Since hiring Urban Meyer to become the head coach, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been making moves signing Shaquill Griffin, Roy Robertson-Harris, and drafting players like Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne. With the season just a few months away, Jacksonville is not done making moves. On Monday, it was reported that the team is expected to sign Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal. The contract is not yet official, but it could be official in the next week or so. Even though Tebow was seen last in the NFL as a Quarterback, Tebow worked out with Jacksonville as a Tight End.
In 35 games played with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, Tebow threw for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns, 9 interceptions with a Quarterback Rating of 75.3. After his time with Denver and New York, Tebow spent time with the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles but was cut before the regular season on both occasions.
After getting cut by Philadelphia during the 2015 Preseason, Tebow signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets and spent 5 seasons playing in the minor league. New York only used Tebow during Spring Training in 2020 where he hit a two-run home run against the Detriot Tigers. Just after the team put him on the 2021 Spring Training Roster, Tebow retired from baseball.
With Urban Meyer as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tebow will be playing with his head coach from his time with Florida. Even though Tebow has been out of the NFL since 2015, Tebow will have a chance in training camp to move up the depth chart in Jacksonville and win a spot on the regular-season roster.
