JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tim Tebow won't be playing for his hometown team.


The Jacksonville Jaguars made it clear Thursday that they have no plans to pursue the popular and polarizing New York Jets backup quarterback.


The Jets are likely to release the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and Jacksonville native during the offseason, and many believed Tebow would land with the Jaguars.


But new general manager David Caldwell nixed that idea at his introductory news conference.


I can't imagine a scenario in which he'll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he's released, Caldwell said.


And Caldwell won't get any pushback from his new owner.


Shad Khan, who made a run at Tebow last year, said it was Caldwell's call.


It's not my decision, Khan said. I want to do whatever to help this team win. Who the players are is really the general manager's and coaches' — it's a football-side operation decision. It's really not my decision.
