Urban Meyer: We’ll revisit Tim Tebow as a tight end in the near future

After Tim Tebow’s career as a football quarterback ended, he tried baseball. Now that his baseball career has ended, he may be trying football again, as a tight end.

Jaguars coach Urban Meyer, the man for whom Tebow played at Florida, addressed on Saturday the news that Tebow had a recent workout with the team.

“Tim and I’ve talked about, when he was a quarterback in the NFL that was a big topic,” Meyer told reporters regarding the possibility that Tebow would play tight end. “I was so busy, I didn’t give him the time. ‘What do you think? What do you think?’ and I didn’t know, I was too busy to even think it through. I know playing a position in the National Football League without — that’s a long shot, this is years ago. How did it happen this time? We had a conversation. He worked out with our tight ends coach, I stopped by, did not stay for the whole workout. Then our focus went to the NFL draft. We’re going to revisit here in the near future. That’s how that all happened.”

Meyer was asked how concerned he is about the tight end position for the Jaguars, who drafted only one tight end, Ohio State’s Luke Farrell in round five.

Yeah, he got pigeon-holed, and never really had a chance; really saw the absolute worst in people mocking him...

Reminded me of the story of Lot in The Bible, all those folks frustrated they couldn't sink their teeth into him...

Would love to see him add a ring to his history...

Yeah, I didn’t like it. I didn’t believe in his arm, even in college, but he came in the league and won. He deserved the chance to grow.

Don't feel too sorry for him... he's got a hot wife, the former Miss Universe.

Looks like the near future is here already! Best of luck Mr. Tebow. Just not when you are playing the Saints.
