As Tim Tebow’s trade to the Jets hangs in the balance over a disputed $5 million payment, a team that could get much more than $5 million in ticket revenue from Tebow’s presence is considering trading for him.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are now in the mix and attempting to work out a trade with the Broncos for Tebow, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Tebow was a national championship-winning and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the Florida Gators and is an enormously popular figure there, and he more than any other player could alleviate the Jaguars’ perpetual problems with filling their stadium. Jaguars owner Shad Khan has made no secret that he’d love to see Tebow in a Jaguars uniform, although the football people in Jacksonville don’t appear to be particularly interested in his services.
