Earlier this month, new Jaguars general manager David Caldwell made it clear that he isn't interested in acquiring hometown legend Tim Tebow. That sentiment is resonating throughout the organization. On Saturday, TMZ caught up with Jags tight end Marcedes Lewis, who's looking to avoid Tebowmania at all costs. When asked if he wants Tebow on the team, Lewis answered honestly: "No." "I'm going into my eighth year, I've had about four or five different quarterbacks," Lewis said. "Obviously, in the state we were in last year, we need a guy that's going to put us over the hump right now. Not a project." Jacksonville won just two games in 2012, and Lewis is one of the primary weapons on an offense that is barren in terms of talent, especially at the QB position. Even so, Tebow doesn't appear to be the answer. "Not taking anything away from Tebow," Lewis added. "But we need a pure quarterback." The search continues.

  • Mr Lewis knows how to win games....2 wins and how how far in the playoffs did You go? At least Tebow knows how to win or at least try to win and not whine when it does not happen.....
  • Marcedes Lewis is a failed project. Tebow has accomplished more in one half year in Denver than Lewis has in his whole career. Next time, how about "no comment" or "its up to the coaches". idiot.
  • I am following things related to Tebow because I am a fan as many are. First the Jags need more than a pure QB as it was put but they could use a winner to show the way of what effort to put out. Tebow for sure could not hurt this team but in the right setting could help them. Winning is not all there is in any sport. Fan following is a pretty big part of a stucture of a team and if nothing else Tebow would bring in the following. another point is how does one know Tebow is not a good QB if he has not had a good chance on the field. He has proven time and time again that he can help a team become a winner. The patriots have the only pure QB in brady but he is home for the supper bowl. SF will most likely be the SB winner and the young QB driving them is a big draw and not yet a pure QB but he got his chance and for sure is making the most of it. Tebow had that same chance in Denver but when Manning became avaliable his chance was removed and that may or not be best for Denver long term. One should not cast stones unless they can back it up so thinking a pure QB is the real answer is looking up the wrong tree.
  • your right,by the way how many trophys does mercedes lewis have?lewis may not be able to catch a good qb.saying jax needs a pure qb is like asking for the queen mary when your in a rowboat.why would a very good qb want to take on the jags?if i were a good qb i can think of 27 other teams that i would rather play for.
  • I think this Lewis guy should not hire Tim Tebow!
  • Who cares what Marcedes Lewis thinks? Is this what the media thinks passes for news? No, let's don't concentrate on what the team is doing to improve and rebuild, no, let's ask a loser who thinks he is worth way more than he contributes a question that has NO BEARING on next season whatsoever. Caldwell has already made it clear that Tebow is not an option, so who cares what the stupid TE thinks about him anyway? Is this just to add more insult to injury for Tebow? Please guys get a life, start asking questions that matter.
  • Who is Marcedes Lewis....where did he play football?
    Obviously in a loser team....
    What kind of fan base does he have? Mimself.
  • jax will have another losing season with fan base dwindling.tebow would have filled the seats and given confidence. this coach won't last either.until the attitude changes to where the team wants anyone that will help jax.they will be the laughing stock of the nfl. to a bunch of losers.
