Tim Tebow is getting his second NFL chance.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are planning on signing Tebow to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network, as he plans a comeback as a tight end. Though the ex-quarterback had brief stints with the Patriots and Eagles, Tebow hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012 with the Jets.
Tebow, 33, recently had a tryout with the Jaguars after reaching out to them regarding his interest in converting to tight end.
After NFL teams no longer showed interest in Tebow as a quarterback, he pursued a baseball career and played several minor league seasons in the Mets organization. He retired from baseball in February.
Tebow is reunited with Urban Meyer, his former Florida Gators coach, who is making his first foray into the NFL with the Jaguars.
