Tim Tebow, the 2007 Heisman winner from Florida, is expecting to sign a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars while reuniting with his former college football coach Urban Meyer (Fox).

Tebow reportedly had a few workouts with the Jaguars to show that he can make the transition from quarterback to tight end (Fox). Tebow hasn’t played in a professional football game since 2012, with the New York Jets. Before stepping away from football, he briefly signed with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Tebow played a total of 35 games in the NFL. He has won one playoff game as the QB of the Denver Broncos. He had 2,422 passing yards and 17 passing touchdowns. He also had 989 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns during the duration of his career (Fox). Tebow even played in the New York Mets organization from 2016-2019, but injuries unfortunately cut his baseball career short.

Tebow stated late last year that he still wants to pursue his baseball career, but formally announced his retirement in February (Fox).
