Tim Tebow, the god-fearing former NFL quarterback who now wants to play professional baseball, has signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets.

The Mets announced Thursday that the former quarterback will take part in the Instructional League in Port St. Lucie, Florida, reported The Associated Press.

The 29-year-old aspiring outfielder went through drills at the University of Southern California's field last week in front of dozens of major league scouts and reporters.

Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy at Florida and played on the 2006 and 2008 national championship teams with the Gators.

Tebow played for the Denver Broncos and New York Jets in the NFL from 2010-2012. He was with the New England Patriots in 2013 preseason and Philadelphia Eagles in the 2015 preseason.
