The Tim Tebow tight end experiment for the Jacksonville Jaguars doesn’t seem to be going well.

The 34-year-old former quarterback was fourth-string (with two other players) on the initial Jacksonville depth chart, and proceeded to not look good in the team’s preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns on Saturday night. Tebow played 16 snaps (with no special teams contributions, something that’s important to note for players competing for roster spots), and he had a block that went viral.

Well, after All-22 film became available on Sunday, CBS Sports’ Chris Towers identified an even worse block (attempt) from Tebow. And it came on the very next play.


This whole situation seems so unnecessary, and especially for a rebuilding team that has a rookie quarterback that they hope will be the franchise guy in Trevor Lawrence, to go with a new coaching staff.

Then again, the person leading that coaching staff is Urban Meyer, Tebow’s college head coach at Florida. Perhaps Meyer is just that stubborn — or delusional — when it comes to Tebow, so we shouldn’t rule anything out. But this does not appear to be a player deserving of an NFL roster spot in 2021.
