Philip Humber received a tweet from Jets quarterback Tim Tebow on Saturday following his perfect game against the Mariners.

"Congrats @Philip_Humber on accomplishing one of the greatest feats in all of sports! #PerfectGame," Tebow tweeted.

Humber fired the 21st perfect game in Major League Baseball history. One tweet stood out among the many congratulating Humber.

"Tim Tebow tweeted me," Humber said Monday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000.

"The funny thing about that is I tweeted him this offseason, and of course he's Tim Tebow and I'm Philip Humber ... compared to him I'm a nobody, but I didn't get a response. I was like, 'Aw man,' I was kind of hoping he'd tweet me back or something.'"
