Terez Owens is busy stirring up Tim Tebow rumors.
The debate over Tim Tebow has been raging since his freshman year at Florida, when fans wanted to see him play over starter Chris Leak. Since then, the future of The Chosen One has been an endless source of “news” throughout the media.
Thursday was no different. After being cut by the New England Patriots following the preseason, Tebow has watched the first month of the season at home like the rest of us. However, scuttlebutt today gave Jacksonville fans reason to believe their team would be watchable, as Tebow might be signed by his hometown Jaguars.
The NFL’s worst team may just be throwing a Hail Mary. According to our Jaguars leaker, the team is going to give Tim Tebow a shot to re capture his dream of playing Quarterback once again. Our source tells us the Jaguars realize Tebow can only help merchandise and ticket sales, and will bring a major surge of interest to the Jaguars. This is not a football move as much as it’s a financial move says our insider. The Jaguars have nothing to lose. Tebowmania in Jacksonville sounds like a great fit.
Not surprisingly, Terez Owens’ “Jaguars leaker” is most likely full of it.
Ryan O’Halloran, the Jaguars beat writer for the Florida Times-Union, shot down the rumors with a succinct tweet – because that’s as much time as Tebow coverage necessitates these days.
