Former NFL phenom Tim Tebow has now been unceremoniously cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As The Daily Wire reports:
The Tim Tebow experiment has come to a close.
On Tuesday morning, ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported Tebow’s release from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tebow signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars in May to once again play under Urban Meyer — his college coach at the University of Florida. Before the signing, Tebow had been out of the NFL since 2012 and had been playing professional baseball in the minor leagues for the New York Mets. There was never a guarantee that Tebow would make the regular-season roster, and his lack of experience at the position put him at a disadvantage.
In the Jaguars’ first preseason game, Tebow played 16 snaps at tight end.
ESPN host Stephen Smith had previously called Tebow’s signing an example of so-called ‘White Privilege.’
