Jacksonville Jaguars owner intrigued by Tim Tebow


The Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell has insisted that they aren’t considering adding Tim Tebow. Despite Jacksonville Jaguars fans clamoring for Tebowmania, which has even led them to petition President Barack Obama.

“We’re looking for the best players obviously for us that help us win,” Khan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.  “How many players are in the NFL?  I would assume it’s 90 [times] 32 at this point, right?  So, ballpark about 3,000 players, correct?  Why one player? . . . .  Why do you ask about one player?  What about the other 2,999?

“Because I’m fascinated with that.”

Tim Tebow grew up in the Jacksonville area, then led the home state and nearby University of Florida Gators to 2 BCS National Championships while winning himself a Heisman Trophy and legend status.

While signing Tebow wouldn’t be a commitment to winning immediately it could have a positive impact on the organization. He would likely increase revenue for the organization, which could make them players in free agency possibly. He could do all of this while leading the team to top 10 NFL draft picks potentially, which could set them up to win in the future.

Worst case scenario he repeats what he did in Denver and leads the team to the playoffs. Then it looks genius.

“I don’t think it’s right for me to go and say – forget about a specific player – which of the 3000 players in the league they ought to have and not have,” Khan added.  “So it’s for them [to decide].”
