Booker told us he’s surprised Tebow is getting a shot with the Jacksonville Jaguars considering the size of tight ends in the NFL these days (Tim is only 6’3″ and 245 pounds, which is small for a TE).
But ultimately, he’s happy for Tim and wishes him the best.
There are a lot of people on social media who think it’s unfair Tebow is getting a second shot in the league while Colin Kaepernick still can’t get a legitimate workout for an NFL team.
“I don’t need to cast a shadow on Tim Tebow in order to point out the injustice of Colin Kaepernick,” Booker told us … “It’s wrong. He was blackballed and I don’t need to push someone else down in order to point that out.”
