hopes of NFL comeback

Tim Tebow has not yet given up on his NFL hopes, at least according to his old coach.

Tim Tebow may be out of the league but that doesn’t mean the clock for "Tebow Time" has necessarily struck 12.

Urban Meyer, Tebow’s head coach at the University of Florida and now leader of the Buckeyes program, said in an interview with CBSSports.com’s Jeremy Fowler that the quarterback is still hoping for another shot in the NFL.

"You’d imagine how he works. Works every day. He’s hoping. There are some conversations about it. I don’t know too much. There’s hope and he says there’s stuff going on," Meyer said when asked about Tebow trying to make it back to the big leagues.

Tebow is currently signed up as an analyst for the SEC Network but one last chance at his NFL dream would surely pull him away from that. His time in the NFL was a whirlwind, from a playoff win in Denver to getting cut by both the New York Jets and New England Patriots.

On the subject of quarterbacks, Meyer also discussed one of his own right now, Braxton Miller, who will go through a "Gruden QB Camp."

"We’re having him watch DVDs. I think Jon Gruden does a heckuva job with quarterbacks. I tried last year (to get him to come). So we’re just doing it ourselves. I would try him again. He’s a busy guy," Meyer said.

Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman will simulate the role of Gruden.
