Former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tim Tebow has weighed in on the team’s struggles early in the 2021 regular season.
The Urban Meyer era is not off to a great start in Jacksonville. The Jaguars are 0-2 on the season, getting blown out by Houston in Week 1 and falling to Denver in Week 2.
Tebow, of course, was part of the Jaguars’ team this offseason. He signed as a tight end, but got released during the preseason.
The former Florida Gators star weighed in on the Jaguars’ early struggles.
“I just think that they have to stay the course and continue to work to improve,” Tebow said Thursday in an interview for next week’s AP Pro Football Podcast. “I think there’s a lot of talent there and they just have to continue to try to get better. And every week, I think Trevor’s got so much talent and ability and I think he’s a great young man and I think he’s going to be just fine.”
Tebow added that he was appreciative of the chance in Jacksonville.
“It was a lot of fun, a blessing to have the chance to do it and go pursue that and really enjoyed all of it. … enjoying the competition, the grind, the highs, the lows of all of it,” Tebow said. “When you can look at everything as an opportunity to improve, to grow, that it molds you, I think you’re always trying to figure out things even in the good, the bad, how you can get better from it, how you can use it, how God can use it in your own life and continue to grow and improve.”
The Jaguars will look to win their first game of the season on Sunday.
Jacksonville is set to play Arizona at 1 p.m. E.T.
