DENVER (CBS4) – It turns out the season really is over for Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow after he declined an invitation to appear on CBS’s NFL Today this Sunday.
CBS had asked Tebow to sit down for NFL Today with Shannon Sharpe and the rest of the gang before the AFC Championship game.
USA Today’s Michael Hiestand first tweeted the decision by Tebow on Tuesday.
“Tim Tebow has decided not to appear,” CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said, according to USA Today. “[CBS]is perfectly fine with the (on-air) lineup we have.”
It’s easy to see why the network, which owns CBS4, wanted to keep Tebow on. The last two Broncos games have had huge ratings around the nation.
Tebow and the Broncos suffered a tough 45-10 loss in Foxboro on Saturday night against the Patriots in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in their AFC Wild Card matchup.
