The player's reactions to this signing on social media speaks for them, not me.
Oh, the injustice and inequality of life!
Players being mad about this makes as much sense as me being miffed every time I see a beautiful woman married to a man whom I think I look better than, or make more money than. Some of these players need to get over themselves. Teams are free to sign whoever they want to sign. Maybe if they’d spend less time on other players business and work on themselves they’d have jobs.
Signing him as a camp body hurts no one. If he makes the 53 man squad he simply proves he belongs.
Why waste time working on yourself when all you need to do is sit back for 9 years and wait for your college coach to get an NFL head coaching gig
Seriously? Most of the time I chalk up your absurd comments to you just wanting attention. To some people, especially little kids, even bad attention is better than no attention. For your sake I hope that’s your motive with this post.
NFL teams are allowed to have up to 90 players on their roster until mid August, then 80. Two cuts during pre-season take it to 75 then 53 for the season. Only because of who it is why some are spewing their predictable garbage.
Why Jaguars' Tim Tebow addition is no reason to get upset: What's behind his mid-30s opportunity at tight end
What part of my post made you triggered
As one player said, the signing is more about who you know than anything else. May not be fair for some, but that's how life works.
I was surprised that Jax didn't sign Tebow 10 yrs ago
I do think it's a little more complicated. Jax has a first time coach, who appears to be playing favorites. Tebow hasn't played a snap in the NFL in 9 years and has never played TE. That right there makes it an odd signing.
Now we love Tebow and know he should be given the benefit of the doubt. But that doesn't mean the rest of the football world feels the same. No matter what, Tebow will be a distraction. Could be good, Could be bad, but the media will write stories.
Having said that, I don't think bringing him to camp is bad. 90ish folks go to camp. Tebow is everything an employer wants.
But expectations are gonna be out of this world. And Tebow is gonna be asked to learn and do things he's never really done before.
A lot of the players complaining are freaking hypocrites.
They don’t have a problem when guys who have run ins with the law get repeated chances but god forbid Tebow gets a spot.
Those guys with runs ins with the law are productive at their actual positions.
Great. A win at all costs stupidity, err mentality.
I wouldn't include the Pats on that list. He never looked worse than during his time with the Pats. He didn't deserve to make that team. The other three, lay the wood.
Dez? Mmm, he’s seemed to be a pain in the ass at Dallas. Pissing off owners isn’t the best way to stay employed. Players have to be elite if they want to keep their jobs while being unliked by their bosses.
Just a dumb post
Most employers don’t like to employ people who have run ins with the law. If they are good enough, they sometimes get second and third chances unfortunately.
Bringing up Dez' issues doesn't take away from his point, though. Name another player who hasn't played for 9 seasons who suddenly gets signed to play another position...
Maybe his tryout was just that good!
Urban Meyer Says Jags Coaches Gushed Over Tebow After Tryout, 'Looks Like He's 18!'
Meyer says his staff actually worked out Tebow multiple times in recent weeks ... and afterward, each time, they could not stop complimenting the ex-quarterback.
"They come in and they said, 'Wow. You know, this guy's ball skills,'" Meyer said. "'He's a great athlete. He looks like he's 18 years old, not whatever he is, 33.'"
Just like we were perplexed as to why he could not get signed as a backup after Denver. You cannot convince me that he was not a better QB than the majority of league backups at the time.
