Tony Khan suggests Jaguars will sign Tim Tebow as tight end
Not only has it been confirmed that former NFL quarterback and former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow worked with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a tight end even though the 33-year-old did not participate. to a regular season game since 2012.. Managing Director of Jaguars Trent Baalke the club said last week would address Tebow’s issue at some point after the NFL Draft that ended on Saturday, and Tony Khan, Jacksonville’s director of football strategy, the son of franchise owner Shad Khan, told Tuesday at Bleacher Report that a meeting between Tebow and head coach Urban Meyer may be imminent.
“Tim definitely came in and worked,” Tony Khan explained, by Michael david smith by Pro Football Talk. “So beyond that I can’t say too much, but Tim came in and worked like a tight end. It’s not a position we’ve seen him play, but it’s a position he’s training with us. So it will be interesting to see how that contributes to us on the attack as well. Obviously, Urban knows Tim very well and Tim has a great history of winning. Urban really believes he can help us, and I think that makes a lot of sense. And this is a position where we need to improve. ”
Tebow had the greatest successes of his footballing career playing under Meyer at the University of Florida, and it is believed that Meyer would like to use quitting baseball in the minor leagues in the same way the New Saints did. Orleans use Taysom Hill as a so-called Swiss Army Knife. offensive weapon. Meyer would also likely ask Tebow to mentor rookie and first-draft pick Trevor Lawrence throughout the summer and, perhaps, fall.
