As if there weren’t already enough rumors swirling this afternoon, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport dropped a bombshell report involving Tim Tebow.
Rapoport is reporting that Tebow recently worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’s no longer being listed as a quarterback though, as the former Heisman Trophy winner has made the switch over to tight end.
Yes, you read that correctly. Tebow worked out for the Jaguars as a tight end. Nothing is official yet, but the two sides have discussed a potential deal.
This would be somewhat of a reunion for Tebow, who would once again join forces with Urban Meyer.
Of course, the latest Tebow news has sent shockwaves through the rest of the league. Even NFL reporter Kimberly Jones couldn’t believe Rapoport’s report, responding “Wait…what?”
Here are some of the best reactions to today’s Tebow news:

Tebow, a former first-round pick, never really found his footing as an NFL quarterback. In 35 games, he completed 47.9 percent of his passes for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
For years, NFL fans were begging Tebow to change his position. Instead, the Florida legend decided to pursue a professional baseball career.
With that chapter of his life already over, Tebow is finally willing to give tight end a shot. Though he still has ways to go before he’s back on an NFL roster, this situation will be one to monitor this offseason.
