The Jaguars are in bad shape at the tight end position-we’ve known this since the offseason began. There’s a lack of experience and talent on the depth chart, and the Jaguars front office said they were expecting to add to the position. So where do they turn?
Former Broncos and Jets QB and Mets OF, and former Florida Gator QB Tim Tebow.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Tebow reached out to the Jaguars and requested a tryout at the tight end position. He recently worked out with the newest Jaguars TE coach, Tyler Bowen.
Schefter says that there has been no decision made on his signing.
Tebow played for new Jaguars Head Coach Urban Meyer at Florida from 2007 to 2010, winning two championships and a Heisman trophy. He was selected with the 25th pick in the first round by the Denver Broncos, where he passed for 17 touchdowns, while also rushing for 12 touchdowns.
After Tebow’s time with the Broncos ended, rumors swirled about Tebow switching to tight end, but he never did, opting to play baseball. The 33 year-old posted a career .223 batting average in the minors.
The connection to Meyer is real with Tebow, and we’ve seen crazier happen.
