The Jacksonville Jaguars shouldn’t have ever considered Tim Tebow.

“Tim Tebow is a winner”, “he won the Heisman as a sophomore”, “he helped Florida win two National Championships”, “he’s in the best shape of his life”.

By now, you might’ve heard all the reasons why the Jaguars should sign Tim Tebow, and this Jacksonville team is getting the spotlight for even considering it. This is even more surprising when you take into account that he hasn’t even agreed to a deal. Urban Meyer, appearing on The Chris Collinsworth Podcast, said the team would meet Sunday and would make a decision.

And all this noise… for a player that may not even make the team? Tebow was a great motivator, a competitor, and a winner in college but all those attributes didn’t help them much in the NFL, as he lacked a crucial one, talent.

As great as Tebow was at the collegiate level, his skill set didn’t carry over to the pros, and was out of the league after just three seasons. Nowadays, he’s making a comeback but he’s making the switch to a tight end after declining to do it years ago.

At best, the 2010 first-round selection will be a third-string tight end. Nobody is betting against him, and he should definitely give it a shot if that’s what he wants. However, the odds are not in his favor. Tebow never lacked the heart or the passion, he just couldn’t play. Will things be any different in Duval?
