If you’re a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars, there’s a great deal to be excited about – starting with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft – former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence – widely regarded as the best prospect at the position since Andrew Luck came out of Stanford nearly a decade ago.
Jacksonville also took Clemson running back Travis Etienne with its second first-round pick, and they also brought in savvy veterans like wide receivers Marvin Jones and Phillip Dorsett to help make things easier for their rookie quarterback.Jacksonville is also thrilled to have Urban Meyer take over as head coach.
But there’s one move that the Jaguars made that NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger can’t seem to wrap his head around. Jacksonville signed former Florida star Tim Tebow to a contract in late May, and he is attempting to make his return to the NFL after not playing in a regular-season game since the 2012 season with the New York Jets.
Baldinger, who is recognized for dissecting game films that he regularly posts to his social media accounts famously known as “Baldy’s Breakdowns”, believes Tebow is taking away reps from other young players who are trying to develop in the NFL.
“If you’re looking for some sort of PR-pop move, why? You have Urban Meyer and you got Trevor Lawrence. You have all the juice you need with the coach and the quarterback,” Baldinger explained to Fox News on Thursday. “You’re talking about a 30-plus-year-old athlete. He might be able to keep a spot on the roster, but to me, you’re stealing reps from somebody else that can develop. He’s a rep stealer if he stays.”
Baldinger is currently preparing for the upcoming NFL season as well as getting a jump start on his 2022 NFL Draft preparation. He is also working with CoachTube.com, a portal that provides coaching courses in sports.
He has several football coaching and evaluation videos on CoachTube, including an offensive line series with legendary coach Bob Wylie as well as several
positional breakdowns as part of his football coaching courses.
