Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was on a Jacksonville radio station Monday morning. In his interview with WJXL’s David Lamm, Tebow had some interesting things to say about possibly playing in Jacksonville, about Urban Meyer and what his favorite NFL team was growing up.
On whether he would like to play with the hometown Jaguars: “I would. It’s here at home and I would enjoy that. I have been a Jaguar fan my whole life. I have enjoyed being here in my hometown and watching the Jaguars play, and getting an opportunity to play for them would be a blessing for me and a privilege for me to be able to stay in my hometown and play here.”
On Meyer’s leave of absence: “He needs to keep resting and being with his family. He’s enjoying it. He’s had a little time to get away. And we’re still talking pretty much every day. He’s doing great and feeling better. He’s going to get back and have a great season and Florida is going to dominate. They’re going to do great. I’m just happy that he’s feeling better and that he’s there for his family and that he’s been able to just relax and let his stress levels die down a little bit. He’ll absolutely be back and he’ll be involved. He’s going to be hands on working with the guys. He’ll be there for a lot of the stuff in the spring and in the summer. Florida should have a great year.”
On his favorite NFL team growing up: “My favorite team growing up was the Dallas Cowboys. I was a huge Emmitt Smith fan because he was a Gator and an awesome running back. So I was a huge Cowboy fan. After he left, it died down from there. I have only had three jerseys in my entire life: Emmitt Smith, Danny Wuerffel and Michael Jordan.”
