Economists like to point out that voluntary trades are generally “wealth-maximizing”, since contracting parties are made better off when they trade with each other. So why don’t the Jackonsville Jaguars sign Tim Tebow? Tebow, after all, really wants to play in the NFL, while the Jaguars really need a decent quarterback. As things stand now, the Jags are probably one of the worst teams in the NFL this season (and last season too–their record was an abysmal 2-14 last year). So here’s a thought: now that angry-bird Bill Belichick unmercifully cut Tim Tebow from the New England Patriots’ 53-man roster, why won’t the Jaguars at least consider signing Tebow for the 2013-14 season? After all, what would Jacksonville have to lose by signing Tebow as their starting or back-up QB? The way prior probability sees it, the Jags can’t get any worse with Tebow on their roster, so there is no down side to signing Tebow, but they would generate a lot of goodwill and national publicity for their team by signing Tebow. What do you think?
