Tim Tebow’s signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars became official Thursday, clearing him to take the field for the team’s second workout for Phase 2. With that being the case, it didn’t take long for the news to get a glimpse of the Jags’ new tight end as he was making his way to the field for his first NFL practice session since 2015.

If there is one takeaway we can garner from the video above, it’s that Tebow looks like he’s been hitting the weight room hard. That’s something that coach Urban Meyer also hinted at last week while raving about Tebow’s workout.

Tebow’s signing comes after the Jags weren’t able to add a big time receiving threat at tight end this offseason. However, they were able to add to solid blocking tight ends in Chris Manhertz and Luke Farrell.

It’s likely going to be a difficult task for Tebow to make the team in his return as he’s never played tight end in the NFL. Additionally, he’s now 33 and is approximately six years removed from football although he was playing in the minor leagues from 2016-21. Still, it’s a difficult challenge Tebow said he’s embracing and one that could be an interesting story if the Jacksonville native looks decent at his new position.
