Tim Tebow’s time with the Jaguars and maybe the NFL has come to an end. Tebow, who was trying to make a comeback to the league as a tight end, was waived by Jacksonville on Tuesday.
In his preseason debut with Jacksonville on Saturday night against Cleveland, Tebow did not catch a pass and struggled with blocking.
The team signed the 34-year-old in May. Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy with current Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer at Florida, played three seasons in the NFL as a quarterback, including leading the Broncos to a victory in the playoffs back in 2011.
After playing for the Jets in 2012, the Florida native tried to catch on with the Eagles and Patriots, but both times he was cut by both teams before the start of the season. Tebow tried his hand at baseball and spent three seasons(2016-19) in the Mets’ minor league system before retiring in 2020.
Hate or love him; you have to give Tebow credit for trying. It was an uphill battle for him to make the team, and at this point, it will be an uphill battle for him to get another shot in the NFL.
