I’m Coming Home: Tebow Signing With Jaguars ‘a Certainty’
Jets QB Tim Tebow is on his way back home if you believe reports. Word is that the Jets are guaranteed to let Tim go at the end of the season. That opens up a small list of possible teams that we could see #15 running the offense for in 2013.
If you remember back to the 2010 NFL Draft there was only a handful of teams that really wanted Tim: Denver, Buffalo, Jacksonville, and New England (rumored). We all know how that ended up.
Now that Tim is going to be a free agent after a stint in NY word is that we will finally see him on the Jaguars.
Here is the news, and my opinion on it:
According to ESPN.com’s Chris Mortensen, the Jacksonville Jaguars are a “virtual certainty” to acquire current New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow in 2013, via free agency or the trade route. Tebow, who remains a bit player with the Jets after the team bumped Greg McElroy above to starter following the decision to bench Mark Sanchez this week, has reportedly requested that the Jets trade or release him.
My thoughts: it looks like Shad Khan is ready to say “do it my way” to his management team. He tried Gabbert, he tried Henne and got the same results. Tebow is still not a great quarterback but has proven that if you build an offense to his strengths he can get the job done. Blaine Gabbert… not so much. It’s Tebow time in Jacksonville for better or worse.
