08:04 AM ET 07.06 | From Florida, to Denver, to New York, to ... the octagon workout? Like a growing number of NFL players, Jets quarterback/personal punt protector Tim Tebow has decided to spend his non-football time engaged in MMA training. Unlike many of the players who engage in MMA training, Tebow hasn't engaged the services of FOX's Jay Glazer. According to TMZ, Tebow is working out with the "legendary" Gracie family. ... The extent of Tebow's MMA training isn't known. And it's also not completely known whether it's effective, especially for a quarterback. After all, Matt Leinart once did it.

MMA training? What would Jesus do? If The Lord had given Judas a flying drop-kick, he'd have way more fans today.

Yup...that should help make him a better QB.

Sure..great to follow Matt Leinart's lead. It will lead to clipboard holder extraordinaire.

Lethal.




Remember the RB in the movie, "The Last Boy Scout"?

Interesting, I guess. Seems more suited for LBs or guys in the trenches so I'm not sure what he's hoping to gain other than some good cardio workout.

More interested in Glazer's training. I'd heard about this previously but found this profile on him if anyone's interested.

THE NY MEDIA BETTER WATCH OUT. HE'S GONNA KICK BUTT AND JESUS TALK YOU TO DEATH. MORE POWER TO HIM FOR BELIEVING IN SOMETHING, BUT THIS NY EXPERIMENT WILL FAIL TERRIBLY, AND THE MMA WILL COME IN HANDY.

Matt Leinart might have gotten a chance if he'd been backing up Sanchez.

Tim will be in the wildcat running the ball thus he'll need the MMA training to run over LBs.

I heard he didn't tap... but then again I dont think he had a choice...

Watching film of NFL QB's would be a better expenditure of his time.

At least he isn't getting arrested. He's simply staying in shape, and perhaps having fun doing it. You are only that age once, and you don't get younger. If it's something you want to do, then go for it before you're too old.

Getting ready for his second career when he grows tired of holding clipboards.

I believe I would have to watch that. Course I'm going to see "Abe Lincoln Vampire Slayer" tomorrow. Sometimes things just sound so bad you have to see for yourself
