(SportsNetwork.com) – The Philadelphia Eagles have made some unexpected
Another one is apparently on the horizon.
According to FoxSports.com, the Eagles plan to sign quarterback Tim Tebow on
Monday as they begin their offseason program. The former Heisman Trophy winner
worked out for the team last month.
Tebow, who has been working for ESPN and as an analyst for the SEC Network,
played two seasons for the Denver Broncos from 2010-11 and last appeared in
the NFL for the Jets in 2012.
He joined the New England Patriots in June 2013 but was cut two months later
before the start of the regular season.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly has made sweeping changes to the roster this
offseason. Gone are quarterback Nick Foles and running back LeSean McCoy,
replaced by Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray.
Tebow would become one of five quarterbacks on the Eagles’ roster, joining
Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. Sanchez and Tebow were
teammates on the Jets in 2012.
Tebow has started 16 games in his career, throwing 17 touchdown passes and
nine interceptions. He also has 989 yards rushing with 12 touchdowns.
