However, the team want the 33-year-old to try to get into the roster in a tight way.
No deal has yet been reached, but the team plans to sign a one-year contract for Tebow in the near future, according to the report.
When asked about a possible signing, the Jaguars told CNN: “We are not commenting on any potential future signing.”
CNN is trying to contact Tebow representatives for comment.
Tebow became a sensation in American sports during his time at the University of Florida where he was coached for four years by current Jaguars coach Urban Meyer.
While playing college football, Tebow won two national championships and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007.
He was drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos where he spent two seasons, compiling an 8-6 record as a starter, including a thrilling late-game winning streak that made fans love him. .
However, he was eventually replaced by Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning.
Tebow spent a year with the New York Jets in 2012 – during which he attempted just eight passes, completing six while playing special teams and carrying the ball 32 times for 102 yards.
After playing on the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles practice teams, Tebow was left out of the league.
This means that if Tebow signs with the Jaguars it would be his first time on an NFL roster since 2015 and if he takes the field it would be his first appearance in an NFL regular season game since 2012.
In the meantime, he pursued a professional baseball career with the New York Mets from 2016-2020 before announcing his retirement from baseball in February 2021.
