All eyes continue to be glued on the Jacksonville’s 33-year-old tight end in Tim Tebow, but he still has a long way to go if he wants to make the roster.
On Friday, Tebow came out to the field and Jacksonville fans showered him with cheers as the 33-year-old continues his quest to make the Jaguars’ 53-man roster. Tebow is hoping to make an NFL regular season roster for the first time since 2012, when he was active for 12 games as a member of the New York Jets.
On Saturday, video surfaced showing just how incredibly jacked Tebow is at his age as he ran a route for a catch.
However, a ton of people pointed out how incredibly slow he is for the position.
Tebow’s competition at tight end includes rookie Luke Farrell, Chris Manhertz, James O’Shaughnessy, Tyler Davis and Ben Ellefson.
As for Tebow’s chances of making the team, Urban said in June that it will come down to a numbers game whether he makes it or not.
“That’s the reality to the NFL, that you have 90 players,” Meyer said. “So to me, he’s one of 90. What’s the difference between him and the other 40 guys trying to make the team? To me, it’s all the same.”
“The reality is that a good percentage of your roster is going to get cut or transitioned out, which to me, that’s completely new. In college, you’d have your 85, 95 guys and you fit them in and you put the puzzle together. It’s much different here.”
