Veteran NFL wide receiver Dez Bryant isn’t taking the Tim Tebow news well.
On Monday afternoon it was revealed that Tebow was being signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars to play tight end despite not having played in the NFL since 2012.
The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.

Bryant, who is currently struggling to find himself on a roster next season, reacted negatively to the news of Tebow’s signing.
So Tebow haven’t played an NFL game in damn near a decade and it’s that simple…no hate but you got to be kidding me

Bryant says he’s not angry at Tebow himself but at the politics behind his signing.
