NFL Rumors: Urban Meyer Believes Tim Tebow Can Help Jaguars

Could Tim Tebow make a return to the NFL in 2021? The idea may not be so far-fetched.

Tebow held a workout as a tight end with the Jaguars earlier this offseason and the team's interest in the former Heisman Trophy winner has continued after the NFL draft.

"[Tebow] has definitely come in and worked out,” Tony Khan, Jacksonville's chief football strategy officer told Bleacher Report. "Tim has come in and worked out as a tight end. That’s not a position that we’ve seen him play, but it’s a position that he’s been practicing at with us."

Khan added that coach Urban Meyer remains intrigued by the potential addition of Tebow, noting, "Urban really believes he can help us, and I think it makes a lot of sense."

Tebow's NFL career ended after just 35 career games, but perhaps reuniting with Meyer can reignite his career. Tebow became one of the most decorated quarterbacks in college football history playing for Meyer at Florida, tallying 145 touchdowns in four seasons. Tebow won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, and he led the Gators to the national championship in 2008.
