Jags Caldwell: No Homecoming for Tebow

Well, cross Jacksonville off the list of places that the Jets might be able to trade The Darling of Bristol.

In his introduction yesterday, erstwhile Jets GM candidate and new Jacksonville GM David Caldwell said that he is not interested in Tim Tebow.  To put a finer point on it, Caldwell questioned Tebow’s viability in the league at all.

“I can’t imagine a scenario where he will be a Jacksonville Jaguar, even if he’s released” Caldwell told reporters.

ESPN NY had reported last month that the Jets would not be bringing Tebow back and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen had said that it was a “virtual certainty” that Jacksonville would pick him up.  In that previous scenario, it sure sounds like the owner of the team wanted Tebow, and during the interview process Khan was disabused of that notion by his new GM.

The Jets are in a real pickle with their quarterback spot and most everywhere else so the hope for a trade to get some value back for Tebow now looks very unlikely.  While we’re sure the Jets will put some more calls out around the league on the matter before releasing him outright, expect the Jets to eventually cut him before the start of the new league year.  Tebow would save the Jets $1.5 million on next year’s cap if he was cut.

I think if someone is that dumb to give up 2 1st round picks for JPP and we have 2 1st round picks this year and next year, giants should jump on it. I trust Reese and this front office to make the right picks.

Now lets hope that some other team gives JPP a ridiculous contract offer - so we can get the two first round picks, and he can disappoint another team's fans.....

@Jeff Comerford He's way better than you are giving him credit for.. DE is not only about sacks! He is a beast against the run and with some better players around him, is still a handful to deal with as a pass rusher.. If he were to walk.. it will be a "you don't know what you got til it's gone" scenario! This was the right move and no team will give up 2 1st round picks for him, so he will be a Giant in 2015

@stevejg @Jeff Comerford Sorry - but you must have been watching different games then i was.  This "beast" had 27 total tackles (and 2 sacks) in 2013 and in the first 11 games of the season had 3.5 sacks and 31 tackles - before kicking it on at the end of the season (after we were eliminated) by having 9 sacks and 21 tackles.


For the last couple of seasons, I have watched him be content to "dance" with the offensive tackles - rather then make plays - until he realized he was playing for a contract.


At $14+ million - it is a lot to tie up on one person who has mailed it in for years.  The giants are not one player away - and they can use that 14 million - and 2 draft choices to improve their team.

I think he will end up being over paid this year, but it's just for one year.

The Giants get to see him for another year and decide.

Listen. JPP is not washed up. He played his best at the end of the year. That shows me that he's actually on the rise. BTW according to Dan Graziano its not a done deal. FYI.
