Last Thursday was one of the most eventful days of the NFL year. Yes, the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft took place that night, but there were other shocking developments that were brought to light even before the Jacksonville Jaguars were officially put on the clock. Aaron Rodgers – The Green Bay Packers debate was certainly a story that caught attention, but another report had to do with former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.
On Thursday, the NFL Network reported that Tebow recently worked for the Jaguars. Not as a quarterback, but as a tight end! This week, Tony Khan, Jaguars’ chief football strategy manager and son of team owner Shad Khan, told Bleacher Report that new head coach Urban Meyer really believes Tebow can help this team win.
“Tim has definitely come in and trained,” Khan said, (H / T Pro football speech). “So beyond that I can not say too much, but Tim has come in and worked as a tight end. It is not a position that we have seen him play, but it is a position that he has practiced with us. So it will be interesting to see how it also contributes to us in crime.Of course Urban knows Tim really well and Tim has a great history of winning.Urban really believes he can help us and I think it gives a lot of meaning. And that’s a position where we need to get better. “

Tebow was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and even won a playoff game in its second season. However, after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning the following offseason, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets and was soon out of the league.
Tight end is a position we have not seen Tebow play, but the 33-year-old has a legitimate connection with the Jaguars’ new head coach. Back during his collegiate days at the University of Florida, Tebow and Meyer won two BCS national championships. Under Meyer’s guidance, Tebow was also a two-time SEC Player of the Year and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007. The two’s parents have stayed close – even literally. According to real estate documents obtained by the Jacksonville Daily Record, Meyer has just purchased a new home in southern Jacksonville, located just three doors down from Tebow. Pen still should not be put to PR, but this would be one of the most interesting signatures in recent memory.
