With the NFL trade deadline approaching, plenty of phone calls are being made. But possibly none bigger than the Jaguars possible acquisition of Tim Tebow from the New York Jets. Steve Wrigley of  Action News in Jacksonville is reporting that the Jaguars are making a strong push in landing the three-year QB from the struggling Jets. Could Tim Tebow be shipped to Jacksonville? (Credit: AP Photo) Tebow passed on the Jaguars early in the offseason when he had a choice between returning to play for his hometown team or take his talents to the Big Apple. He passed on playing for the Jaguars due to Mark Sanchez’s inconsistencies, hoping that would put him on the field faster,  but he’s found himself riding the pine, even though his career numbers are better than Mark’s production this year. Rex Ryan is continuously saying that Sanchez will remain the starter, and Tebow is always saying he’s a competitor and he wants to be on the field. So far, that hasn’t been the case in New York. If the trade goes down before Thursday’s deadline, maybe it will take some of the pressure off of Mark Sanchez and he might start playing like the QB the Jets thought they were getting when they drafted him with the fifth overall pick in 2009. If the Jaguars land Tebow, it shows that GM Gene Smith and HC Mike Mularkey aren’t happy with the minimal progress that Blaine Gabbert has made in his second year as the Jaguars signal caller. Stay with Down and Distance for more on this story as it develops.   The post Report: Jaguars making late push for Tim Tebow appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
