Social Media Coming Down Hard On Tim Tebow Following Jags Preseason Debut

Videos by OutKick

The Jacksonville Jaguars took the field for their first preseason game on Saturday with Trevor Lawrence under center in his NFL debut, and Tim Tebow made his return to the league — this time as a tight end.

The former Florida Gator has gone viral for all the wrong reasons after the 13-23 preseason loss to the Browns. On a second-down play with 28 seconds left in the game, Tebow made a bad slide block attempt and was left spinning.

Yahoo Sports reports that Tebow was supposed to help pave a lane for running back Dare Ogunbowale, but that didn’t exactly happen.

In total, Tebow took the field for 16 snaps Saturday and didn’t register a catch as a receiver. He had an opportunity to snag one catch, but receiver Tavon Austin stepped in from of him for the reception and advanced it up the field, the article states.

With the Jags having to cut their roster down to 85 by Tuesday, only time will tell if he will make it to see another preseason game.
