Former NFL Quarterback and minor league baseball player Tim Tebow recently had a tryout with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Ian Rappaport.

Tebow retired this winter from the Mets where he advanced to AAA. Tebow tried out as a Tight End, according to Rappaport, a position he refused to play during his NFL career.

The Jaguars Head Coach is Urban Meyer, who Tebow played for from 2006-2009 when he played for the University of Florida. Meyer and Tebow won two national titles together while with the Gators.
