PHILADELPHIA (TheBlaze/AP) -- Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday. But Schefter then reported a couple hours later that the team had no plans to sign Tebow after the workout.
Tim Tebow has come and gone from Philadelphia. Team is not planning to sign him at this time. We'll see if anything changes.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2015
The last regular season game Tebow played in was back in 2012 while he was still with the New York Jets. His career came screeching to a halt in August 2013 when he was released by the New England Patriots after a very brief stint with the team for training camp.
After he was cut, Tebow vowed to “remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback.”
Tebow, winner of the 2007 Heisman Trophy, has been working in television as an analyst for the SEC Network and ESPN.
One of the most successful college quarterbacks at Florida, Tebow started 14 games for Denver over two years after being selected in the first round of the 2010 draft. He won one playoff game with the Broncos, who traded him for fourth-round pick when they signed Peyton Manning.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly has already made some big moves this offseason. He recently traded starting quarterback Nick Foles to St. Louis for Sam Bradford. His other quarterback is Mark Sanchez, who was the starter for the Jets when Tebow was there. That was a highly uncomfortable situation for Sanchez.
Kelly's remake of the Eagles' roster has included trading star running back LeSean McCoy to Buffalo, then signing Offensive Player of the Year DeMarco Murray to replace him. Clearly, Kelly - who took over personnel duties after last season - is unafraid to look anywhere for possible upgrades.
But, for now, it's not Tebow.
