After two years of the failed Blaine Gabbert experiment and one failed attempt to trade for Tim Tebow, the Jacksonville Jaguars are considered a virtual lock to get Tebow on their second go ’round.
According to ESPN’s Christ Mortensen, league sources are saying that Tim Tebow being traded or signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason is a “virtual certainty.”
It’s no secret that Tim Tebow is unhappy as a New York Jet. He recently went from second string quarterback to third strong quarterback and has mostly been treated terribly by the organization.
What’s most interesting is how Tim Tebow ended up in green and white this season:
“The Jaguars offered a fourth-round pick to Denver in March and proposed to pay $3 million to the Broncos to compensate for money that had been advanced to Tebow. The Broncos gave Tebow his choice of teams and the former Florida quarterback decided his opportunity to play in New York was greater than Jacksonville, based on conversations with Jets coach Rex Ryan.”
In other words; Tim Tebow will now have the unprecedented opportunity to take back a terrible decision. How many people actually get that chance?
So why are the Jaguars still hot on Tebow? In two years in Jacksonville Blaine Gabbert has been worse than awful. One look at his ESPN stat page shows how little he has developed as a quarterback in the NFL. It’s not good when you’re supposed franchise quarterback is throwing for less touchdowns than games started two seasons in a row. And before being placed on injured reserved he was benched in favor of back up quarterback Chad Henne citing “performance.”
If these reports are true, Gabbert Time is coming to an end in Jacksonville and Tebow Time is chugging into town.

What do you think, should Tim Tebow be the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars next season?
