Tim Tebow’s likely return to the NFL has ignited a new controversy after angry fans voiced frustration that Tebow is receiving another shot in the big leagues while Colin Kaepernick remains sidelined. Tebow, 33, also will reunite with coach Urban Meyer. The pair won two college football national championships while at Florida in 2006 and 2008. Tebow, of course, is not guaranteed a starting spot, nor is he guaranteed a spot on the Jaguar’s 53-man regular season roster. Tebow will have to earn his spot on the team during training camp and preseason games.
