Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow recently worked out for the Jaguars as a possible tight end, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. 

According to ESPN, Tebow requested the workout with Jacksonville's tight end coach Tyler Brown, who was hired in February. No decision has been made.

The former Heisman Trophy–winning quarterback at Florida spent three seasons in the NFL—two seasons with the Broncos and one season with the Jets—throwing for a total of 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. 

If Tebow signs with the Jaguars, he would reunite with his former college coach Urban Meyer, who was hired as the Jaguars' head coach this offseason. 

Tebow played with the Patriots in the 2013 preseason and the Eagles in the 2015 preseason, but he was released before the regular season each time.

In January, Tebow stated that he would not be joining his former college coach in Jacksonville. However, during that time, Tebow was focused on spring training and his professional baseball career with the Mets organization.

"If [Meyer] decides to take a job, he’ll have my support," Tebow said in January. "He’s like a father figure to me. I believe he’ll do a great job.

“Obviously, me and coach are so close and so we’ve talked about a lot of different things over the years. But for me, I’m super excited about spring training, and so that’s where my focus kind of swirls right now.”

In February, Tebow retired from the Mets' minor league system after four years in baseball. In three professional seasons, Tebow posted a .223/.299/.338 slash line with 107 runs scored, 48 doubles, three triples, 18 home runs and 107 RBIs in 287 games.
