Tim Tebow got his first taste of live-game action at tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars over the weekend.
The former Heisman Trophy winner turned minor league baseball player is trying to make a return to the NFL at a position he’s never played before, and things aren’t going too well.
Tebow initially went viral over the weekend for a block during the game. While that block was less than impressive, he at least got the job done. In a new video, Tebow completely whiffs and gets his running back lit up. Rightfully, the internet is having a field day roasting Tebow for his performance.
Honestly, the Tebow block that went viral wasn't even his worst block of the night. This was *the very next play* pic.twitter.com/tINWyJpWSE

“Is it possible we found something he does worse than throw a football?”, one Twitter user joked.
Former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz added, “Looks like a 34 yr old who’s never had to block. And before y’all come to cape for Tebow. When the Jags signed a minor league baseball player who’s a former QB who hasn’t played in a game since 2012 to the roster to play TE… this is the scrutiny he will get.”
At this point, if Tebow does make the Jaguars’ 53-man roster, he has nothing more than his relationship with Urban Meyer to thank because his performance on the field leaves a lot to be desired.
