Remember when Tim Tebow retired from football after he was practically told he wouldn’t play quarterback anymore, and teams wanted him to play tight end?
Well, I guess the guy is getting the itch for football again, because according to ESPN, the Jacksonville Jaguars intend to sign him on a one-year deal as a tight end.
A lot has gone on in Tebow’s life since his retirement from the game, as he became an analyst for ESPN, got married (and lost his virginity presumably), and even had a short stint as a minor league baseball player with the New York Mets organization.
However, the guy is a huge advocate for health, and has been training daily, staying in NFL caliber shape. He’s only 33 years old, so he still has a few years left in him if he can stay healthy.
He also is a Jacksonville native so all the stars are really lining up for him…
But perhaps the coolest part about the whole ordeal though, is the fact that he’ll be coached by his college coach at the University of Florida, Urban Meyer, who was recently named head coach of the Jaguars.
Does he deserve it? Who knows (probably not)… but if Urban Meyer isn’t the coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, something tells me this doesn’t happen.
But I’m not gonna lie, I’m actually pretty excited to see how this plays out.
His starting quarterback will be Trevor Lawrence, and as a huge Clemson fan, it’ll be pretty cool if we get to hear “Lawrence to Tebow for six” this fall.
