With Tim Tebow making an NFL return with the Jacksonville Jaguars (this time at tight end) after being away from the league for roughly a decade, it has spurred other retired players to consider doing the same thing. The latest one is former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.

He took to Twitter to announce his intentions to not only come back, but come back as a defensive end, not a running back. Aiming to switch positions just as Tebow is.

While others have said this mostly in jest, Jacobs seems to be serious about it. He pled his case on the athleticism and desire he still very much possesses, even at the age of 38 and roughly eight years after he retired in 2013.

It seems like a long shot that Jacobs is contacted or brought in by an NFL team, especially considering the unique circumstances in which Tebow landed on the Jags. And even he is considered to have a slim chance of making the Jags' final roster.
