Meyer, who’s entering his first season as the Jaguars head coach, brought in his former college quarterback on a one-year deal. However, Tebow remains a long-shot to make the final roster.
Still, Meyer has admitted that he’s been impressed by what he’s seen from Tebow so far.
“He keeps wanting to do this,” Meyer told reporters, per 247Sports. “He’s got good hands. The drill work is great. When you get in the competitive moment, just lack of experience, he wants to body the ball. And when you get into the point where two people are going after it, you’ve got to get the ball. So he’s fighting through that a little bit, but he’s got the skill set to catch the ball.”
Tebow has already provided Jaguars fans with a couple of big moments at practice.

Tebow at least looks the part physically, too. He’s always been very built and it looks like he might have put on even more muscle this offseason.
Tim Tebow is looking jacked 😳

The Jaguars will have to make a decision on Tebow at some point in the coming weeks.
