Tim Tebow: Could 'Dancing with the Stars' be next?

tim-tebow-gi.jpgDenver Bronco Tim Tebow has proven he's capable of fancy footwork -- at least on a football field. But a turn on "Dancing with the Stars" would be the answer to pro Karina Smirnoff's prayers.

"All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on 'Dancing with the Stars," she said at her Las Vegas birthday bash on Saturday (Jan. 14). "Tim is a very talented athlete, that was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver."

Could her wish come true? It turns out Tebow played through what doctors are calling "considerable pain" on Sunday when his team lost the AFC divisional playoff game to the New England Patriots, so he'd need to recover before taking on another physically intense project.

Then there's the matter of timing. "Dancing's" 14th season is slated to kick off on March 19 and wrap up sometime in May. That could just work out if Tebow gets a clean bill of health. His schedule should be clear of football commitments until training camp kicks off in July.
