Tim Tebow is the type of guy who gets what he wants.

NFL quarterback? Sure, why not? TV analyst? Pick a network. Baseball player? The Mets would be happy to oblige.

But that doesn’t fly with Bill Belichick.

Back in 2013, after being traded away from the Broncos and spending a season with the New York Jets, Tebow signed a two-year deal with the New England Patriots. During the offseason, the former Heisman Trophy winner was offered $1 million to take part in a one-day commercial shoot.

But, being the team player that he was, he made sure to give Mr. Hoodie a call, to make sure it’d be A-OK.

I’ll give you one guess what Belichick’s response was …

“So when the offer for the one-day commercial turned up, I was sure to discuss the opportunity with him (Belichick). ‘I want to know what you think, Coach,’ I said. ‘I respect you and I want to fit in. I want to be one of the guys. Should I do it?’

“He thought for a moment and then shook his head. ‘Timmy, I would really appreciate it if you didn’t.’

“Highly respecting the man, I turned down the deal. I didn’t even think twice about it. I wanted the chance to impress Coach Belichick more than I wanted the money. I’ll say that if I were on any other team, I would have probably said yes to the offer. But the thoughts he offered in our initial conversation mattered to me — even more than a million dollars.”

Not long after, Tebow was cut by Belichick and the Patriots.

While appearing on Fox and Friends, Tebow said he doesn’t regret his decision to turn down $1 million.

“And that’s not something that I look back and regret at all,” Tebow said. It was me trying to honor the team, and if I could do it again, I would’ve done the same thing.”

Well, that’s why you’re one of a kind, Timmy.
