Tim Tebow is trading in football pads for a baseball glove. The Heisman Trophy winner has given up on resurrecting his NFL career and will try to play professional baseball, his agents told ESPN on Tuesday. Tebow plans to invite all 30 MLB teams to a workout at the end of August to show off his skills.

The out-of-work quarterback has been training to play baseball for the past year, according to his agents. This isn’t Tebow’s first time picking up a bat: He was an all-state baseball player during his junior year of high school and hit a .494. But he has not played full-time since 2005.

Tebow, who will turn 29 on Sunday, was released by the Eagles in September of last year after short stints with the Jets and the Patriots. Recently, the former Denver Bronco’s quarterback acted as an ESPN broadcaster for college football.
