Jaguars signed TE Tim Tebow to a one-year contract.


The deal isn't 'official' just yet but will be in the next week or so. Tebow, 33, hasn't played in a regular-season game in nine years and will be attempting to change positions once he does make it to camp. It's another wacky (albeit fun) move that brings Meyer's tenure into question after the organization also added a first-round running back and drafted multiple injured players. There is no competition among Jacksonville's tight ends if Tebow does somehow sneak onto the 53-man roster.

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said QB Jordan Love has "a long way to go" in his development.

Packers officials have made no secret of their desire to retain Aaron Rodgers for at least the next season instead of turning to Love, 22, who has yet to play an NFL snap. Drafting Love in the first round of the 2020 draft proved a gaping wound in the team's relationship with their mercurial quarterback -- one that has festered for a year. Rodgers reportedly wants out of Green Bay, with the Broncos exploring trade possibilities for the 37 year old. “He’s got a long way to go,” Gutekunst said of Love. “But we’re ecstatic for his development. ... Obviously we think the world of Jordan and where he’s going to grow and develop." Love could be forced into reps should Rodgers hold out of the team's offseason activities or training camp. Love threw 52 touchdowns in his final two seasons as Utah State, completing 61 percent of his throws. He has a rushing component to his game: Love rushed 81 times (for a meager 175 yards) in his final collegiate season. Love displayed decent athleticism at the 2020 NFL Combine. He had a 76th percentile 40 yard dash and an 88th percentile burst score (along with a 37th percentile throw velocity). At best, Love would be a desperation late-round option in superflex and 2-QB fantasy formats if Rodgers were to depart Green Bay. SOURCE: The Athletic May 10, 2021, 10:23 AM ET
