By Associated Press, Associated Press Jun 11, 2013 09:37 PM EDT
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed another former New England player.

The Jaguars were awarded quarterback Mike Kafka off waivers on Tuesday, the third New England player claimed by Jacksonville in the last four weeks.

.The team also picked up defensive tackles Kyle Love and Brandon Deaderick off waivers last month.

With rookie quarterback Jordan Rodgers recovering from sports hernia surgery, the Jaguars could use another arm for this week’s minicamp. Jacksonville has Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne and Matt Scott.

The Patriots waived Kafka on Monday, creating a roster spot for free agent Tim Tebow.

Kafka played in four games for Philadelphia in 2011, completing 11 of 16 passes for 107 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Jaguars waived tight end Matt Veldman to make room for Kafka.

    I don’t know anything about Mike Kafka, but this is what does make sense to me — THE JAGUARS WAS NOT THE PLACE FOR TIM TEBOW. I did not want to put any negative spin in cyberspace that might hurt Tim when he was looking to sign with a team — but I was always afraid the Jags would sign him and they would not be an environment in which he could thrive and then he really would be finished in the NFL.

    I personally felt the fans clamoring for the Jags to sign Tim were not being objective or wise and I say that not to dog anyone, but to encourage us all to consider the things that we said and thought relative to this whole matter over the weeks. I thought Tim would do well with Marc Trestman and the Bears, but believed strongly that he needed coaches that believed in his potential and would develop him, and only the better for him to be behind a great QB like Brady.

    Most seem happy with Tim signing with the Patriots; some are saying it is the best thing that could have happened to Tim. I BELIEVE THAT TIM ACTUALLY SOUGHT THIS POSITION AND THIS POSITION IN PARTICULAR IS WHAT HE MOST WANTED. This is exactly what Steve Young suggested to Tim, that he needed to sit behind a great QB and be a part of a team who believed in his potential and would develop him. I see Steve Young as a great supporter of Tim, yet he has acknowledged that Tim has needed to improve some things; THAT IS A TRUE FRIEND. With the Patriots, the fact that Belichick can handle the media so well is a bonus.

    So now we see, there was no NFL blackballing or conspiracy. Yes, there is some bias in the media against any conservative with influence, and yes, teams shied away from the headache of Tebowmania, but there was no Elway-Ryan-Goodell plot to keep Tim out of the league.

    I am the most ardent of Tebow fans, but I have a somewhat unique perspective in that mid-November 2012 when I first saw a couple of Tebow YouTube Videos I really knew nothing about Tim except that he was a Christian football player. When Rick Perry said he hoped to be the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses, I did not know what he meant. Until I “met” Tim, I was not a sports fan and during his 2011 run with the Broncos my husband was dying of emphysema and congestive heart failure and little else occupied my little corner of the world. So mid-November 2012, as a young widow who did not sleep much at night, I began listening and watching and reading hours of Tebow on and off the field. I feel like I truly know him, but it’s like I sat down and had a glass of cold spring water with Tim and listened without experiencing all the emotion of the years. Seeing the whole thing at once, including Tim’s voice in his book, I think gave me an objectivity that not all have and I have observed some interesting and some sad things… and these paragraphs are not meant to be a full report on that, nor are these thoughts pointed at any particular person or this site…

    But this is the thing, we are not God, and we judge wrongly. We forget that God uses bad things to work His perfect will for our good and for His glory. Had there been an NFL conspiracy God would have used it to get Tim to the exact place that He wanted him. The idea of Christians crying “persecution” and “bias” in a public forum was so sad to me and only embittered the unregenerate hearts of many “haters” against Tim and against biblical Christianity.

    When Tim cancelled with First Baptist, Dallas (probably at the behest of Bill Belichick to stay out of the media) I saw something in my fellow evangelicals I had never seen before. WE HAVE CONFUSED DEFENDING OUR AMERICAN FREEDOMS WITH DEFENDING THE GOSPEL… and they are not the same thing. That combined with a bit of a persecution complex has sometimes made us combative. We read in scripture that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, and yet we wage war as if certain people are our enemy.

