Report: Advisors for Tim Tebow privately believe NFL career is finished

Tebow

Here we are knocking on the door of June and former Heisman-winning quarterback Tim Tebow is still without an NFL job. Tebow was let go by the New York Jets earlier this offseason and has yet to find another NFL team willing to give him a shot.

Now, it appears as though members of his own advising team are privately admitting that his run in the NFL is probably over. This is according to ESPN the Magazine's David Fleming.

“He’s not a quarterback,” the scout said. “When you look at his run two years ago, when you watch the tape and break it down, he wasn’t really doing anything that impressive. He’s a tough guy, a great leader, a great person. But he isn’t a good enough quarterback to have all the distractions that come with him.”

According to the report, NFL teams have concern over Tebow because he has a hard time remembering plays, he struggled to read opposing defenses, he was flagged for too many delay of game penalties, and didn't have the self-awareness to know what he needed to work on to improve those aforementioned issues.

Tebow's career completion rate of 47.9 percent isn't a good indicator, either.

But the good thing for Tebow is that he does have at least one high profile supporter still in his corner. This supporter is none other than the legendary Chuck Norris, who wrote a glowing piece last week urging Jacksonville Jaguars ownership to ink Tebow to a contract.
