Khan satisfied with Tebow outcome

Tebow runs with the ball for Denver, is now a Jet

The Jaguars were given a second chance to land Tim Tebow in a trade from the Denver Broncos, after the Jets initial trade hit a contractual snag. However, the Jaguars, once again, failed to complete a deal for Tebow. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Tebow was given the final choice between the Jaguars and the Jets and he chose the Jets.

In light of this Jaguars owner Shad Khan said he was satisfied with the outcome of the trade.

“Earlier this week, I asked Gene Smith and his staff to explore the potential of acquiring Tim Tebow. I think we have a duty to consider all avenues of improving the Jaguars on and off the field, especially given the unique circumstances involving the player. Khan said. “I appreciate the high level of due diligence Gene and his staff dedicated to this matter, even as late as this evening, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. Our commitment to developing Blaine Gabbert was, and still is, central to our goal of returning the Jaguars to elite status in the NFL. We’re looking ahead with zero regrets.”

Khans words might seem like a generic statement from a team who failed to land their man, but in essence they are completely true. The Jaguars ownership wanted Tebow; they tried to get Tebow; and Tebow chose the Jets. The Jaguars did all they could, and can now move on from the Tebow circus and continue their focus developing a winning football team to fill the stands.

From a football standpoint this was the best possible outcome for Jacksonville.

Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne you can breathe again.
