He spent three months with the team and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman thinks it was enough time for his presence to be felt.
“Albeit a short tenure, don’t discount the impact Tim Tebow had in helping Urban Meyer [with] his locker room culture,” Aikman tweeted. “And knowing the respect Urban has for Tebow, his release sends message to [the] team that this is business.”
He might’ve thought what he was saying was commendable, but not everybody agreed with his accessment.
Tebow took to Twitter and thanked the Jags for giving him a chance after being cut.
“Thankful for the highs and even the lows, the opportunities, and the setbacks. I’ve never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure and I’m grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream,” he tweeted.
“Thank you to the Jaguars organization and everyone who has supported me in this journey. And we know that…God works all things together for good. Romans 8:28.”
The NFL quarterback-turned-tight end didn’t sit around and just be sad about being cut, he partnered with Clean Juice to become the company’s national brand ambassador.
“I’m very excited to be partnering with Clean Juice and to offer something that is truly clean and healthy,” Tebow said in a press release. “The biggest thing about Clean Juice over everything else is that you can trust the product and brand. There aren’t a lot of products that are transparent about what is in your food.”
Tebow will be featured in the company’s first national TV advertisement.
“Tim Tebow’s natural authenticity, inspiring reputation, commitment to healthy living, and unwavering faith is the perfect embodiment of the personal and professional values we hold dear at Clean Juice,” CEO Landon Eckles said in the press release. “We are truly blessed that Tebow has chosen to stand side-by-side with Clean Juice in becoming the face of the brand’s continued mission and vision of being healthy in body and strong in spirit. The entire Clean Juice family is blessed to work with Tebow.”
