Former Florida Gator Heisman Trophy winner and National Champion Tim Tebow may be close to making a return to the NFL -- this time as a tight end.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday afternoon that the Jacksonville Jaguars, coached by newly appointed Urban Meyer, are ready to sign Tebow on a one-year deal.
Rapoport says that no deal has been made official as of yet, but one could be completed "in the next week or so."
Meyer is working to rebuild the team following the franchise's 1-15 finish in the 2020 season -- its worst in franchise history.
Tebow would be teaming up with a pair of offensive weapons from Clemson taken in the first round of the NFL Draft in quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne.
From 2010 to 2012, Tebow made 35 appearances in the NFL with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. He threw for a total of 17 touchdowns, nine interceptions, and rushed for 12 touchdowns.
