Tim Tebow’s move to close end with Jaguars ‘a move of desperation’, ESPN star says – fr


Tim Tebow was once a quarterback, but he will transition to a tight winger for the Jaguars.

However, some players in the league still believe that Tebow still has a long way to go before he is considered a real player in this position. All-Pro tight end George Kittle and former Pro Bowler Greg Olsen lead the way at “Tight End University” in Nashville, Tennessee, and when they put together an invite list they decided not to include the old product from Florida.

Kittle and Olsen both explained why they didn’t include Tebow, saying it’s nothing personal.

“So nothing against Tim Tebow, but I struggled to invite – I only wish the best for Tim Tebow, and I hope he has a fantastic season playing tight – but it’s tough for me not to invite a tight substitute over, say the New York Giants, instead of inviting a guy who just started playing the tight position because we have limited places, ”Kittle said via 49erswebzone.com. “I wish I could make it so that every tight end in the NFL could come, [so] it is accessible to all. But what we tried to do this year, we wanted to pay it all off for all the tight ends which kind of makes it a special event for all the tight ends. “

Kittle explained that they expected to only have “20 guys” at “Tight End University”, but that they should have more than 50 tight ends at the meeting, where they participate in a week of training, information sharing and everything-. around improvement.

Olsen, on the other hand, didn’t feel like he needed a thorough explanation. Instead, he went straight to the point of why they felt Tebow didn’t deserve to be a part of the event just yet.

“If he’s on a roster this year and he’s playing tight, we’d love to have him,” said Olsen. “We would love to work with him. Once he’s officially a tight end, we’d love to work with him. “

Tebow will be one of six tight ends competing at the Jacksonville minicamp. There’s a good chance he won’t even make the final roster, which is why Kittle and Olsen don’t yet feel like he’s a true tight end.
