We all know Tim Tebow is bad at quarterbacking, bad at throwing, bad at NFL football. There was even talk he could be out of the league once he was released by the New York Jets. After all he know how much Mark Sanchez sucks; and if you can’t beat him out for the position. And then he couldn’t even beat out the other guy, the kid from Alabama, well the future is not so bright.
But it looks like he’ll get another chance with the Jacksonville Jaguars. ESPN has already sent out an internal memo to all their staff to ramp up their Jaguars coverage 3000 %
sources say the Jets are likely to honor Tebow’s forthcoming request to be released and therefore become an unrestricted free agent.
Circumstances in Jacksonville have changed since Tebow chose the Jets over the Jaguars when he was traded by the Denver Broncos in March.
Jacksonville owner Shad Khan wanted Tebow, but there was no assurance that the former Heisman Trophy winner would get an opportunity to play because the team was still committed to 2011 first-round pick Blaine Gabbert.
In 2013, the Jaguars will have an open quarterback competition and a team source conceded it’s a “high likelihood” Tebow will be part of the mix.
So yes, Tebow is headed home, to the team desperate to sell tickets; and he’ll be the perfect draw. This is the team that should have drafted him in the first place. It’s where he was home-schooled. It’s close to where he played college football with the Florida Gators.
