Tim Tebow just got the boot from the New York Jets last month, but instead of hanging his head low, he now has something to celebrate!

The football star recently topped Forbes' 2013 list of America's Most Influential Athletes, and even though he played as a part-time quaterback behind the Jets' Mark Sanchez, he's still an athlete that Americans can't help but love.

Senior Vice President of Sports for Nielsen, Stephen Master said:

“For a backup quarterback to be talked about so much is incredible."

In an E-Poll that was conducted over the past several months, 29 percent of respondents dubbed Tebow as "influential," which came to a surprise, considering that he was blamed for NY's 6-10 record last year.

But at the end of the day, since Tim didn't even play, he couldn't be at fault for what his former team accomplished during the 2012-2013 season, so we're just happy the 25-year-old quarterback is getting noticed!

Good job, Tebow!!

Wanna know who else made the list???

Take a look-see (below)!
