Tim Tebow is coming back to the NFL. After a six-year hiatus, the Jaguars plan to sign the former NFL quarterback to a one-year deal, CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones confirmed. As previously reported, Tebow will play tight end for the Jaguars.
Tim Tebow Hes A Winner, 33, recently worked out for the Jaguars and head coach Urban Meyer, who coached Tebow during his record-setting run at the University of Florida. A former Heisman Trophy winner, Tebow went 9-7 as the Broncos' starting quarterback before spending one season with the New York Jets. He then had two uneventful stops with the Jets and Patriots before spending nearly five years in the Mets' minor league system.
Along with playing tight end, Tebow may be asked to serve as a mentor for quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Like Tebow, Lawrence led his collegiate team to a national championship before becoming a first-round pick.
The most important thing for Trevor is to learn the offense, it's not to sell billboards around the state of Florida," Meyer said. "And we're going to be very cautious about that. The good thing is that's very important to him. He's not a guy, as you can see, he's not even at the draft. His focus is he wants to live here, he wants to move here, he wants to train here, he wants to win. Obviously, that's very appealing to our staff.
