Looks Like Tebow Has Managed To Become Relevant Again

Tim Tebow's workout with the Philadelphia Eagles last month will lead to another chance for the quarterback.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the Eagles are planning to bring in Tebow on Monday and sign him as they begin their offseason program. FOX Sports' Jay Glazer first reported the news.

Tebow will join an Eagles' quarterback room that includes Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne.

Coach Chip Kelly told NFL Media's Steve Wyche last month that he's "always been a fan of Tim." Now the coach will get a longer, closer look at the quarterback.

Tebow hasn't thrown a touchdown pass since 2011, when he led the Denver Broncos to a playoff victory. The 27-year-old spent 2012 with the New York Jets in a disastrous pairing with Sanchez, who was Gang Green's starting signal caller at the time. Tebow spent training camp with the New England Patriots in 2013.

The quarterback spent last fall working as a football analyst for ESPN's SEC Network, but he never gave up on getting another chance at the NFL.

The Boston Globe reported that Tebow spent the past two years working with Tom House, Tom Brady's personal quarterback coach. Per House, Tebow "went from being a little inaccurate and didn't throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball."

With Bradford still rehabbing from another ACL tear, the Eagles signing Tebow could be merely a move to add a fourth quarterback arm for offseason work. From there it's Tebow's job to display his improvements as a passer and leapfrog the other signal-callers on the roster.

As this entire offseason has displayed, only Chip Kelly knows his true plans.

I really wish this guy would change positions. I think he would provide to be much more useful at FB or something like that.

And on a side note Skip Bayless is going to need a fresh pair of underpants laugh.png

Signed doesn't mean he made the team. I'm not a Tebow hater, but I look for him to be cut. JMO

TEBOW TIME

2 years is a long time to improve for tebow, plus he is going to be in a spread offense. This is probably going to be his best chance. No QB ahead of him has really panned out. Bradford is the favorite, but is injury prone and has not consistently shown to be that great.
