Tim Tebow’s invitation to the Tight Finish Summit was not misplaced within the mail.
49ers Professional Bowl tight-end George Kittle can lastly maintain his long-awaited tight-end summit this summer time, internet hosting a tight-end-only occasion alongside lately retired Greg Olsen and Chiefs go catcher Travis Kelce – but it surely does is an fascinating omission from the group.
Tim Tebow, who’s returning to the sector as a decent finish for the Jaguars, might most likely use the invitation greater than a slew of tight ends touring to camp.
Kittle supplied a good rationalization as to why Tebow did not obtain an invite on a current episode of the “Pardon My Take” podcast:
So nothing in opposition to Tim Tebow, however I discovered it onerous to ask – I want all one of the best for Tim Tebow and hope he has a unbelievable season with tight finish – but it surely’s onerous for me to not invite a backup tight finish, say just like the New York Giants as an alternative of inviting a man who simply began taking part in the tight finish place as a result of we’ve restricted seats. I want I might make each NFL tight finish can come [so] it’s accessible to everybody. However what we tried this 12 months we needed to pay for all of the tight ends that make it a particular occasion for all tight ends.
There isn’t a assure Tebow will be a part of the Jaguars’ 53-man roster, though Jacksonville’s head coach City Meyer Tebow is seemingly giving each alternative to get into the roster.
“If he is on a squad this 12 months and he is taking part in a decent finish, we would like to have him, we would like to work with him,” added Olsen. “As quickly as he is formally an in depth finish, we would like to work with him.”
The occasion – aptly known as the “Tight Finish College Summit” – takes place in Nashville, Tennessee, with invites to tight ends throughout the league. There have been not less than 50 committs to date, together with TJ Hockenson, Zach Ertz, and Kyle Pitts.
Kittle says he rented a complete lodge for tight quarters and that the rooms are absolutely booked.
Possibly Tebow can seize the highlights on YouTube.
