The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed free agent Tim Tebow. He has agreed to a one-year deal with the team.

Tebow will attempt to make the roster as a tight end. This is a position he has not played before.

The move reunites Tebow with Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer, who previously coached the college football legend at the University of Florida. With Tebow leading the team, the Gators won two national championships in 2006 and 2008.

“I want to thank the Jaguars for the opportunity to compete and earn the chance to be part of this team,” Tebow said. “I know it will be a challenge, but it is a challenge I embrace. I am dedicated to taking the direction of our coaching staff and learning from my teammates. I appreciate everyone’s support as I embark on this new journey.”

Tebow retired from a minor league baseball career this year. He spent five years in the New York Mets organization.

He last played in the NFL during the 2012 season with the New York Jets. He also spent two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

With the Jaguars, Tebow will be the fourth tight end on the depth chart. Chris Manhertz is the projected starter with James O’Shaughnessy and Luke Farrell backing him up along with Tebow.
