New Jags owner is a Tebow fan
By Bill Williamson
New Jacksonville owner Shahid Khan caused a stir when he said he would have drafted Tim Tebow in 2010.
Khan later clarified that he wouldn’t have taken Tebow -- who is from Jacksonville -- with the No. 10 spot, but in a trade down. Denver took Tebow with the No. 25 pick.
Khan said it would have been a natural fit for Tebow to play in his hometown. One has to wonder if he will ever try to bring Tebow to Jacksonville. It is now in his power.
The Broncos said Tebow is their starter going into training camp. But if Khan really wanted Tebow, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Broncos were willing to listen. It would be difficult for the Jaguars to make any deal for a quarterback now since they took Blaine Gabbert in the first round last year. Gabbert was not good as a rookie, but the Jaguars have a lot tied into him.
Still, because of Khan’s words, we all know how much he’d like to see Tebow in a Jaguars’ uniform.
