17. Tebow Time
What was the point of bringing Tim Tebow back? All it did was attract derisive headlines. In fact, The Guardian even called it NFL cronyism at its very worst. Tebow was a Heisman winner under Meyer’s tutelage at Florida. It’s natural for them to have a close relationship but it’s also ridiculous to think that Tebow was going to make an impact.
The idea of converting him to a tight end came about eight years too late. Tebow took up a place on the practice roster and enjoyed minutes that would have benefited a younger player. Meanwhile, it wasn’t even entertaining to watch. It was just a sad and poor indictment on Meyer. He made the decision not to give him a roster spot but lost face anyway.
