The Jaguars have released Tim Tebow and Skip Bayless was actually the voice of reason for once on how Tebow will be remembered.
Just like that, the Tim Tebow experiment with the Jacksonville Jaguars has finally come to an end. After Tebow’s poor blocking went viral over the weekend during a preseason game, it felt like only a matter of time before he was cut.
Now, after a failed MLB career, it looks like Tebow’s days in the NFL are over too. Ask Skip Bayless about it and while he’s not shocked that Tebow was cut, he really is taken aback at how the once superstar player will be remembered down the road.
Tim Tebow’s legacy has most definitely taken a hit with his latest failure
Bayless sure has a point. Remember when he powered the Broncos to the AFC West title in 2011 and tossed his 80-yard touchdown to Demaryius Thomas to take down the Steelers in the AFC Wild Card Round that year?
As great as that moment was for him, he quite literally never started another NFL game again. It’s something that’s downright stunning. At the end of the day, though, Tebow simply wasn’t good enough to be a starter in this league.
Folks had been calling for him to move to tight end years ago. Yet, Tebow wasn’t ready to make that change. Keep in mind, Tebow will go down as one of the best college quarterbacks of his generation. He was hoping to team up with Meyer once again, this time in Jacksonville.
While Meyer gave him a shot, Tebow once again wasn’t good enough to make it to Week 1. Now, we’ll see what’s next for Tebow, but we know for a fact that he won’t be suited up when the regular season does arrive.
