It’s no secret that Tim Tebow’s road to returning to football was not gonna be an easy one.
The man had been out of football for seven years, played a completely different sport in between, and had to learn a completely new position in tight end. The odds of success were very unlikely, especially when you have elite athletes who’ve been playing tight end their whole lives competing against you.
Tebow’s debut as a tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars was… well… less than stellar, to say the least.
He looked a bit lost when he was running routes, didn’t look polished as a blocker, and while he technically made this piss poor block, he blew up the play on the next one after a few defensive linemen just casually tossed him off the line.
Although he got the boot, he still left his mark in Jacksonville in his short stint there.
His jersey became the number one seller for the organization, and Jaguar quarterback Trevor Lawrence often spoke about his leadership abilities on the field and in the locker room. And perhaps the best thing? All the focus seemed to be on Tebow and not their #1 overall pick, rookie quarterback.