    One way to evaluate the current state of America is that the Christians and the influence of Christianity has ceased to be the dominate voice and influence… and that is only because we are now outnumbered and that is because we have failed in the Great Commission. This is the thing, WE WILL NEVER WIN THOSE WE ARE FIGHTING, and we lose the war for the gospel and for our nation, if we fail in the Great Commission. Our first charge as believers in Jesus Christ is not to defend the Constitution of the U.S. but the Great Commission and nothing else.

    It has been my great privilege to befriend a few Tebow “haters,” and because I was willing to admit that Tim needed to improve his NFL game, they sometimes listened to me and discussion about football allowed me to use Tim’s life to point them to scripture and to Christ. But how much opportunity did we miss during these months?

    Tim is now in a place professionally where he can develop to his full NFL potential… but how many of his fans would have chosen a place for him where he has absolutely no opportunity to be a starting QB this year or next… not many… some wanted to boycott the NFL and support the A-11 league and all the rest in an effort to get what they wanted for Tim.

    Tim has set himself up as an example, and that put a bull’s eye on his back. But the real reason for the “haters” is because Tim is faithful to his Savior and he actually is an example we all can follow and thus he has influence and is a threat to the progressive agenda. THE OPPOSITION AGAINST TIM IS ACTUALLY, WHAT EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD EXPERIENCE IN THIS WORLD. TIM’S GREATEST MESSAGE TO ME PERSONALLY IS THAT EVEN I, JUST ONE PERSON, CAN MAKE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE. But truly being salt and light in a world dying in sin brings opposition and at some point it may bring us real persecution. I believe Tim handles that opposition very biblically… Tim truly trusts God with his future… he is not fighting against people… and today I am encouraging us each one to consider how Tim has responded to all that has transpired and examine our own hearts, actions, and reactions to see if we have been equally biblical. May we be found faithful!

    Lynn Burgess –

    MY point to MAKE is THE SATANIC ORIGIN OF THIS HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST TEBOW – IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS FOOTBALL SKILLS !

    Thus the RESULTANT – previous recommended campaign to Boycott the NFL until this obvious “Black-Balling of Tim Tebow was ceased !

    I Believe, as CHRISTIANS – We are NOT called to FEAR But to Faith → We are called to fight the GOOD FIGHT, as soldiers of Christ (NOT as POWS), NOT TO surrender to or ignore the forces of Evil, but to RESIST.

    1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
    1Pe 5:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

    Eph_6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

    I do not believe we are Called to Be: “Secret Service Christians” But are called to be Bold for Christ and in
    DEFENCE of The Brethren!

    Mat_10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
    Mat_10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    I guess we will just have to agree to disagree…. WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS – THE BATTLE IS NOW !! → and TIM TEBOW
    IS ON THE FRONT LINES …. AND NEEDS THE HELP OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, his fellow Soldiers, SATAN IS THE GREAT DECEIVER – GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF THIS CONFUSION !

    And in regard to our ruling Authority – Check out the link below ..
    This Ruling Authority to us is our God – Given US Constitution: Affirmed by God’s message to USA and our President – at his Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, which was brought through God’s Messengar – Pastor and Rabbi – Jonathan Cahn – also best selling author of
    The Harbinger, book. (THIS EVENT WAS CENSORED BY OUR LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA – of course).
    We are called to Faith and Stewardship, in defence of our Brethren – and to Publically Renounce Satan and his cohorts NOT to ignore or surrender to their lies..

    This is different from the response of the the persecuted victim, of which Tim was and still is as you even now listen to to ranting and raving of his HATERs.. as their agenda has turned on them.

    HERE IT IS ! THE GREAT 39 MINUTE VIDEO of God’s Warning Message of JUDGEMENT → to America on Video !

    CHECK IT OUT – IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS, NOR DO I BELIEVE, does REPRESENTS GOOD STEWARDSHIP – again I will have to agree to disagree with the ignoring of and surrendering to Evil against our Christian brethren viewpoint… God Bless
