Tim Tebow may have only played a little more than 10 percent of the Jets offensive snaps this year, but he's still a hot commodity in the rumor mill. Reports of a Tebow trade to his hometown of Jacksonville, Fla. sprouted up over night, as the Jets and Jaguars were rumored to be in discussions. Now, that speculation is being shot down. There is no truth to the Tebow trade talks between the Jags and the Jets, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. A Jets source told Breer that the Jets and Jaguars have not had any discussions regarding Tebow. This isn't the first time that Tebow has been linked to Jacksonville, though. Before the Broncos dealt Tebow to the Jets during the offseason, the Jaguars reportedly made an offer in an attempt to acquire the polarizing quarterback. Ultimately, the Jets landed Tebow and it's been nothing but peaches and rosebuds ever since -- well, I guess not all speculation can be true. Tebow has completed two of his three passes for 32 yards this season. He's also run the ball 23 times for 78 yards but has yet to find the end zone either with his arm or legs. For now, it appears that Tebow will continue lining up in the backfield, and sometimes at receiver, for Gang Green. The Jags will just have to wait until the offseason to make their pitch at bringing Tebowmania to Jacksonville.
