Tim Tebow is not in the Jaguars' plans

New, comments

Even if he's released.

If there was any lasting doubt that Jaguars owner Shad Khan could make a push for free agent quarterback Tim Tebow, it was put to rest on Monday when Khan's representative, Jim Woodcock, told Jonny Saraceno of USA Today, "The Jacksonville Jaguars' plans do not include Tim Tebow.''

It should not be surprising news to anyone who has followed the Jaguars since the hire of general manager Dave Caldwell, who has repeatedly said that the team will not be interested in Tebow. In his introductory press conference, Caldwell caught headlines for telling the media that Tebow wouldn't be a member of the team, "even if he's released."

The only remaining question was whether Khan would step in to try and force a move to acquire Tebow as he did during the 2012 offseason. While Khan had previously said that he wouldn't do that with Caldwell in 2013, it was officially put to rest by Woodcock.

Tebow, 25, has been consistently linked to the Jaguars over the last 3-4 years after he had a very successful collegiate career with the Florida Gators. In three seasons in the NFL he has completed 47.9 percent of his passes with 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
