Tim Tebow’s next stop will not be Jacksonsville, if he even has a next stop.
New Jacksonsville general manager David Caldwell put a decisive end to any thought that the lightning-rod quarterback could end up in his hometown, putting a serious question mark on Tebow’s NFL future.
Caldwell left little doubt at his introductory press conference on Thursday that the Jets’ backup/third-string quarterback isn’t in his plans. Last month, ESPN cited league sources that it was a “virtual certainty” that Tebow would land with his hometown team through a trade or release by the Jets, but Caldwell made it clear that that's simply not happening.
“I can’t imagine a scenario where he would be a Jacksonville Jaguar," said Caldwell, who'll probably get a slap on the wrist from the league office for technically tampering by discussing a player on another team.
