When I first read it, instinctively I thought Tebow wished he was back at the University of Florida.
Things are a little tougher in the NFL than the SEC, but if Tebow is lucky he will get his wish to be back in the Sunshine State.
That’s the word from Monica Culpepper, wife of former NFL and Florida Gators player Brad Culpepper, who’s a friend of Tebow’s. Monica Culpepper relayed her conversation with Tebow to 970-WFLA.
“Brad and I just had dinner with Tim last week and I don’t think this comes as a shock or surprise to him that Manning was actually going to go there,” she said. “And in all honesty, Tim said, ‘I miss home. I miss the South. And hopefully I’ll land somewhere in Florida.’ I sure hope Jacksonville takes him because he’s such a great kid, such a good player and would be so thrilled to come back to the South.”
In a perfect world Tebow would get cut and then he can play whereever he wants, but the Broncos will trade him so they get something in return for the first round pick they spent on him.
It is still likely he ends up with Jacksonville or Miami, but not a guarantee.
