Former Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow wants to play professional baseball next, according to ESPN.

Tebow's agents told ESPN that Tebow has been training for the past year to become a better batter and outfielder and plans to hold a workout for Major League Baseball teams later this month.

Tebow was an All-State baseball player in high school.

"Tim's athletic ability, his work ethic, his leadership and his competitiveness were evident in football and will show in baseball," agent Jimmy Sexton said.

Tebow played for the Broncos in 2010 and 2011, then the New York Jets in 2012. He went to training camp with the New England Patriots in 2013 and played in the preseason with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015.

He's currently an announcer for ESPN.
