Highly drafted NFL QBs like Akili Smith and Eric Crouch have come to the NFL after having their careers fizzle out early. It is not out of the realm of possibility. If Tebow wants to play football as a QB, it may have to be in the CFL, and it may be a year or two before he starts. ESPN analyst and CFL football fan Chris Berman mentioned during the NFL draft the other day that he feels Tebow should come North for his best shot at reviving his career. A poll on either nfl.com or espn.com had 48% of Americans thinking that Tebow would end up in the CFL next (not another NFL team). A poll on cfl.ca yesterday has something close to 50% believing that Tebow COULD be an effective QB in the CFL.

Not to mention Tebow attended the Eskimos "secret" mini camp in Florida two weeks (according to the Edmonton Sun), with it being unclear whether he participated or not. That definitely shows some type of an interest to me if true.

Tebow is clearly a big topic of discussion right now in the football world and it definitely belongs in a CFL off-season thread. (No different than speculating about European or KHL players who might venture to the NHL). The religious aspect of this does not, as the mod already said.
well Dave Campbell has a re-tweet of Dave Benefield, suggesting it's not so simple

Great NCAA qbs r eaten by #CFL Tebow stay away i beg you. Trying to learn to play qb in cfl is like learning 2 drive @daytona or surf @Jaws.
Tebow could make a good fullback, but that's about it.
