UPDATED 11/5, 11:50 a.m. ET: Dez Bryant tweeted his reaction to Tim Tebow’s signing.
He then explained the reason behind his post, urging people to “Pay ATTENTION” and explaining the importance of “unity in black society and taking care of US.”
See original story below.
A deal between both parties has not been completed, but it’s likely that it could be finalized after rookie mini-camp. The deal would also reunite Tebow with his former Florida Gators head coach, Urban Meyer, who will be in his first year as Jacksonville’s head coach.
Tebow came into the NFL as a quarterback but didn’t live up to the hype of his Heisman-winning days in Gainsville. In 2015, Tebow announced that he would be leaving the game of football to focus solely on his baseball career (which didn’t fare better than his NFL dreams). Now, the 33-year-old will be making the transition to tight end after not taking a professional snap since 2012.
The Jags are looking to build around Clemson quarterback and No. 1 overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence. As proven by Travis Kelce, George Kittle, and other elite talents, a tight end can be a safety net for a young quarterback. Meyer understands this and decided to draft Ohio State tight end Luke Farrell along with extending Tebow a contract.
