People Around the NFL Think Tim Tebow Could See Snaps at QB

SJ - May 27, 2021

Tim Tebow has returned to the NFL after almost a decade away from the game.  He was officially signed as a tight end, but according to NFL insider Dianna Russini, people around the league expect him to take snaps at quarterback.

Russini went on "First Take" on Thursday morning to reveal what she's hearing.

"They think that Urban Meyer purposely brought Tebow in, one to set the culture, the competitiveness, we know he’s a new NFL head coach here trying to set the tone for the culture.  But the bigger story, I think, that is the most interesting part of this, is that there are those in the league that Urban Meyer is bringing Tebow in to play quarterback, that Taysom Hill role, using him in that Wildcat that we’ve seen Urban Meyer use in the past.  Take a look at all those different offenses, it actually makes a lot of sense.  So he may be on the roster as a tight end, but there may be more to this Tebow experiment than him just playing that position."

Love it.  I love all of the attention on Tim Tebow.  I hate Urban Meyer and I would love nothing more than for him to crash and burn in the NFL, but bringing in Tebow was brilliant.

Sure all that stuff Dianna said could be true, but here's the real reason Tebow is in Jacksonville.  To keep the spotlight off the first overall pick.
