The speculation surrounding the future of Tim Tebow has died down considerably over the past week or so with no indications as to what the New York Jets intends to do with the popular backup quarterback.
Despite no clear indications of what the future holds for Tebow, the rumors began to swirl once again on Tuesday with the Arizona Cardinals potentially a landing spot for the former Heisman trophy winner according to TMZ.com:
After getting screwed in New York, Tim Tebow has touched down in the Grand Canyon State … and spent his Monday training for hours at an Arizona community college … and TMZ has the proof.
There are rumors that Tebow will be traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars during the off-season … but it’s possible the Arizona Cardinals could also bite … it’s not like they could get any worse.
With the Jacksonville Jaguars expressing no interest in acquiring Tebow via trade or free agency after hiring GM David Caldwell, the future of the 25-year-old is uncertain to say the least. The Jaguars were thought to be a perfect fit for Tebow considering his massive popularity in Jacksonville and the team’s struggles at the quarterback position with second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
Now that Caldwell appears to be intent on sticking with Gabbert with the belief that the young quarterback can turn it around after two disappointing seasons, Tebow is no longer an option and the speculation continues.
The Cardinals are a team in desperate need of an upgrade at the quarterback position. Kevin Kolb doesn’t seem to be the long-term answer in Arizona and Tebow may be able to come in and bring some excitement to a team needing a spark at the position.
With Tebow working out extensively in Arizona, the rumors were bound to follow with the Cardinals likely to be his next team. Although Tebow landing in Arizona may ultimately be the scenario that unfolds, there’s still no indication from the Jets concerning the young quarterback’s immediate future.
