If I were Shahid Khan and I had the ability to choose between Tim Tebow or Blaine Gabbert to sell tickets for me, this is a no-brainer.
Khan has grand plans for the Jaguars, and he says he intends to stay in Jacksonville. He will need to find a market if he hopes to succeed long-term, though, and the team has struggled to fill the stadium at times in the past.
Tebow is a legend in Florida, where he helped lead the Gators to two National Championships. The moment this trade was made official, I guarantee the team would sell out the new Tebow jerseys.
Khan was recently asked if he would have drafted Tebow if he had owned the team when he was coming out of college, to which he replied:
100 percent I would have. Absolutely. . . . Obviously the Rams drafted Sam Bradford, and I was talking to Wayne then on what they ought to do.
I should have an offline conversation with you, OK? I’m going to absolutely talk your ear off. Some of the stuff might not be politically correct, but I share your sentiment. I think, when is the next time Jacksonville is going to have an athlete like Tim Tebow?
I'm guessing Gabbert will also be looking for a new home by the end of it all.
If Peyton Manning ends up in Denver for the Broncos, Tebow ends up in Jacksonville starting for the Jaguars.
