JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars owner Shad Kahn went on the record late Wednesday night about not acquiring Tebow after it become clear the snags with the Jets had been worked out.
"Earlier this week I asked (GM) Gene Smith and his staff to explore the potential of acquiring Tim Tebow. I think we have a duty to consider all avenues of improving the Jaguars on and off the field, especially given the unique circumstances involving the player," said Kahn.
Kahn said he appreciated the "high level of due diligence Gene and his staff dedicated to this matter, even as late as this evening, and I am very satisfied with the outcome."
Now that Tebow's future is settled with the Jets, Kahn said it's time to focus on Jaguars Quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
"Our commitment to developing Blaine Gabbert was, and still is, central to our goal of returning the Jaguars to elite status in the NFL. We're looking ahead with zero regrets," said Kahn.
