Despite the Cleveland Browns' best attempts to join them, the Jacksonville Jaguars are quickly becoming the butt of all NFL jokes. After all, the ultimate sign of futility may be when an outsider looks at your team and believes they can do a better job.
Tracy McGrady, who recently retired after 16 NBA seasons, believes he could have a second career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jacksonville @jaguars need to bring me on in for a tryout at QB or receiver!

McGrady, 34, may have of course been joking, but Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew did not laugh when asked about those comments on Wednesday.
“You’re more than welcome to sign a waiver and come to a live practice,” Jones-Drew told Jacksonsville.com. “We’ll see how it works out for you.”
Lighten up, MJD.
McGrady would be a great addition to the Jaguars. He has barely played over the past few NBA seasons, so McGrady’s body should be well rested. Jacksonville has only scored one offensive touchdown in two games, so McGrady could not be worse than any of the Jaguars’ current options. McGrady is also the perfect ringer for Jaguars players to have during their offseason charity basketball games.
Imagine Tim Tebow throwing passes to McGrady this season. Sure, there is no chance for a completion, but at least there would be a reason to watch a Jaguars game.
Sometimes you just need a good laugh.
