Now if he comes out of the Commentator box and some team goes out to sign him, then sure he should be in Madden. Until that time, I believe there was a post a few pages back with a Tweet from Danny Moore that makes it look pretty clear that Tebow is not in the game.
He's not officially retired though, NFL.com and various other sites have recently shown videos of him working out and still practicing, he hasn't given up on football yet. So yes, he is still considered a "Free Agent".

I'm not sure what to think of the Moore tweet, or why the college/nfl success even matters, but the fact is, he is only 1 year removed from a team and has one of the largest followings. Just seems weird to not include him in a Free Agent pool with the hundreds of other guys.

He's not retired, I expect him to be in the free agency pool unless there are enough other QB scrubs that his ratings bump him into (debatably further) irrelevance leading to his exclusion.

Wouldn't get your hopes up, go to page three of this thread, first post on that page. I really don't think he will be in the game, and if he is, his ratings will probably suck.

Most people that want him are probably purely as a backup, goaline and wildcat QB, we aren't expecting anything special

I'm not, I just explained why I'd expect him to be there and why I could see him not making it due to low ratings.

No, the fact remains 32 NFL teams have decided he doesn't even deserve a spot on their practice squad. There are plenty of players who haven't officially filed their retirement papers that aren't in the FA pool. Why should Tebow be any different? Let me tell you a secret: Tebow and his 50% comp will never play football in the NFL again. Objective NFL fans know this.

Tebow isn't eligible for practice squad.

Care to share some names? Sitting here wondering which players have been omitted that have that much more right to be included in the Free Agent pool than Tebow.

Re: Tim Tebow as Free Agent in Madden NFL 15?

To be fair, I understand that the disinterest has as much to do with the media distraction as it does his terrible mechanics, inability to look off defenders, propensity to lock onto recievers, and historically abominable accuracy. Still, he'll never play at the NFL level again.

To be clear, I don't hate Tebow - I just think he sucks.
