Tim Tebow’s future with the NFL is uncertain since his release from the New York Jets. Many think his lack of mechanics and poor throwing motion and slow release has him destined to play football outside the NFL. Of course if he were willing to change his position he might still be able to find a home.
His hometown team’s fans though want him to get a shot. The Jaguars general manager David Caldwell has resisted the pressure so far, and the fans are going over his head sort of. They’re petitioning the White House to force the Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow.
“Call NFL Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and tell him to stop ignoring the Jaguars fans and sign Tim Tebow!”
“If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow,” the petition continues, “home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy.”
That seems to be fairly reasonable logic. NFL teams are businesses and making money should be the goal. He grew up in Florida, won a Heisman Trophy at a state school and a couple BCS National Championships.
But what this says is that the Jaguars are committed to getting to better and are trying to win.
To bring in Tebow purely would be to make money and not be competitive. But it’d be a great way to make money and keep racking up top 10 draft picks at the same time. That could be the winning recipe.
