The Jacksonville Jaguars reportedly are making a push to acquire quarterback Tim Tebow from the New York Jets ahead of Thursday’s NFL trade deadline. Action News in Jacksonville, which is the website for TV stations WTEV and WAWS, says the Jags are “making a play to trade for Tebow.” This report contradicts what most of the more informed and reputable reporters have been saying. ESPN New York reported last week that the Jets were not going to trade Tebow before the deadline. The New York Daily News followed with a similar report a few days later. FOX’s Jay Glazer also reported on Sunday that while Jaguars owner Shad Khan still maintains interest in Tebow, the team’s coach and GM are not interested in the quarterback. The Jags were the other team in the running for Tebow when the Broncos traded the quarterback to New York during the summer. It looked like the Jags were going to get him, but Tebow chose to go to New York because he believed he’d have a better chance of playing there, and because he wanted to go somewhere he was wanted. He hasn’t had much of an impact with the Jets through eight games, but that doesn’t mean the team is eager to get rid of him. They acquired him because he’s a major media and box office draw. That hasn’t changed. After the report emerged, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that the two teams haven’t had any trade discussions. We tend to believe him more than Action News Jacksonville. Photo: Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE
