CLEMSON — Former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence could soon be throwing passes to another college football legend.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, who are expected to draft Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick Thursday night, recently worked out former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Rapoport tweeted Thursday afternoon that: “Tim Tebow recently worked out for the #Jaguars, source said, and there has been at least some discussion of him signing.”
If Jacksonville does sign Tebow, he would come to the Jaguars as a tight end, according to Rapoport.
The Jags are coached by former Ohio State and Florida head coach Urban Meyer. Tebow played for Meyer at Florida from 2006-09.
Tebow was drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He spent two seasons in Denver and one year with the Jets before being cut.
He also played minor league baseball for four years, including part of the 2017 season with the Columbia Fireflies. Tebow announced his retirement from baseball earlier this year.
The NFL Draft begins on Thursday night at 8 p.m.
