The Tim Tebow hype has subsided, for now.
The 33-calendar year-previous, who’s on an NFL comeback journey with the Jaguars, has but to provide an a-ha instant that proves he’s deserving of a roster location at restricted end — a position he’s never performed.
A described “low-key” Tebow has been silently current at 8 offseason methods in Jacksonville, where by he’s focused on learning the Xs and Os of the posture, according to the Florida Periods-Union.
In his attempt to show his worthy of on a young roster less than his former school coach Urban Meyer, Tebow’s receiving restricted reps in a restricted stop locker place that involves Chris Manhertz, James O’Shaughnessy, rookie Luke Farrell, Ben Ellefson, and Tyler Davis.
And, he’s sharing the highlight equally with his counterparts — a thing many believed wouldn’t materialize when Tebow arrived in Jacksonville — pursuing the media firestorm that ensued when he introduced his hopeful NFL return.
In the Jags’ very first open practice to the media on May perhaps 27, Tebow amazed with two shorter-yardage touchdowns, among other flashes in the days that followed.
On Tuesday, Tebow confirmed consistency with catching, in spite of currently being stagnant in 11-on-11 drills, where neither of Jacksonville’s quarterbacks, Trevor Lawrence, Gardner Minshew or C.J. Beathard, delivered a go his way.
A standard talkative Tebow has also been quiet with media. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound quarterback-turned limited conclude, has still to tackle his NFL comeback and reunion with Meyer.
“You wish you could see and do [more],” Meyer claimed, in accordance to the Periods-Union. “In spring football, you have complete pads and scrimmages, and you can actually assess, but it’s type of hard ideal now.”
Yet another regularity of Tebow’s, Meyer mentioned, has been his go-getter angle.
“Oh, Tim has performed a decent task. We all know this is a new place for him. He’s a wonderful teammate. In the locker room, I can see most people finding together, we have fantastic chemistry on our team,” Meyer said. “But he’s picked it up decently.”
In spite of Meyer’s optimism, he’s dealing with his collegiate winner like any other Jags player.
“What’s the proportion of building the crew? We do not know. This is uncharted waters,” Meyer claimed about Tebow on “The Prosperous Eisen Show” final week. “This is heading to be extremely challenging, but he’s been carrying out fantastic. He’s been performing good in follow. He’s mastering the offense.”
The Jaguars’ necessary minicamp begins Tuesday, with teaching camp beginning on July 27.
Possibly then, Tebow will arise as a shiny hybrid resource for the Jags offense.
