But considering quarterback Blaine Gabbert had just finished his rookie season, the Jaguars' front office and coaches convinced Khan to give Gabbert another year.
Needless to say, Year Two of the Blaine Gabbert experiment has been abysmal. So who else would Khan expect to be the savior next season?
Tim Tebow, of course! Jacksonville's native son.
We received our first indication Saturday night that it very well could become a reality after ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that a deal sending Tebow to the Jaguars is "a virtual certainty." Additionally, Mort went on to say that Jacksonville will have an "open competition" at the quarterback position in 2013, meaning Tebow would have a chance to win the job.
I mean, c'mon, everyone knows this makes too much sense: Tebow's hometown, a new owner who wants a stadium sold, a terrible quarterback situation already as it is, the chance to make this small-market team nationally relevant, and so on and so on.
It's perfect, isn't it?
Tebow to the Jaguars basically has to happen -- for the Jaguars and for Tebow. Because, let's face it, what other NFL team wants him and the circus that comes with him?
Umm, the Toronto Argonauts play in the CFL, and not even Joe Theismann believes Tebow is good enough for the CFL.
