Texas Governor Greg Abbott knows who he wants the Dallas Cowboys to sign to replace starting quarterback Tony Romo.
Abbott took to Twitter on Monday, just one day after Romo was injured during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Romo is expected to be out for 8-10 weeks, KBMT-TV reported.
Bittersweet victory for @Cowboys. Win game but lose @TonyRomo. Maybe Dallas will sign @TimTebow. #NFL.— Greg Abbott (@Greg Abbott) 1442792270.0
"Bittersweet victory for @Cowboys. Win game but lose @TonyRomo. Maybe Dallas will sign @TimTebow. #NFL," Abbott tweeted from his personal account.
Tebow is currently an analyst for ESPN. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2010 and was later traded to the New York Jets, and then to the New England Patriots. He spent a short stint with the Philadelphia Eagles during the preseason but was cut before the team's opening game.
Tebow is known to display his Christian faith both on and off the football field, most notably for his kneeling position, often referred to as "Tebowing."
