The agreement between the two sides was incomplete and not imminent, said Mike Jones of USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because talks are continuing.
The signing serves as a meeting between Tebow and Jaguars coach Urban Meyer. Under which the former star signer won the Heisman Trophy in Florida in 2007. And led the Gators to the 2008 national championship. In 2006, he won the title with the Gators as a substitute.
Tebow, 33, hasn’t taken an NFL regular-season game since 2012 when he played sparingly for the New York Jets. After seasons with the New England Patriots in 2013 and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015, he focused on baseball. But after spending several years in New York Met minor league system. He retired from the sport in February.
While the Jaguars are trying to build on former Clemson quarterback. And overall pick No.1, Trevor Lawrence, the tight end remains a place where the organization devotes scarce resources. Jacksonville selected Ohio State’s, Luke Farrell. Another former pupil of the 29-year-old Meyer, in the fifth round of this year’s draft. James O’Shaughnessy returns because of the best passer after recording 28 receptions for 262 receiving yards last season.
Still, it could be a tough battle for Tewow to get through training camp and on an active roster.
“Obviously, once you start talking a few positions. He hasn’t played or played for a while, it’s quite hard,” Meyer said. “So we’ll check everything out.”
