Tim Tebow’s next move appears no clearer following the news that the Jacksonville Jaguars will not be in the running to bring in the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, despite the franchise being heavily linked with the unwanted Jets’ quarterback.
While Jacksonville owner, Shad Khan, has made no secret of his desire to see the former University of Florida star pull on a Jaguars jersey, general manager, David Caldwell, has insisted that he is looking at other options in his hunt to bring in a new quarterback.
”It’s not my decision,” Khan said. ”I want to do whatever to help this team win. Who the players are is really the general manager and coaches’ […] decision. It’s really not my decision.’
”I’m telling them to take a look at Tebow and they’re saying, `We’re going to go in a different direction. That’s the difference.”
There’s no doubt that Khan’s eagerness to bring in Tebow is down as much to his business side as it is to his fan side, knowing that the 25-year old’s brand is still a draw for fans betting NFL, despite the quarterback coming off the back of a complete write off of a season in New York.
It was widely expected that the left-hander would sign for the Jaguars in the 2010 draft because former general manager, Gene Smith, did not view him as a franchise quarterback. Whether or not that view is true is still the source for plenty of debate in the NFL betting news, but it still looks as though Tebow will not be a Jaguars player next season.
A season of inactivity will have taken its toll on Tebow, be it mentally or physically, but that is not to say that the quarterback does not have something to bring to an NFL offence; which team that is - if any - is still yet to be decided.

The Denver Broncos just can't escape the shadow of Tim Tebow.
Minutes after the Baltimore Ravens upset the Broncos 38-35 in double overtime Saturday to eliminate Denver from the playoffs, Tebow's brother Peter -- who currently lives in Denver -- celebrated the Broncos' defeat on Twitter.
The Broncos have a complicated history with Tim Tebow. They drafted him in the...
There's bad quarterback play, and then there's the quarterback play of the Arizona Cardinals, who are in desperate need of a savior going forward.
Could that savior be Tim Tebow?
While it's unclear whether the Cardinals will have any interest in pursuing a trade for the Jets' backup quarterback/clipboard holder, speculation of such a move has unsurprisingly picked...
PHOENIX -- As Australian pole vaulter Steve Hooker trained on the track at Paradise Valley Community College on Tuesday morning, a crowd began to grow beside him.
But the crowd, which grew at one point to as many as 50 people, wasn't there to see Hooker, who won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, or his impressive vaults. Few, if any, even knew who the world-class...
From nearly unstoppable to nearly invisible. Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he's pretty much a player without a team - likely to be released by the New York Jets after one frustrating season and his hometown team in Jacksonville already pulling in the welcome mat.

His brother can’t start for the New York Jets, yet Peter Tebow found time to relish the troubles of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. I’m not big on the Bible and His teachings, but isn’t the above tweet unbecoming of a good Christian man? (Peter got a preaching gig in suburban Denver because of his last name.)
Oh, I get it, Tim Tebow was 1-0 in the playoffs for the Broncos...
Tim Tebow’s brother Peter lives in Denver, loves Jesus (according to his Twitter bio, at least, I don’t know him personally or anything) and has over 15,000 Twitter followers, because every Bill Clinton needs his Roger. When the Broncos went down to the Ravens on Saturday, Peter took to the Tweeter and did a little harmless gloating:That’s not too bad, right? A little misplaced...
Following today’s game between the Broncos and Ravens in which Denver ended up losing after throwing an interception in double overtime that resulted in Baltimore being in position to win the game, Tim Tebow’s brother Peter tweeted that he was very happy to see the Broncos lose. Did anyone else just see Payton Manning give the awkward turtle sign?!? — Peter Tebow (@petertebow...
Move over, Tim Tebow. Kaepernicking is all the craze now.
In the wake of San Francisco's 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers in Saturday night's NFC divisional playoff, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's touchdown celebration of flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep has taken off on social media.
Several 49ers fans have posted pictures of themselves in...
Tim Tebow is sitting in quarterback purgatory right now, not sure about his future, and unsure where he’ll end up. Many pundits wonder where Tebow will end up, and some wonder if he can ever be productive.
You can now add former Giants quarterback and CBS commentator Phil Simms to the list of those who are not sure if has what it takes.
Simms told David Letterman that “it...
It's amazing how fast can things change and if you're a Jets fan, you know what I'm talking about. The Jets have gone through alot in these last two seasons and they have been a perfect example of how hard it is to compete in the NFL these days, even if you had recent playoff success.
The Jets have not only missed the playoffs in the last two seasons, but they have...
