Some people are not happy that Tim Tebow is back in the NFL.
The Jaguars have reportedly made the decision to sign the Florida Heisman winner as a tight end, and he’ll be on a one-year deal for Urban Meyer. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.

What’s the problem? Well, people are apparently pissed that Tebow got the call prior to Kaepernick, and the former 49ers quarterback was trending on Twitter as a result, according to BroBible.
Tebow – Hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012. Gets another shot.
Kaepernick – Hasn’t played since 2016. Gets nothing.

There’s no way you can tell me that Tim Tebow deserves to be on a team as an unproven tight end who hasn’t played in 9 years more than Colin Kaepernick. There’s just no way that’s gonna make sense.

I hate to be the guy who states the obvious here, but there’s literally no comparison between Kaepernick and Tebow.
There’s none at all. Tebow is returning to the NFL on a small deal to play tight end. Has Kaepernick, who famously kicked off the national anthem protests, been denied the opportunity to try out as a tight end?
Does he even want to?
Remember, Colin Kaepernick isn’t in the NFL because…
– “he was a terrible QB”
– “he brings a media circus everywhere”
– “he hasn’t played in years”
– “kneeling is disrespectful” pic.twitter.com/12vwtUlTIz

Imagine how dumb you have to be to look at Tim Tebow returning to the NFL after playing minor league baseball, and thinking it somehow cost Kaepernick an opportunity.
He’s literally playing a different position!
Waiting for Colin Kaepernick to sign with the #Jaguars as a tight end too….. Wait, no?

Sometimes, the internet makes me lose faith in humanity. People comparing Tebow playing tight end to Kaepernick not returning to the NFL is one of those times.
