08:06 AM ET 03.27 | In the end, Shad Khan was just as serious about wanting Tim Tebow as he was in letting him go. If Tim Tebow didn't want to come to Jacksonville, sending a third-round pick to the Denver Broncos, a move that likely would have resulted in the Broncos taking the decision out of Tebow's hands, would have been counterproductive. "That would have been the worst thing for Jacksonville and the worst thing for him," [Khan] told the Times-Union at the NFL's annual league meetings. "He didn't want to come, obviously. ... Any one of the 53 players we have, have to be committed to Jacksonville, making us be the best team we are. The question was: Did he want to come?"

"Did he want to come?"

Obviously... no.


I guess he didn't want to play in L.A.

Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

Tim needs to get frequent flier miles, then those moves from Denver to Jax to LAX will really start to add up. You know, in case that passing half-back thing doesn't pan out.

Obviously not...

The Blaine Gabbert Era continues. Sorry, Jacksonville.

Well played. I was gonna Photoshop up a pic of Kirk shouting it in the movie, but that would be too similar to actual work.

<shakes fist at spinny thingy...>

What spin is this? Just say we were not willing to use a third round pick to get him. What logic is this? If we were the high bidder then we would own him so we did not make ourselves the high bidder. Huh?

The one QB in the NFL Tebow may be better than. Go figure.

Because Jacksonville can't sell Tebow the way New York can. TEBOWMANIA and LINSANITY....can't stand any of 'em.

They did sign Chad Henne to compete with Gabbert. Sorry, Jacksonville...

A couple more out there that you're missing. Tavaris Jackson, Colt McCoy and, pretty soon, Mark Sanchez! Lol

When the GM says publicly that I don't want Tebow here, what do you expect him to do??? He would have loved to go home and play in front of thousands of Gator fans who adore him, but I agree it was not a good idea. Unfortunately, Tebow could have saved the Jacksonville Jaguars but now look out Los Angeles.....here comes the Jags!!!!

Maybe. It is a not the list you want to be on.
Honestly, Sanchez is way above those other names. He is really not much different than Flacco. If he was the Ravens QB he would do as well , or better, than Flacco.

Looks to me like Kahn dodged a bullet from his own gun.

Yeah. The good news is we found another QB to compete with Gabbert. The bad news is it's Chad Henne. Maybe they can push each other so at least one rises to the level of mediocrity.

I think that's the idea as well up in NY with Sanchez and Tebow.

This is just an owner attempting to appease a fan base that can't understand why they wouldn't trade a third round pick for a local hero. At the end of the day it is pretty clear that the coaching staff did not want tebow or they would have told the owner they thought he was worth a 3rd round pick. Owner would have obviously loved the fact that he would sell out 8 home games a year for the foreseable future

I'd want Tebow on my team if we needed a good tight end.
