To those Jacksonville Jaguars fans who were hoping for Tim Tebow to return home to Florida, we are are sorry about your luck.
New Jaguars general manager David Caldwell met with the media today and, as you would expect, one of the questions he was asked was about the possibility of the New York Jets personal punt protector coming to Jacksonville. How did Caldwell answer the question? He immediately shot down any possibility of the scenario happening.
“He is a member of the NY Jets,” Caldwell said during the press conference. “I can’t imagine a scenario where he’d be a Jacksonville Jaguars even if he’s released.”
Well, that solves that and it should immediately make the Jaguars fans comfortable knowing they have a man that understands Tebow is not a suitable NFL quarterback and he has no value to a franchise.
Caldwell did seem a bit interested in Jaguars current quarterback Blaine Gabbert pointing out that he was the “second youngest quarterback in the league,” but he did leave the door open for change saying that there will be an open competition at the position.
It is clear that Caldwell wants to immediately have his presence felt in Jacksonville. He wasted no time firing head coach Mike Mularkey and then shot down rumors of Tebow to Jacksonville on his day on the job.
One word to describe Caldwell’s first 24 hours on the job: success.
