Many fans were anticipating the start of the Jacksonville Jaguars preseason game on Saturday. Perhaps it was for the number one pick Trevor Lawrence making his debut. Actually, it was for Tim Tebow.

The former quarterback turned baseball player has now turned into a tight end. Tebow signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract to play for the Jaguars as a tight end. So many fans were anticipating seeing how Tebow would do as a tight end.

However, Tebow was not on the highlights for his skill at the position. Tebow played 16 snaps in the 23-13 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The newly turned tight end ended up on the highlights for when he was targeted for a pass from quarterback Gardner Minshew at the very end of the second quarter, but wide receiver Tavon Austin appeared to steal his catch.

In another viral highlight that fans made fun of was when Tebow made a poor blocking attempt. After the poor attempt, he got up and then appeared to spear a teammate with his helmet by accident.

Chris Manhertz and James O’Shaughnessy are slated to be the starters, and fifth-round pick Luke Farrell may be the third-string tight end.
