Tim Tebow has officially signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a tight end, ESPN reports.

We previously reported this would likely happen a couple of weeks ago, and now the reunion between the former Florida Gators QB and head coach Urban Meyer is official.

The quarterback-turned baseball player-turned tight end is the 6th TE on the Jags roster.

Tebow will be on the field Thursday for the team's offseason program as he sets out to compete for a roster spot, a source told ESPN.
