Reiterating: Jaguars don't covet Tebow
By Paul Kuharsky
Nothing has changed since Dave Caldwell was introduced as the Jacksonville Jaguars' general manager on Jan. 10.
He was pro-active and quite aggressive when the inevitable Tim Tebow question arrived.
"I can't imagine a scenario where he'd be a Jaguar, even if he's released,” Caldwell said.
Nothing has happened since then that would change the organization's stance.
They have a big question mark at quarterback with Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne and two undrafted rookies, Matt Scott and Jordan Rodgers. And there is nothing Tebow could do to settle the question instead of expanding it.
I understand it is beyond the comprehension of some nationally, who write out a simple equation -- bad team plus local hero equals automatic fit -- that it's not going to happen.
But it's not going to happen.
Owner Shad Khan's spokesperson, Jim Woodcock, reiterated it in an email message to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
“The Jacksonville Jaguars’ plans do not include Tim Tebow," he wrote.
