The Jacksonville Jaguars hired David Caldwell as the team’s general manager in recent days, and he took little time to fire head coach Mike Malarkey. Perhaps Mr.Caldwell should pay attention to some league rules before speaking about players that are under contract with other teams.
Tim Tebow has been rumored to be on the radar of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but coaches are not allowed to speak about players that are currently under contract in the NFL. Coaches and personnel are not allowed to speak about players that are currently under contract.
I’m surprised that Mike Florio at PFT.com didn’t pick up on this legal tidbit, being an attorney. According to his PFT.com site, Caldwell responded this afternoon,” I can’t imagine a scenario where he’d be a Jacksonville Jaguar.” After all, he wrote this article I linked to.
During an interview with Mike and Mike yesterday morning, Andy Reid claimed he was unable to speak about the future of Michael Vick because he was still under contract with the Eagles. So, exactly how is David Caldwell able to make comments about Tim Tebow while he is still under contract with the New York Jets?
This announcement by the new general manager of the Jaguars now throws serious wrenches into the future career of Tim Tebow. It was speculated that it would be a foregone conclusion that Jacksonville would acquire the hometown boy and move forward. The hiring of David Caldwell is changing the Jaguars landscape.
