It seems imminent that Tim Tebow will as soon as once more play within the NFL, although not at his authentic place.
Tebow reportedly will signal with the Jaguars underneath his former faculty coach City Meyer — not as a quarterback, however as a decent finish. The transfer makes some sense, particularly contemplating Meyer, for higher or worse, usually sticks with gamers and coaches with whom he has related up to now. The transfer could increase eyebrows across the league, however Tebow, a Florida native, will instantly be a fan favourite in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars additionally drafted Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 general decide of the 2021 NFL Draft, so it is smart Tebow — who hasn’t performed within the league since 2015 — would make the transfer to tight finish. It is a transfer many pundits recommended he make after he was drafted by the Broncos with the twenty fifth decide of the 2010 NFL Draft: Regardless of his unimaginable profession as Florida’s Heisman Trophy- and nationwide championship-winning quarterback, his mechanics merely did not translate to the NFL.
Sadly, Tebow hasn’t precisely been a prolific pass-catcher, both. He has a profession complete of 1 goal in his NFL profession, which got here in 2012 as a member of the Jets. The goal in query got here within the third quarter of New York’s Week 3 sport towards the Dolphins. The Jets gained 23-20 in extra time to maneuver to 1-2 on the season.
Tebow — listed as a starter at fullback — motioned to the left, ran a flat route and will solely flinch as Mark Sanchez’s move ricocheted off his helmet:
Tebow’s solely different performs of significance within the sport had been a 5-yard rush and a rush that resulted in a lack of 5 yards. So, a web acquire of zero yards for the day.
That is the kind of fodder that may make rounds by way of NFL message boards and subreddits alike, however at the very least this time Tebow will truly be totally devoted to taking part in — and practising — on the place.
Now all that is left to do is for Jacksonville to signal him.
