Tim Tebow Trade Rumors: Jacksonville Jaguars Said To Have 'Serious Interest'

The biggest story in sports has officially transferred from the shoulders of Peyton Manning to the man he'll succeed as the Denver Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow. By all accounts, John Elway and the Broncos aim to please Tebow, and suitors are already starting to line up. We learned earlier the New York Jets are said to have serious interest in Tebow, and now we can add another team with similar intentions: the Jacksonville Jaguars.

From RotoWorld:

The Jags apparently aren't just discussing the idea "internally." Citing multiple NFL GMs, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora has suggested Tebow might bring back no more than a fifth-round pick as compensation. If so, several teams should be interested, and owner Shad Khan's fondness of Tebow dates back to 2010. The Jets and Jaguars appear to be Tebow's likeliest suitors at this point in time. The Broncos didn't plan to drive a hard bargain, but they could as interest begins to swell. In Jacksonville, it's believed Tebow would start out only as a third-stringer and Wildcat option.
