JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are back in the middle of Tim Tebow talks again.
Though this time, they say the reports are not true.
A local television station reported that the Jaguars and the New York Jets were talking about a trade involving the popular quarterback.
The report by Action News in Jacksonville sounded plausible since the Jaguars tried to acquire Tebow in March. But Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says there’s no truth to the report of ongoing talks between the Jets and the Jaguars.
Mularkey said Wednesday there are no discussions ”that I am aware of.”
Tebow, the former Florida Gators star, has completed 2 of 3 passes for 32 yards with the Jets as Mark Sanchez’s backup this season. Tebow also has eight carries for 23 yards.
