Tim Tebow Discusses Possible Future In Politics, Wife In 'Vogue' Interview

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Tim Tebow can't seem to keep his shirt on.

The most talked-about man in New York sports gave an interview to Vogue and is featured in a series of pictures shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

"There are a lot of goals and ambitions that I have in life, things I want to accomplish. Who knows? I mean-it could be politics one day," Tebow said. "I want to have a life that can help people."

Tebow raised eyebrows in a recent interview by saying he hadn't ruled out a post-football move to the political arena. Prior to the Republican National Convention, rumors were swirling Tebow was going to be the surprise guest speaker — a spot ultimately taken by Clint Eastwood.

He also discussed what he's looking for in a future Mrs. Tebow.

"I definitely, definitely want a family," Tebow said. "It's about finding someone sweet and kind—and that has a servant's heart. It's about finding a girl who likes me for me, and not because of what I do or who I am or the name."

Tebow also again reiterated his camaraderie with Mark Sanchez.

"It's not fake," Tebow told the magazine. "I can say that honestly I'm rooting for him to do his best."

Recently there were rumors Tebow might be traded from the Jets.

The October issue of Vogue hits newsstands Sept. 25.
