Jaguars claim quarterback Mike Kafka

By Eric Kay | CBSSports.com Staff

Is this the right time to use the word "irony"?

Tim Tebow was, in the minds of many, supposed to land in Jacksonville.

He ended up signing with the Patriots.

The Patriots cut Mike Kafka to make room for Tim Tebow.

Now Mike Kafka is heading to Jacksonville to play for the Jaguars.

As told to us by his agent:

Our long national nightmare is finally over. This marks the fourth former Patriots player to be acquired by the Jaguars in recent weeks. Kafka joins Kyle Love, Brandon Deaderick and Jeremy Ebert on Team Teal.

Also of note, the Cowboys reportedly put a claim in for Kafka's services as well. A ringing endorsement of the former Northwestern star, for sure.

We leave you with this quote from the philosopher-author-thinker Franz Kafka:

"If I shall exist eternally, how shall I exist tomorrow?"

The correct answer, at least now, is "as a Jaguar backup quarterback."

Godspeed, Kafka.
