JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Tim Tebow won't be playing for his hometown team.
The Jacksonville Jaguars made it clear Thursday that they have no plans to pursue the popular and polarizing New York Jets backup quarterback.
The Jets are likely to release the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and Jacksonville native during the offseason, and many believed Tebow would land with the Jaguars. ESPN quoted a source who said it was a ``virtual certainty'' that Tebow would play in Jacksonville in 2013.
But new general manager David Caldwell nixed that idea at his introductory news conference, saying, ``I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar - even if he's released.''
Owner Shad Khan asked former GM Gene Smith to acquire Tebow last March, but the left-hander chose the Jets.
