Tebow and his wideouts work out in Jacksonville

Denver Broncos 2010 Headshots

The Jaguars passed on the chance to pick quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 draft, but that isn’t stopping Tebow from working in Jacksonville.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Tebow gathered a trio of his wideouts in Jacksonville to spend last week working out together.  Specifically, Tebow flew Brandon Lloyd, Jabar Gaffney, and Britt Davis to tow and put them up in a nearby hotel.

Eric Decker didn’t attend due to a prior commitment, and Demaryius Thomas (Achilles’ tendon) and Eddie Royal (hamstring) have lingering injury issues.

Tebow is expected to be the starting quarterback for the Broncos in 2011.  With the Jags taking Blaine Gabbert a year after they passed on Tebow, their respective careers will make for an interesting comparison.

    The blog is incomplete; Tebow, JESUS and some of the Bronco receivers worked out. I hear that Jesus dropped one though that his Him right in the numbers!

    Tebow and Gabbert both the best quarterbacks out of their respective classes. But it will be interesting to compare them.

    LOL @ both the article and purdueman
    First, “Tebow is expected to be the starting quarterback for the Broncos in 2011. ” By whom, might I ask? A bunch of Fl Gator fans? If anything, the Broncos management has given a very noncommital vote of no confidence in him.

    secondly, @purdueman, no need to bash him for his religious beliefs, thank you. The above being stated, must have been another qb throwing to hit anyone in the numbers. Tebow can barely hit the field with the ball, let alone anyone in the numbers.

    After some deliberation the Bronco receivers decided to take Tebow’s invitation over Kyle Orton’s offer of Greyhound tickets to Altoona, Iowa, and a stay at Mrs. Halberman’s Boarding House For Young Men.

    Tebow is SO much better than Bradford and you’re such a wit!

    sounds like an orton-free zone

    Denver will take two steps backs this tear. To let Orton slip into a backup role or not even on the roster is just sad. Orton will be a starter for someone in the NFL this year and will have a better overall areer as a QB than Tebow. Mark my words, tebow will be a decent H-back/tightend when his career ends.

    I like hearing about young quarterbacks stepping up and trying to get something done in the lockout.

    Let’s not just assume that Tebow is gonna be the starter. Sure Orton is no Manning, and he did fade down the stretch last year, but IMO it’s best for Tebow to sit for a year or 2 while we rebuild. Orton will keep the ship afloat until Tebow IS ready.

    Sorry Gator and Broncos fans. The Heisman Trophy is the death knell for QBs in the NFL. Name the last “Good” QB in the NFL who won the Heisman Trophy in the last 20 years or so.

    By whom? Bronco fans, that’s whom! No, old horseface (Elway), hasn’t given him any vote of confidence, but I’m sure realize that he’s a year or two away before he knows what he does or doesn’t have in Dr. Jesus (Tebow).

    Elway also realizes that Orton can’t stand Dr. Jesus and wants no part of mentoring him. That would point to Orton being traded (likely for either a #3 that’s a conditional #2 or a #2 if a team feels pressed), and an older veteran like Hasselback coming in for a last hurrah and to mentor young Dr. Jesus.

    As for Tebow’s religious beliefs? I wouldn’t care if he didn’t proselytize by incorporating Jesus in his interviews, but he will!

    tebow will be a half decent qb mark my words lol

    I don’t know who Britt Davis is but I keep hearing he’s at these workouts, good for him. Hope he makes the Broncos.

    easy – Sam Bradford

    tebow will be the gift that keeps on giving (to the broncos rivals in the west that is)

    he will set the organization back ..he’s not an nfl qback..im interested in seeing how long it will take the broncos fans to admit this once he actually gets a shot at starting..
    mcdaniels set this team back years..good coordinator,horrible coach and even more horrible personnel man…hillis,scheffler,cutler, and marshall

    marshall and lloyd could have been potent, with hillis in the backfield…

    False alarm! It was originally reported that Dr. Jesus (Tebow), asked Bronco’s receivers to voluntarily show up to go over the play book, but as it turns out it was to go over the good book instead.

    Tebow also was incorrectly reported to have “taken a knee” during the workout, when in fact he took two knees and then thanked Jesus Christ for the guys who bothered to show up!

    “The Jaguars passed on the chance to pick quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 draft,”

    You forgot to add, “Justifiably so”

    purdueman is clearly bitter that Orton (former qb at Purdue) appears to be headed out of Denver. I mean if you were a reciever, would you rather play with a great leader and the future of the franchise, or a bum like Kyle Orton and light up the stat sheet when your team is already down by 30 points.

  19. purdueman says: May 31, 2011 12:21 PM

    rons… you are WAY-YYYY off base! Why would I want Kyle to get stuck with a screwed up rebuilding organization like the Bronco’s? Are you kidding me?

    If I were Kyle, I’d also tell Dr. Jesus (Tebow), exactly where to shove his Bible too; no, I’m sure Kyle can’t wait to get the hell out of Denver and I sure hope that it happens before the next season opening game too!

    Kyle would be great in Arizona, Buffalo or Minnesota!

    The latest Bronco buzz is that Dr. Jesus (Tebow), peed his pants when he found out that the Bronco playbook had a play in it called the “Hail Mary!”

    Rumor has it that as soon as camps are allowed to open, he’s going to suggest that the Bronco’s replace the old “Statue of Liberty” play with a new one he’s drawn up called the “Twelve Apostles” play!!!

    Purdue? Aren’t they known for producing chickens and chickenspit? Oh and, Kyle Orton…same thing.

  22. purdueman says: Jun 1, 2011 3:41 PM

    Nope. Purdue DOES have one of the top ag universities in the country, with internationally renowned programs in turf, corn and soybeans (seriously; Purdue and their ag grads have patented over 180 genetically hybreds of both corn and soybeans).

    Glad to hear though that you’d apparently rather have Dr. Jesus (Tebow), over Kyle Orton! I’m hoping that Orton will be soon paroled (traded) from what’s become the 2nd worst run NFL team, right behind Cincinnati.
