The retired running back tweeted he wanted to make it as a defensive end and took a swipe at Tebow.

Well since Tebow came back after being off a good bit, I am announcing today that I to will comeback. I will play defensive end for whatever team gives me a chance!!!” 他写了.

I am really serious about coming back as a defensive end. I can still run, I am strong and there’s no way Tim Tebow is a better athlete than I am. I just need a shot that’s it!! If I can’t cut it I’ll take it like a man. Just give me one chance that’s all!!” 他加了.


Jacobs played for the Giants for eight years between 2005 和 2011 再来一次 2013. He never took a defensive snap.

Tebow last appeared in an NFL regular-season game in 2012 but made appearances in camp for the 新英格兰爱国者费城老鹰队 before trying his hand at being a broadcaster and an outfielder in the 纽约大都会队’ organization.

He has faced a tremendous amount of criticism upon his return and his try at tight end. He only had one snap as a receiver in his career during the regular season.

The Jaguars have been willing to give him a shot and make it onto the roster. The starting job for the position is a bit wide open as the team brought in six tight ends in the offseason to compete for at least three spots.
