Heisman Trophy winner anytime soon, according to ESPN.

appeared in the NFL for the Jets in 2012.
He joined the New England Patriots in June 2013 but was cut two months later

Kelly and the Eagles have been busy re-working a roster that seems to change

the roster. Sanchez and Tebow were teammates on the Jets in 2012.
Even the mention of Tebow’s name elicits strong opinions, so news that he
worked out for the Eagles caused a stir on social media Monday afternoon.
