Do you remember Tim Tebow? The Heisman Trophy-winning Florida Gators quarterback who couldn't quite make it in the NFL, then tried a career as a minor league baseball player?
He's back. Again.
According to both Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Tebow is attempting to make an NFL comeback, but not as a quarterback. This time he's a tight end, and he reportedly reached out to his old Florida coach Urban Meyer, who is now the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, to request a tryout.
Tim Tebow recently reached out to the Jaguars and requested a tryout at the tight end position, per sources, a move many believe would have extended his NFL career had he made the transition earlier. He recently worked out with the Jaguars’ TE coach. No decision has been made.

Update on a former first-round pick: Tim Tebow recently worked out for the #Jaguars, source said, and there has been at least some discussion of him signing. Oh, and he’s a tight end now.

If you're wondering how Tebow got in touch with Meyer, it's possible he could have sent him a text or called him up. But it's also possible that they could have run into each other on the street outside their homes. According to the Jacksonville Daily Record, Meyer and his wife recently purchased a home on the same street as Tebow and his wife live.
