“Tim Tebow may be too popular to play football anymore”
After a miserable 2012 season (the Jets played their part in that), Tebow was expected to at least have Jacksonville as a landing spot. Tebow, a former Florida Gators star and a native of the Jacksonville area, has a huge base of support there.
But any team that would take him on would have to deal with the drama of how much playing time Tebow should receive.
John Elway wanted no part of that distraction in Denver and executed a great escape. The Jets enjoyed the Tebow experiment so much that they didn’t start him even as Mark Sanchez sometimes played as if he were sabotaging the season. (After the way they treated him, the Jets probably owe it to Tebow to release him soon, to give him better odds to latch on with another team.)
And now, the new general manager of the Jaguars, Dave Caldwell, says he has no use for him.
