Tebow still remains a possible option for Jaguars

At 33, Florida Gators legend Tim Tebow is considered to be past his prime by NFL standards.

He has not been on an NFL roster since 2015, when he failed to make the Philadelphia Eagles' final 53-man for the regular season. 

Yet, there is legitimacy that Tebow is considering an NFL comeback, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reports..

And the Jaguars are seriously weighing their option of possibly giving him a shot to compete for a roster spot as a tight end.   

''That decision is certainly not made yet,'' Meyer said after Saturday's draft. 

But both Meyer and general manager Trent Baalke is still considering the option of adding Tebow after he recently worked out for the franchise. During this weekend's NFL Draft, both Meyer and Baalke confirmed that the workout did indeed happen. 

Meyer said he only caught a glimpse of it, though. 

''He worked out with our tight ends coach,'' Meyer said. ''I stopped by, did not stay for the whole workout. We're going to revisit here in the near future. That's how it all happened.

Asked Sunday if he feels giving Tebow a shot back into the NFL was based solely on their friendship and admiration for each other, Meyer offered a quick reply.

''I have one job and that is to win games with the Jacksonville Jaguars,'' he said. ''If Tebow or Travis Etienne can help us win, then that's my job to get them ready to play.''
