NFL insider Chris Simms shot down the idea that Tebow would be a viable player used in those types of situations.
“Can’t believe this is still a topic. The only reason you use Tebow in a Taysom Hill package is if you desperately want to get Tebow on the field for some reason. In his prime, he was never as athletic as Taysom,” Simms tweeted Friday.
“There are a ton of people on every team more qualified than Tebow to run a Taysom Hill package. Only reason we are having this discussion is because Urban Meyer has a spot in his heart that favors Tebow more than any other coach has favored a player in recent history.”
Tebow is trying to make the Jaguars as a tight end, even though he only took one snap in his career as a receiver and hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2012.
Jaguars coach Urban Meyer didn’t reveal what he has up his sleeve for Tebow.
“I think it’s one step at a time and see what happens,” he said after camp Thursday afternoon. “Before you start having those conversations, you’ve got to feel where he’s at on the depth chart, 等等. 明显, it’s only been a couple of days. We have not had that conversation as an offensive staff yet.”
