Tebow, a former quarterback with the Florida Gators and Denver Broncos, would become a tight end for the Jags.

“Deal that could be official in the next week or so,” the tweet said. “Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.”

Tebow won the Heisman Trophy at Florida and was a first-round pick of the Broncos in 2010.

Most recently, Tebow played professional baseball in the New York Mets farm system.
