Ever since it became apparent that the New York Jets had no intention of utilizing Tim Tebow as a QB, rumors have been swirling about where the unorthodox star could possibly land.
Jacksonville has been one team many have talked about, however with the hiring of new GM David Caldwell, it would appear that the Jaguars have no intention of picking up the hometown hero.
TMZ caught up with Jacksonville tight end Marcedes Lewis to ask him if he would want Tebow on the team. Lewis replied with:
“I’m going into my eighth year, I’ve had about four or five different quarterbacks,” Lewis said. “Obviously, in the state we were in last year, we need a guy that’s going to put us over the hump right now. Not a project.”
“Not taking anything away from Tebow,” Lewis added. “But we need a pure quarterback.”
With each day that passes, it is feeling more and more like Tebow could be out of the NFL alltogether this time next year.
