Tim Tebow is back in the news, albeit with slightly more controversy this time.
According to The New York Times, the former NFL quarterback will speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week.
The Times reports Tebow will join a diverse group of public figures, including Florida attorney general Pam Bondi, Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel and UFC president Dana White, at the convention.
It’s no secret that Trump is a Tebow fan, but it wasn’t previously know the former Heisman Trophy winner supported the controversial Queens, New York City, native.
