More craziness filed to ESPN: Jaguars are back in the mix, seeing if they now can pull off a trade with Denver for Tim Tebow.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21, 2012
The Jaguars and the St. Louis Rams reportedly knew about the salary hang up in the contract and that was why they backed off. Now that the trade is in jeopardy, Tebow might come cheaper and according to Shefter the Jaguars are back in play.
