We now interrupt NFL Draft Day for some juicy NFL gossip.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Tim Tebow — yes, the Tim Tebow — recently worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars and the team is considering signing him. That’s wild enough, but according to Rapoport, the former Florida quarterback actually worked out as a tight end. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed the report, adding that Tebow was the one to reach out to the Jags to request a tryout.
Of course, the Jaguars are now coached by Urban Meyer, who coached Tebow at Florida and now lives down the street from him in Jacksonville. Tebow, now 33 years old, hasn’t played in a regular-season NFL game since 2012. He was last on a practice squad in 2015.
As you might expect, Twitter is losing its mind.

Not enough NFL madness for you? Schefter also dropped the bomb that Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay.
Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team, league and team sources told ESPN on Thursday.
