Sources: Tim Tebow Wants To Return To The NFL As TE; He Already Trains With Jaguars

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow has recently been working with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a tight end, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Tebow approached the team and requested a test. Switching to tight end, according to some, could have extended his NFL career.

Sources said the team has not made a decision regarding Tebow.


The 33-year-old Tebow hasn’t played in the league since 2012 when he did with the Jets. He appeared in 12 games and was a two-time starter as QB.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner played three NFL seasons, two with Denver. His best season was in 2011, when he played in 14 games, going 7-4, in 11 games as a starter, to lead the Broncos to the playoffs. He was a double threat, rushing for 660 yards that season.

He also had a rapprochement with the Patriots in 2013 and the Eagles in 2015, but he never stuck with those teams.

After his time in American football, Tebow tried to succeed in professional baseball as an outfielder with the New York Mets organization. From 2016 to 2019, he played in the minor leagues and made it to Triple-A.

In 2020, he went to spring training but didn’t play for the season. He announced his retirement from baseball in February.
