Tim Tebow’s NFL comeback is the biggest story in the league.
But not everyone is happy about it.
And one ESPN host is going to hate admitting this truth about Tim Tebow.
ESPN First Take host Stephen A. Smith has been highly critical of the Jacksonville Jaguars for signing Tim Tebow to a league minimum contract, and allowing him to try and make the team as a backup tight end.
Smith ripped the Jaguars signing Tebow as “white privilege in action” because Tebow was asked to change positions in order to win a chance to make the roster while no one will sign anti-American quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
In reality, the Jaguars signed Tebow because his former college coach Urban Meyer is now the headman for the Jaguars and Meyer believes Tebow can positively affect the team’s culture.
But there is another side to bringing in Tebow.
Tebow is just good for business.

The sports media is even more far-left than the political media.
When Tim Tebow burst on the scene in 2011, leading the Denver Broncos to the playoffs and a Wildcard Round win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, many left-wing sports journalists resented Tebow because of his Evangelical faith and the large following Tebow built up in the Christian community.
That resentment still burns bright ten years later as evidenced by Stephen A. Smith’s continual hating on Tebow’s comeback attempt.
