Doesn't surprise me. We won't have a trade partner for Tebow. It's either going to be keep him or cut him with it most likely being the latter.

Maybe we hire Popp, and he uses his connections to get Tebow a CFL gig.

The Jets wind up cutting Tebow, Jags realize no fans are coming to the games, and they sign Tebow with an incentive laced contract.
Win win for them. Jets dont have the Tebow circus around anymore, but still have Sanchez.

There is no way the GM takes the job with the owner demanding Tebow. That would be a dealbreaker.

I actually watched the press conference. When Caldwell was asked about Tebow he said something to the effect of, "Tim is currently a New York Jet, we have no intention of pursuing him" **stunned media pause**. Someone asked him to repeat himself, so he said, "We have no intention of pursuing him" **another stunned media pause**. Then a lady yelled out from the back, "At this time?!" to which he replied, "Correct, at this time".

The whole affair came off as nervous, similar to when he was asked about Greg Roman of the Niners...he was fumbling for the correct pc response to abstain from tampering violations.

Tebow to Jacksonville is strictly a Kahn-seat-filler-motif and I believe it will still happen.
He would bring too much revenue to Jacksonville for them to decline him a backup roster spot, especially at a hometown discount.

The Problem the Jags have is Tebow is a local hero. They have stunk for years. This years QBs in the draft are not 'can't miss studs.'
And the Jags have a fan problem. As in people don't show up, games blacked out, no media gives a crap about them. Like it or now, owners need attention. They need to make money. So either they are planning to move and this is the way to go or this GM gets fired if he makes a few bad decisions. Or just average decisions that don't result in the Jags winning.

A jags team that finished 5-11 but nobody shows up isn't a good thing for the new GM. Especially if its the same bad QB situation they've had since Brunell left years ago. And he wasn't ever a guy anybody ever went to games to go see either.

Tebow and the Jags really are a fit made in heaven. Even if he stinks and the Jags stink, fans would show up just because it's Tebow. Media would show up because it's Tebow. The owner is happy. GM gets a few more years to find a real QB and rebuild. If they don't get a stud QB of the future in the draft, who is actually going to show up to these games? A losing team and nobody showing up isn't something any GM would ever want to fall into. Especially with a guy like Tebow out there. As bad as he is as a QB, he will bring the fans and circus. At least for a year or two until everybody realizes he just cant' play. But there are still plenty Skip Bayless's out there and plenty of fans who love the guy.

In the end it is a business. And the Jags have been a non factor, even when they had a few successful seasons.

If Tanny were still here I could envision a 1st round draft pick swap.
Jets get 2nd overall pick
Jags get Tebow, 9th overall pick...and 2 others...smh

...aaaand we'd probably draft Jarvis Jones who busts out like Aaron Maybin, except we spent 4 picks to get him and set our franchise back another 30 years.

tampering aside, it's like Tebow comes with all this baggage that franchises are hesitant to take on...you know, except the Jets.

Tebow will be a Jaguar this year. Whether or not we get anything for him or the Jags play the game and make us cut him before they sign him, he will be in Jacksonville this coming season.

It looks like Tebow is done. I'm despondent. The poor playoff game against the Patriots coupled with the insane press coverage has cost him dearly. The NFL is losing an exciting player. Bad day for Tebow fans. Sucks.
