Tim Tebow is struggling with to form the Jacksonville Jaguars roster, wanting to level to his primitive college coach that he is worth keeping spherical. The primitive quarterback turned tight stop has impressed City Meyer at cases, but there are unruffled parts of the plan he needs to harness.
“He has factual palms. In his drill work, he is enormous, but ought to you acquire in a competitive 2nd, valid [because of his] lack of journey he wants to physique the ball,” Meyer suggested newshounds at Jaguars camp Saturday. “At the same time as you occur to acquire to some extent where two of us are going after it, you possess got to scurry acquire the ball. He is combating thru that a little little bit of bit, but he has the skill location to determine on the ball.”
Tebow has a sound opportunity to form the Jaguars roster. Jacksonville has Chris Manhertz and rookie Luke Farrell combating for the starting up job and outmoded James O’Shaughnessy competing for a plan on the roster. Tebow is within the image, but his uncommon skill location would possibly per chance maybe well simply persuade the Jaguars to keep him spherical — either by having four tight ends on the roster or beating out one of veterans for a plan.
“[Competition is] alive and well and the truth of 90 gamers is that you just’re going knock it down to 53, that is actuality,” Meyer stated. “I had a chat with the crew about that and I believe I’d like to purchase the subjectivity out of it. Or not it is a little little bit of bit take care of when we had Joe Burrow and Dwayne Haskins [at Ohio State], my gosh [they are] two first-spherical draft picks. Or not it’s not heavenly to a participant to not possess objectiveness in there and that manner charting the entire lot.
“Nothing’s competitive yet. So, starting up Monday, we’re going to are trying to purchase the subjectivity out of who performs and who makes the crew.”
The Jaguars tight stop opponents would possibly per chance maybe well simply unruffled final right thru the preseason. If Tebow can toughen on his weaknesses over the following loads of weeks, Meyer can possess a reason to give him a roster plan.
