Citing a team source, NFL Network's Albert Breer denied a report that the Jets and Jaguars are discussing a deal to send Tim Tebow back to his hometown.

The Tebow trade rumors began swirling late Tuesday night when Jacksonville's Action News reporter Steve Wrigley posted a story that said "the Jaguars are making a play to trade for Tim Tebow before the trade deadline."

But Breer reported early Wednesday that the two teams have not discussed a trade involving Tebow.
