Still, a suitor could be hard to find. Building a team around Tebow means running counter to the current trend in the National Football League of building teams around exceptional passers.
- One option is for Tebow to reunite with the coach who drafted him – Josh McDaniels, who is now the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. Rumors are swirling that he could end up backing up Tom Brady.
- He could also wind up in Green Bay, where the exit of backup Matt Flynn has left room for a solid No. 2.
- Another options is the Miami Dolphins, who are looking for star power – and there is no bigger draw for Florida football fans than their native son.
That brings us, inevitably, to the Jaguar in the room. Tim Tebow signing with his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars and reinvigorating the franchise has been a pipe dream for long-suffering Jacksonville fans ever since Tebow was a Florida Gator, an hour away at the University of Florida.
