Urban Meyer gave his old quarterback and close friend Tim Tebow an opportunity to prove he could play tight end in the NFL, but it did not work out. The Jacksonville Jaguars released Tebow on Tuesday, and Meyer later spoke with reporters about the move.

Meyer said releasing Tebow was “the right thing” but insisted the former Florida star was well-liked in the locker room. He also gave an honest response when asked if this means Tebow’s NFL career is officially over.
