Jacksonville really signed Tim Tebow

(Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images)

Tim Tebow is officially a Jacksonville Jaguar.

At age 33 and out of the game for over six years, Tebow signed his new NFL contract with the Jaguars this morning, and will report to team activities today to play real-life football again.

Now a tight end for his old college coach Urban Meyer in Meyer’s first NFL season, Tebow makes his first NFL appearance since preseason camp with the Eagles in 2015. Two years before that, he tried out in the Patriots’ preseason camp in 2012, following his final season of real game action in 2012 with the Jets.

He also dabbled in professional baseball between media appearances as a college football analyst.

There’s no way this works, right?

    Good for Tim. He will do fine. He will play TE now which is best for his NFL success.

    It’s worth a flyer. He’s still got to make the roster. Plus NFL contracts aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.

    Dude did get huge. Of course he won’t actually play. Plus, he could be an asset on the practice squad or act as the emergency 3rd or 4th QB which maybe opens another roster spot. Ultimately, this is clearly a move by his old coach to get him back into football and to add an older experienced veteran to an extremely young roster. He can also serve as team chaplain.

    The original kneeler that they the NFL told him to stop or he would be fined. Good luck to him.

      He knelt for the wrong reason, evidently

      He knelt for the right reason. His relationship with God.

      I’ve been a Tebow fan since he was at Florida. It will be interesting to see how Meyer utilizes him in special sets. I could see Tebow running an end around at the goal line from the TE position to pull up at the line and deliver his jump pass. I’m certain this is also a publicity stunt to try and draw back viewers. I haven’t watched the NFL in years and don’t plan to start now. Best of luck to Tebow regardless.

      He was never admonished by the league for that.

    Very good move for the Jags. He will put fans in the stands because this is his home town and lots of old Gator fans who remember him fondly. He has the frame for a tight end and has remained in great physical condition. Looking back he should have switched to TE years ago.

    Urban Meyer likes him and will get the best out of him. Good move for all and it might bring back a few fans who have tuned the NFL out.

    My question is did he earn it or is Urban just doing this as a favor? The guy has never played the position before and he is more of a full back than tight end. He is at best 6″2. Most tight ends are 6’5 6″6 and 250.

      NFL is a business. You don’t have someone on the team being paid as a favor. SMH

    Ever since he left Florida I e been a huge fan. He’s a good dude and the type of role model I’m comfortable encouraging my kids to look out to. Best of wishes Tim!
