The Philadelphia Eagles’ crazy offseason just keeps getting, well, crazier.
On Sunday, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported that the Eagles will sign Tim Tebow on Monday, a month after he was brought in for a workout with the team. For the Eagles, like the Cowboys, Monday marks the beginning of the offseason program.
Tebow spent the past two seasons out of football, working for ESPN as a college football analyst, but never made any secret of his desire to return to the NFL.
The 25th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Tebow started three games in his rookie season. His best year came in 2011, when he started 11 games, threw for 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and led the Broncos to the Divisional Round of the playoffs before they were eliminated in a drubbing by the Patriots.
After the Broncos acquired Peyton Manning the following offseason, they traded Tebow to the Jets, where he spent a strange and terrible 2012 season. He appeared in 12 games and started two that year, but attempted just eight passes and 32 rushes.
Tebow’s last shot in the NFL--before Chip Kelly came calling, that is--came in 2013, when he spent the offseason with the New England Patriots, but found himself among the Pats’ final cuts after training camp.
With the Eagles, Tebow joins a stable of quarterbacks that includes his old Jets teammate Mark Sanchez, Sam Bradford, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne.
