Tim Tebow still conjures up for many, an image of the wonder kid of American football, even if he has not seen NFL action for so long -- but you've got Hall of Famer Warren Moon saying he should just flourish at NFL as a host, according to TMZ Sports.

"Tim Tebow needs to move on from the NFL ... and STOP trying to get back in the league," Moon told the report, adding that he thought Tebow was already doing great off the field as a correspondent for "Good Morning America" and college football analyst for ESPN's SEC Network.

TMZ noted however that Tebow, while away, was training hard for the quarterback post, just in case someone comes along to bring him back to the premier American football league.

In July 2014, NFL.com came out with a discussion of Tebow's rejection from the league, citing Urban Meyer, Florida Gators coach of the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion.

"I still don't get that part of it ... He's the second-most efficient passer ever to play college football," he said, alluding to doubts about his ex-player's passing abilities.

The report noted that his decline at the league began when he was traded in 2011, his third and best season, from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets. He also trained with the New England Patriots but in August 2013 got cut, the report said.

"In the span of just over one season, he went from a national sensation who led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs, to a backup, to out of the NFL," said People.

In the meantime, Tebow, selected as among the sexiest men alive in 2014, has been involved with different advocacies.

According to another People report, the Tim Tebow Foundation has arranged for more than 7,000 kids with special needs prom events in participating churches in 26 states, titled Night to Shine. There will also be two locations in Uganda and Kenya in Africa.

"At least 100 people with special needs are expected to be in attendance at each (up to 50) church for this nationwide event," the website said. With a budget of $600,000, the foundation is making the proms grand, People noted.

There is also a senate bill named after him, said Mississippi network WTOK. The "Tim Tebow Act," authored by Sen. Joey Fillingane representing Tebow's home state, seeks to give home-schooled children the opportunity to access extracurricular activities.

Tebow is also good at golf, and his charm still captivates, based on his being an attraction at ESPN's pre-Super Bowl party, noted the New York Daily News.

But how long can he wait?

Meyer told NFL.com: "He'll be successful in whatever he does, but he's such a good player. I just wish it would work out for him."

He did do a lot sans a contract, as seen in the following Super Bowl ad.
