Tebow returning to the NFL

          Timmothy Richard Tebow hasn’t played in the NFL for nine years, but the former quarterback has the love of new Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer. Enough so, that he’s bringing the former Heisman trophy winner in to join the team.

Meyer said Tebow’s recent workout with the team was jaw-dropping for the club’s other coaches.

“ ... (The coaches) said, ‘Wow, this guy (has) ball skills, he’s a great athlete, and he looks like he’s 18 years old not whatever he is, 33,’” Meyer recently told PFF’s Cris Collinsworth.

Tebow’s athleticism isn’t news to Meyer, who gave the Heisman winner more credit when talking to his assistants.

“I said, ‘Guys, you don’t understand. This guy is the most competitive maniac you’re ever going to talk to. Let’s give it a shot,’” added Meyer, who worked with Tebow for four years at Florida. The pair helped the Gators win two BCS national championships together.

The Jaguars reportedly intend to sign Tebow to a one-year deal as a tight end. 

The 2010 first-round pick spent time with four NFL teams over five years, though he only appeared in regular-season games over his first three years. He started 14 games for the Denver Broncos between the 2010 and 2011 seasons, posting an 8-6 record.
