Last month, there were reports, obviously leaked from Tebow sources, that Tebow was likely to be a Jaguar in 2013. The team has an uncertain quarterback situation, was the only other team interested in a trade for Tebow last year, and is his hometown. The team also had no general manager at the time, so the rumors obviously weren’t coming from anyone who might be making the decision for the team.
Well, the new general manager, David Caldwell, came out today to put Tebow to Jacksonville to rest. The team’s official Twitter account had the following:
Caldwell: I can’t imagine a scenario where Tim Tebow would be Jacksonville Jaguar.

That leaves the Jets or bust, unless there is some other team out there wanting to bring in a quarterback who cannot throw, wants to play quarterback, does not want to switch positions, and will grouse about being used as a gimmick. If people mention the Canadian Football League, laugh at them. He’s not going to go to a league that requires more passing on a wide open field.
