Jacksonville Jaguars fans held a rally on September 16 in an attempt to have management sign quarterback Tim Tebow.

Jacksonville Jaguars fans held a rally on September 16 for Tim Tebow

According to ESPN, the rally was held at the parking lot of EverBank field and began at approximately 3:16 p.m.ET. They want the team to sign Tebow, a Jacksonville native who attended and won the Heisman Trophy at the University of Florida. 

The rally was intended to last three hours and 16 minutes. Together with the starting time of 3:16 p.m., they are references to John 3:16 -- a bible verse which Tebow had on his eye black during the 2009 BCS title game.

Jaguars fan and event organizer James Stewart, 56, said there were around 20 rallyists and 30 media members present. He wasn't too optimistic about Jacksonville's chances this season. Signing Tebow ought to improve its chances.

"The Jaguars' season is really in the tank. They don't have a lot of promise. There's not a lot to watch. We're consumers and the Jaguars are a product, and there's a lot of room for improvement. Tebow we think would be value added if he were to be signed and given an opportunity at quarterback.

"It's the perfect time in our view to do a Tebow experiment. Whether you like him or not, I think everyone would watch. It would be compelling." 

Prior to the rally, the organizers established a Facebook page and a website asking everyone in the community to wear t-shirts and hats to make the drive for Tebow more visible.

After Tebow was released by the New England Patriots on August 31, he reportedly turned down offers from the Canadian Football League (CFL) and USA Rugby. He made it clear via Twitter he will pursue his dream of becoming a bona fide NFL quarterback.   

The Jaguars are currently 0-2 after falling to the Oakland Raiders 19-9 on the road. No other NFL team has expressed any interest in signing Tebow since he was cut by New England.
