Tebow not returning to AFC West -- for now

4/30/2013

Monday, we wondered if San Diego Chargers coach Mike McCoy would be interested in a reunion with Tim Tebow.

It turns out our instincts were right. Neither the Chargers nor any other team in the NFL put a waiver claim on Tebow, who was cut by the New York Jets. I am not surprised AFC West teams passed on the former Denver quarterback.

Of course, that could change. Tebow is now a free agent. Could the Chargers and McCoy, who was Tebow’s offensive coordinator in Denver, or another AFC West team make a play for Tebow? I wouldn’t count on it.

In other AFC West notes:

Meet No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher -- Everyman.

The Broncos signed Brigham Young defensive tackle Romney Fuga. Denver previously added 15 undrafted free agents.

The Raiders signed kicker Eddy Carmona. He was with the team last summer. Teams have a backup kicker in the preseason.

Jacksonville receiver Justin Blackmon has been suspended for the first four games of the season. The Jaguars play against the Chiefs and Raiders in the first two weeks of the season.
