Tim Tebow is meant to signal with Jaguars; Within the NFL world, followers are dropping their collective minds

Tebowmania takes Jacksonville.

College football icon, NFL washout and former New York Mets outfielder Tim Tebow is reportedly about to sign a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

Tebow’s upcoming return to Florida reunites him with Jag’s head coach Urban Meyer, next to whom Tebow won two national championships with the Florida Gators.

The move is the last in an off-season that Jaguar’s organization redesigned for Meyer. Tebow is expected to sign and make the move to the close end, unlike the quarterback he played in college and during a brief stint with the Broncos when he was drafted in 2010.

In a spell with the Jets in 2012, Tebow was targeted only once when a pass from Mark Sanchez ricocheted off Tebow’s helmet.

Tebow hasn’t put on shoulder pads since 2015 when he was cut by the Eagles last season. Tebow’s youngest sports company got into the Mets minor league system and tried to break into the majors as an outfielder. (It did not work.)

While there won’t (likely) be a quarterback controversy in Jacksonville where Trevor Lawrence receives the keys to the franchise, the move in and of itself was quite controversial and the NFL world responded appropriately:

All jokes aside. Why is Tebow back in the NFL? There is no real explanation for this. Dude hasn’t seen the field in the regular season in 8 years.

When Tebow is back and Bennifer is back too, can I be 21 again?

Tim Tebow last appeared in a regular NFL season game in 2012. That season, Adrian Peterson won the league MVP, RG3 won the offensive rookie of the year, Luke Kuechly won the defensive rookie of the year and Joe Flacco won the Super Bowl MVP. #Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence was 12 years old.
