Tim Tebow reacts to being released

Tim Tebow responded to the decision on social media.

  • “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.”

Is Tim Tebow still in the NFL?

Tim Tebow has attempted to make a comeback in the NFL. He signed a one-year deal with the franchise under new coach Urban Meyer.

As I wrote for the Deseret News, Tebow did make a training camp debut, catching some passes and showing off skills as a tight end. He looked seriously jacked.

When did Tim Tebow join the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Reports surfaced in May that Tebow would sign a one-year contract with the Jacks Jaguars. Controversy followed as critics questioned the idea of Tebow making his return.

ESPN’s Anthony McFarland called Tebow a “polarizing former athlete that we can’t stop talking about.” 

  • “Here’s the quandary with Tim Tebow,” McFarland said. “Tim Tebow was a really good college athlete who some people around the country think has been treated with a lot of privilege — decent athlete who’s been given a lot of things and a lot of chances. Other people ... love his story about faith and his relationship with God and perseverance. ... He’s got his allegiance.”
