Tim Tebow Gets Another Chance, Signs with Philadelphia Eagles

Will Chip Kelly have the magic touch with the ex-Florida quarterback?

Tim Tebow will receive at least one more shot at an NFL career after signing a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

 

The 2007 Heisman winner and two-time national champion at Florida participated in an offseason workout for Philadelphia on Monday.

 

The signing of Tebow, who hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2012, is the latest in a number of high-profile unorthodox moves by Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

Tebow was a first-round NFL draft pick of the Denver Broncos in 2010 and went 7-4 as a starter in 2011, leading the Broncos to a playoff win in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Broncos traded Tebow to the New York Jets in 2012 where he played sparingly. He signed with the Patriots in 2013 but did not make the regular season roster.

 

Tebow is 8-6 as a starter in his career and has completed 47.9 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions, all with Denver.

 

Since he was cut by the Patriots, Tebow had been an analyst for the SEC Network.
