Jacksonville Jaguars Remain Only Realistic Option for Tim Tebow in NFL

Tim Tebow

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Speculation is running rampant (on some networks) as to what’s next in Tim Tebow‘s football career. The popular quarterback was of course released by the New England Patriots over the weekend and now his NFL future is looking very bleak. The Pats were the only team to even give him a chance this offseason to make a roster and he didn’t really show anything during his time in the preseason that’s going to persuade other teams to give him shot.

Some people think the CFL could be in Tebow’s future, but I’m not one of them. Quarterbacks in the CFL need strong, accurate arms to be able to throw across the larger field (110 x 65 vs. 100 x 53.5). A bigger field is the last thing the lefty-QB needs.

Then of course you have the possibility of the Arena League. An AFL team would most certainly welcome the popular QB with open arms, but I highly doubt Tebow would go for that. Even after all of his struggles the last couple years, he remains steadfast that he’s going to be an NFL QB. You have to respective his determination, but how realistic are his dreams at this point? Not very.

However, there’s one team that still makes sense – the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tebow is of course from the Jacksonville area and talk of the Jaguars acquiring him has taken place in the past. To this point, the team has passed on the local hero, but I’m not sold that will be the case moving forward.

The Jaguars are preparing for another uncertain season at the QB position. Blaine Gabbert has to be down to his last chance as the team’s starter and backup Chad Henne is clearly not their signal-caller of the future. Odds are, Jacksonville will be looking for a new QB in 2014. You’d think they’d look to the draft first, but if they’re unable to secure a franchise QB via that route – why not bring in Tebow?

If nothing else, he would make the team instantly more popular, which would of course mean more money and fans in seats for the struggling franchise. The team would have to tailor its offense to fit Tebow’s skill set, but what would they have to lose if 2013 ends up being another woeful campaign?

It’s just a hypothetical scenario, but other than the Jaguars, who would make sense for Tebow?

      Listen to me “angry-inch” Cease and desist with the F-bomb:
      it just shows your lack of breeding and lack of intelligence.–
      FIRST of all: it’s NOT what YOU want!! Are YOU the owner of the team?
      NO? I didn’t think so.
      Football is about competition. You take your 11 guys and I’ll take my 11 guys and we’ll see which team pushes around the other team.
      MOST points win.
      It’s about having a blast! IT is FUN.
      Tebow is of the new breed running back,/ fullback, / quarterback hybrid.
      Think Larry Csonka who can pass, barely.
      Think about John Riggins and his O. Line “the HOGS” !!

      Back to the hybrid thing: Just like an electric car: runs on gas + runs on electricity. Nevermind all that:
      RUN, RUN, RUN, sneak a pass in there.
      God loves you, man and gave Himself for you on the cross. No simpler true is that except while you were a sinner, God in Christ died for you. He is the Savior of lost men.

      TIM Tebow already grasped this eternal truth.
      That is why some preachers want Tebow in their church preaching the Gospel; For God so loved the world that He gave his ONE and Only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
      SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

      Tebow wants to play football.
      Now he wants to join a team. A TEAM of 11 offense and 11 defense + special teamers & back up studs to play football.

      NOBODY cares what “Whoaa Nelly Johnson” thinks or wants.
      Just like in Denver: Tebow was put in to satisfy the hundreds of thousands of fans who wanted to see this man play. In fact they were clammoring to see Tim play: they put up billboards, took out ads, flooded the teams phones.

      Wherever Tim ends up, he is a winner. Let’s not be jealous or angry/upset.
      Tim will do whatever he can do: TO WIN

      P.S. One last thing for YOU “Whoaa Nelly Johnson” : Do you even wonder what Tebow spends his $$money$$ on? He doesn’t drive a Lamborghini.

      Go to:

      and see what this wonderful man is doing ALL OVER the planet.
      You will be amazed! You may even be blessed (even though it’s not a religious website.)

    Did you write this article several years ago man? It’s like you took a big poop and spread it all over my computer screen. Nothing about this article is relevant or logical.

    Jacksonville will be one of the worst teams….again. Seems like a lot of jags fans love their losing ways. They want Blane Gabbert and another 2-14 year. This is probably the only team where fans would prefer losing over winning. Why? Whats the point? What is the objective if its not winning? Tebow wins. Gabbert does not. Tebow has 7 4th quarter comebacks in 16 starts. Tebow has a playoff win. What does Gabbert have besides several losing seasons? Gabbert never has and never will start a playoff game in his life.
