BlueInCanada Posted April 19, 2015 Share Posted April 19, 2015 Sorry Tebow I mean, but close enough. Tim Tebow to sign with Philadelphia Eagles64 By Kevin Patra Around the NFL writer Published: April 19, 2015 at 06:57 p.m. Updated: April 19, 2015 at 07:26 p.m. 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. Around The NFL's Roster Reset Roster Reset: Division-by-division breakdown NFC East: Are Eagles back on top? NFC North: What now for Lions? NFC West: Are Niners in the cellar? NFC South: Saints, Falcons ready to re-emerge AFC East: Can anyone catch the Pats? AFC South: Who can challenge the Colts? AFC North: Division remains a dogfight AFC West: Broncos still class of division? Who has the best roster in the NFC? Patriots, Colts remain AFC heavyweights 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. Seriously doe when a fat fuck like Jarmarcus Russel or whatever his name was, gets taken first over all but a guy like Tebow who from what I've read about the guy has worked harder than anyone to become a better QB has been out of the league for the last couple of years. Have to wonder why teams were hesitant to sign him other than the college frenzy fanbase that follows everything he does. But signing a murderer or dog killer is good publicity apparently.
