Now that the Seattle Seahawks have emphatically denied interest in the New York Jets' maligned and disgruntled quarterback Tim Tebow, where might the NFL’s biggest enigma wind up?
There are only a handful of teams who really could use Tebow’s services. Backing up Russell Wilson would have been a good place to revitalize his career, but seeing the field other than gimmick plays and as a receiver might have been the only way the former Heisman Trophy winner would have competed.
At the end of the 2012 season, it was thought by every media pundit under the sun (including myself) that Tebow would be in a Jacksonville Jaguars uniform in 2013. But the Jaguars fired then coach Mike Mularkey and general manager Gene Smith and hired new general manager David Caldwell, who stated in his team introduction there was no way Tebow would be part of the team’s plans moving forward.
While his athleticism is undeniable and his enthusiasm is catchy, it does not hide deficiencies in his mechanics or his ability to pick up an offense.
