It’s Tebow Time for the Jaguars.
Jacksonville intends to sign Tebow, now a tight end, to a one-year contract, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday afternoon. Tebow played quarterback in the NFL from 2010 through 2012 and hasn’t been on a roster since he was released by the New York Jets in March of 2012.
The college football legend since has worked in TV and attempted a professional baseball career, which he officially ended in February.
Here’s Rapoport’s report:
Whether Tebow will be good enough to earn a spot on the Jaguars’ regular season roster is anybody’s guess. He’ll turn 34 years old in August and is nearly a decade removed from professional football, after all.
Nevertheless, his story will be among the most interesting to follow as the summer progresses.
