Jets QB Tim Tebow Working Out with Famous MMA Trainer Rener Gracie

Many in New York and across the country seem to think that Tim Tebow is going to find his way to the starting QB job this season with the Jets.

If that’s the case, the training he’s doing now is only going to help him.

Seems that Tebow has been training in the wild and crazy world of MMA, taking up training sessions with the world famous Gracie family.

Rener Gracie tweeted a welcome to Tebow and later after the fact tweeted out “He’s a natural!”

If your not familiar with The Gracie family, they are the most well MMA family alive, known for their Brazilian jiu-jitsu. The martial art is a self-defense system that focuses on ground-fighting and is known for enabling smaller combatants to ward off bigger foes with savvy use of leverage and technique.

It will be interesting to see if the training of Tebow is going to help him unseat Mark Sanchez this season with the Jets.

    What if Tim Tebow actually “unseats” Sanchez? I’m very glad that the Jets are going to have this distraction. This can only mean good things for the Buffalo Bills.
