Steelers' Devin Bush seems displeased Tim Tebow getting another NFL shot before Colin Kaepernick

When it was announced that Tim Tebow would be returning to the NFL, many fans could not believe that he was getting another shot before Colin Kaepernick. That shock was also felt by at least one player. Steelers linebacker Devin Bush expressed his feelings about the situation on Twitter.

The Steelers and Jaguars are not scheduled to play each other in the 2021 or 2022 season, so Bush will only have a chance to face off against the Jags in the postseason unless Tebow is able to extend his career for a few years. The overall point remains: Bush is clearly unhappy with Tebow getting a chance in the NFL over Kaepernick.

People will fairly point out that Tebow is not joining the Jaguars as a quarterback. He is reportedly signing a one-year deal with the team as a tight end. And, of course, it's not like Tebow has anything to do with Kaepernick not being given a chance to play over the last few years. 

For many frustrated fans and, based on Bush's tweet, a few players, however, Tebow's signing does highlight how unfairly Kaepernick has been treated by the league.
