Trevor Lawrence shares candid response to having Tim Tebow on roster
One of the more talked about stories of the offseason has been Jacksonville signing former Florida QB Tim Tebow to its roster ahead of offseason workouts. The other new face is, of course, No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence.
The dynamic between the two, who are expected to take on leadership roles with the Jaguars, will be a topic of discussion as long as Tebow is on the roster. Lawrence shared his thoughts on Tebow during an interview on the NFL Network.
“I’ve had a few good conversations with him and I’m really excited to play with him,” Lawrence said. “I don’t know if you’re going to find a better guy to have in your locker room, and he’s in great shape, he looks great, he’s been out there practicing with us the last two days and Thursday of last week. Three practices in, he looks great, he’s running around well. Picking it up quick, I think mentally, he’s in a great spot, being a quarterback and playing in the NFL for a number of years, he kind of gets the NFL offense, pro-style offense systems, he kind of picks them up easily so he’s coming along great. And I think just everyone’s excited to have him in the locker room, seeing what he’s been able to do, the ultimate competitor he is and his character, that’s just a guy you want on your team for one, and a guy you want to be around.”
