Tim Tebow will not be playing for his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars next season, not if new General Manager David Caldwell has his way.
In his introductory news conference Thursday, Caldwell was adamant that the former Heisman Trophy winner at Florida and current failed Jets quarterback is not part of the team's rebuilding plan.
“I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he's released,” Caldwell said.
And the Jets have indicated they will release Tebow, who was the odd man out when New York shuffled struggling starter Mark Sanchez and third-stringer Greg McElroy in and out of the lineup.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan has been intrigued by Tebow possibly returning to his hometown. Jacksonville has had a revolving door at quarterback recently, with heralded second-year pro Blaine Gabbert getting injured and veteran Chad Henne having mixed results this season.
