That sentiment is resonating throughout the organization.
On Saturday, TMZ caught up with Jags tight end Marcedes Lewis, who’s looking to avoid Tebowmania at all costs. When asked if he wants Tebow on the team, Lewis answered honestly: “No.”
“I’m going into my eighth year, I’ve had about four or five different quarterbacks,” Lewis said. “Obviously, in the state we were in last year, we need a guy that’s going to put us over the hump right now. Not a project.”
Jacksonville won just two games in 2012, and Lewis is a talented player on an otherwise talentless offense, especially at the QB position.
Even so, Tebow doesn’t appear to be the answer.
“Not taking anything away from Tebow,” Lewis added. “But we need a pure quarterback.”
The search continues.
