Former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence may get to play with a tight end that won a Heisman as a quarterback himself.
According to Ian Rapoport the Jacksonville Jaguars are planning to sign 33 year old Tim Tebow to a one year contract to play tight end.
The move will reunite Tebow with head coach Urban Meyer, who coached Tebow during his record-setting run as the quarterback at the University of Florida. After coming out of college Tebow went 9-7 as the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback. He then spent a season with the New York Jets before he made a stop with the New England Patriots.
After his time in the NFL Tebow spent nearly five years in the New York Mets’ minor league system. He has also spent some time working with the SEC Network and ESPN before working out with the Jaguars at tight end. The Jaguars’ current depth at tight end includes Chris Manhertz, rookie Luke Farrell, and Tyler Davis.
One thing that this could do is give Lawrence , who’s already setting records even before playing a down in the league, someone that’s been through what he’s about to go through himself. Tebow has the experience to help Lawrence as he learns his path and adjusts to the fast paced NFL, both on and off of the field.
