The Tim Tebow NFL rumors of heading back to his hometown of Jacksonville, Fla. to play football in 2013 were so strong just a few weeks ago it seemed like it was just a matter of time before it was a reality.
It seems that reality show isn't happening.
According to Yahoo! Sports, at his introductory press conference, newly-hired general manager David Caldwell made it clear that the Jags didn't see the hometown native fitting in next season.
“I can’t imagine a scenario where he’d be a Jacksonville Jaguar,” Caldwell said when asked about Tebow on Thursday.
That is something many Jaguar fans didn't expect to hear. Several sources reported as recently as New Year's Day that Tebow was "a virtual certainty" to become a Jacksonville Jaguar in 2013.
It seems odd that this type of statement would be made before the NFL off-season actually started, especially since Tebow is like a living legend in Jacksonville. It seemed like Tebow and the Jaguars would be a perfect fit.
The former Heisman Trophy winner would do one thing right away if Jacksonville signed him, and that's raise the interest in ticket sales.
Who knows what the future will bring. The way GMs and teams change their minds Tebow may end up in Florida next season, but as of now it seems like it's not happening.
