Though if it works he’ll appear to be brilliant, coach Urban Meyer had to have known that bringing in Tim Tebow to play tight end (a position he hasn’t played since his freshman year of high school) would be lampooned around the league.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Devin Bush was one of the people who got in on the action. On Twitter, he expressed his surprise that Tebow ended up on a roster before former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who hasn’t been on a team since 2016, when he made headlines for kneeling during the national anthem. Kaepernick and the NFL settled a lawsuit where the former alleged that the latter colluded to keep him out of the league.

Bush also said that he’s excited for the next matchup against the Jaguars, though the two teams aren’t scheduled to face each other again until 2023.

After Bleacher Report posted a tweet that included Bush’s comments, he quote tweeted it with, “Here comes the bored media.”

It’s pretty clear that most of the league isn’t taking this move very seriously, but for the Jags, it’s a bit of a Hail Mary to solve the problems at tight end that they failed to address earlier this offseason.

Tebow’s chances of making the final roster are slim, and if he did it wouldn’t be a very good sign. But regardless, this seems to be a storyline that will dominate the rest of the Jaguars’ offseason, aside from the addition of quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
