Eagles Workout Free Agent QB Tim Tebow
Tim Tebow hasn’t been seen remotely close to the NFL world since before the 2013 regular season. His long absence is finally over. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Tebow worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday afternoon.
Schefter immediately reported that the Eagles are “not planning” to sign Tebow just yet, although no details have been made available as to how Tebow fared in his workout with the team. Philly has been making many moves that some regard as questionable at best, so even the slightest interest in such a polarizing figure as Tebow would naturally raise quite a few eyebrows.
While the Eagles considering Tebow should spike debate, it doesn’t sound yet like the team is seriously considering bringing him aboard. Of course, that doesn’t mean they won’t. Philadelphia has already traded away Nick Foles and reportedly would be willing to part with third string passer Matt Barkley for a late round draft pick.
Should Barkley skip town somehow, the Eagles would be down to just Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez, and could be on the search for another quarterback to replace Barkley. Many still feel that Bradford is just a trading piece to help land top prospect Marcus Mariota, while Tebow would hypothetically be an interesting prospect in Chip Kelly’s up tempo, spread out system.
There is also a chance that the Eagles are merely doing Tebow and his camp a solid. Tebow flamed out of the league with the New York Jets during a forgettable 2012 campaign, and couldn’t crack the New England Patriots roster during the preseason in 2013. After two years on the sidelines, Tebow could just be looking to create some buzz and get his name back in the mix. Tebow could also end up showing his face at the NFL veteran’s combine later this month.
Whether or not the Eagles and Tebow are headed for a partnership remains to be determined. However, it seems Tebow isn’t yet done with his NFL career yet, or at least plans to continue to pursue it for the immediate future.
