New Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell has been very outspoken on how the team would not be signing hometown hero Tim Tebow.
Jags fans, however, are still calling for Caldwell to bring Tebow back home. And, by calling, we really mean petitioning President Obama.
On April 30, a petition was submitted on the White House’s “We The People” website calling for Obama to call Caldwell to call Tebow.
The actual title of the petition may just be the best part: “Call NFL Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and tell him to stop ignoring the Jaguars fans and sign Tim Tebow!”
Here’s the full petition:
Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy.Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start.Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger,7 game winning drives in just 16 games!
As of writing this, the signature total was 134. The requirement to actually put the petition into action is 100,000. Only 99,866 more to go.
Time to shine, Jags fans!
