While fans and writers here have voiced their opinion on wanting to bring in Tim Tebow one way or the other, one thing that is often forgotten is how a move of that magnitude will effect a locker room. The Jacksonville Jaguars have worked hard to build a good locker room of players and a stable group of players. Injecting in a circus like what Tim Tebow could bring could not only shatter a fragile fan base that's clearly divided on the issue, but it could also disrupt a very strong locker room.
One player in particular who does not want the Jaguars to make a move for Tim Tebow is starting guard Uche Nwaneri.
Do we really need a 3rd QB??? #justsayin— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
Maybe ppl dont realize that @BlaineGabbert was a rookie put in the worst of situations last year. QB was not the underlying problem WR was— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
@FloridaTrekkers I dont want that circus in our locker room. What is it gonna look like when Blaine throws his 1st incompletion of the year?— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
@FloridaTrekkers We are gonna be hearing ppl scream #Tebow on opening day, once that happens u might as well call it a season. #gameover— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
@WileyD @FloridaTrekkers I DONT WANT TEBOW CHANTS IN EVERBANK WHEN WE ARE PLAYING FOOTBALL ON SUNDAYS. I WANT #WEAREJAGUARS CHANTS!— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
@kevinc2415 so ur saying u would spend money to see 1 player sit on the bench? #itsurMoney— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
@kevinc2415 @BlaineGabbert well i can promise you bringing in the #Broncos old "QB" aint gonna help things— Uche Nwaneri (@Chukwu77) March 20, 2012
Nwaneri has long been vocal he's not a Tim Tebow fan, dating back to the offseason prior to the 2010 NFL Draft. Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton also displayed his disinterest on twitter as well when he found out about fake twitter accounts tweeting that a trade had been made.
I'm sure Uche will read this, but he knows this isn't stirring the pot. It's a look inside the locker room, as Uche has always been a player willing to tell it like it is after games, on the radio, etc.
