Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow recently worked out with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a tight end, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Tebow had reached out to the team and requested a tryout. Switching to tight end, according to some, might have extended his NFL career.

Sources said that the team has not made a decision regarding Tebow.

Tebow, 33, hasn’t played in the league since 2012 with the Jets. He appeared in 12 games, making two starts at QB.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner played three seasons in the NFL, two with Denver. His best season was in 2011, when he played in 14 games, going 7-4 in 11 starts to lead the Broncos to the playoffs. He was a dual threat, rushing for 660 yards that season.
