This may be Tim Tebow's best shot to get back in the NFL.

The league announced on Thursday that it will hold a first annual veteran training combine in Arizona on March 22.

The combine will have position-specific drills, timing, and testing for all 32 teams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. But the event will not be open to everyone.

Interested players can apply online and hope that they are among "roughly 100 players" that will be invited by the NFL. All players accepted must pay a $400 fee and pass a physical examination.

As for Tebow, he has enjoyed success post-football as an analyst for ESPN's SEC Network, but isn't ready to let his NFL dream die just yet. There's no question that he has $400 handy.

Other notable players the combine may attract include Kevin Kolb, Richie Incognito, Asante Samuel, Mikel Leshoure, Jermichael Finley, and a boatload of kickers.

The 2015 free agency signing period will begin March 10.
