Him still being a thing is what’s “a little much”. He’s the perfect metaphor for our culture. 


I mean I get it, Tebow sucks ass, but wishing a career-ending injury on a guy is a pretty spicy bit of vitriol, especially considering his NFL career is virtually a nothingburger seasoned with unwarranted media interest.

Don't get mad at me for asking, but how so? I'm genuinely curious to hear your answer.

I don't particularly want or need to see Tim Tebow involved with professional football ever again. Without clicking any links, this feels more akin to Brock Lesnar signing with the Minnesota Vikings than it does a legitimate football move. Also, hasn't Tebow been out of the NFL for like a decade?

In fairness, sadly, college basketball players somehow latch on as tight ends with no experience (see: Antonio Gates), so Tebow may still find a way to back into another job.

Tim Tebow seems like a nice enough guy. Not particularly talented above the college level but I really don’t get the vitriol nor people acting like he’s some Evangelical Jackie Robinson.

It’s simple, really. It’s as if merit and qualification no longer matters. If you’re branded a certain way and are loud enough, that’s all it really takes anymore. We, as a society, worship losers. 
 

I really don’t want to get into the full scope of it, like, right here.

 Sure, this is just more of a trial than anything and nothing is given, but I would have rather seen the opportunity go to someone else.

I am certain that there are plenty of undrafted players that they could have signed that would have make more of an impact.

It's a feel good story, but have Tebow at TE probably isn't going to end well for both sides.

 

Tebow hasn't been a TE ever in his career and the Jaguars are so downtrodden that any attention is good for them.

 

I just don't see how this works out.

Remember, we’re talking about Urban Meyer and the Jaguars. He’d probably try out Aaron Hernandez if he could get in touch with a necromancer.

The signing makes sense, though.

 

I appreciate what Tebow did on the football field for Florida but I don't particularly care about him beyond that, so ignore my signature on this one.

 

He had no business being on a minor league baseball roster but given that there's 300-or-so spots in an MLB organization, it's not like he was taking the spot of somebody who was ever going to sniff the NY Mets roster.

 

TE is the position everybody was saying he should have been playing in the NFL to begin with, he seems to keep himself in playing condition, nobody's ever questioned his work ethic, and he's a low-risk possibility to slide into a Taysom Hill role -- which is what he should have done from the get-go.  If it works, Jacksonville gets a gadget player teams have to consider when they're game planning, draws interest from UF fans throughout the state, and has somebody to bunk with anybody on the team that may be a psychopath in training camp.  If it doesn't, Jacksonville loses nothing.  I like the move.  Hope it works for him and we get to see at least a glimmer of what he could have been in the NFL were he not so stubborn about playing QB.

Wow, that's a little much.

It’s about par for the course here, especially when you have people on here wishing for worse because they choose to have “III” on the NOB’s

Until you get the Uber religious crowd going “why aren’t they playing Tebow, it must be the league repressing Christian values” that has happened at every team he’s played for until he’s cut. The only positive is it will take pressure off of Lawrence, but even that will only last until he struggles and the same crowd plus gators fans clamoring for Tebow to replace him at QB

I think having someone like Lawrence, who the entire fanbase has been excited for for a while, minimizes that risk. But yeah, I'm a Broncos fan so I know what you're talking about.

 

I know there's still people out there who pretend he wasn't a terrible NFL QB but by now I'd like to think there's not many who think he should be an NFL QB.

Fair enough.
