Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a tight end, according to Ian Rapoport.
“The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so,” Rapoport Tweeted. “Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.”
The significance of the Jaguars picking up Tebow goes in a variety of different directions. First, as stated by Ian Rapoport, Tebow will have the chance to reunite with his college head coach Urban Meyer, with whom he won a national title for the University of Florida football team. Secondly, Tebow has not been on a NFL roster since he was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles on September 5, 2015. Thirdly, Tebow will play for his hometown team — as he went to high school in Jacksonville.
There are a significant amount of other huge factors of significance going into the new Tebow deal. But now the mystery lies in what the deal will entail.
