Tebow to the Jaguars?


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

May 10, 2013

The big question around football circles these days is where Tim Tebow will play next year, if anywhere. There’s been little interest from either NFL or Canadian Football League teams, but one fan base has been trying extra hard to get Tebow in their jersey. A petition was recently filed on the White House’s website asking President Obama to call Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and demand the team sign Tebow. The White House has since taken the petition down for violating its terms of use. Additionally, powerful Florida attorney and University of Florida booster John Morgan offered to buy a suite at EverBank Field if the Jags bring in Tebow.

Unfortunately, the odds of Tebow playing for his hometown team appear slim. Jaguars owner Shad Khan said that he’s intrigued by all the interest in Tebow going to his team, but that he’s not meddling in personnel decisions. Regardless, there’s no doubt that Tebow would help the team’s bottom line. Jacksonville last season ranked 20th in the NFL in per-game attendance, and at $770 million, the Jags are the least valuable NFL franchise.
