Chip Kelly’s Crazy Offseason Gets Even Nuttier As Philadelphia Eagles Sign Tim Tebow


Chip Kelly’s Crazy Offseason Gets Even Nuttier As Philadelphia Eagles Sign Tim Tebow

Several sources are reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have reached a deal with former Denver Broncos quarterback and current ESPN analyst Tim Tebow. The former Heisman Trophy winner worked out for the team last month and the two parties apparently agreed on the framework of a deal at that time. Tebow is flying into Philadelphia to sign the new contract Monday so he can be part of the team’s offseason workout program.

The 27-year-old QB hasn’t played a snap in the NFL since 2012 and the last time he was on a roster was when the New England Patriots cut him at the end of training camp in 2013. He was the talk of the nation for a while in late 2011 and early 2012 when he was installed as the Broncos starting quarterback, leading them to a division crown and a playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. During that time, ESPN became Tebow TV, as nearly all of the Worldwide Leaders coverage centered on the devout Christian.

With Tebow in the fold, the Eagles now have four quarterbacks under contract. Head coach and acting general manager Chip Kelly traded for oft-injured Sam Bradford last month, giving up last year’s starter Nick Foles and a conditional 2nd-round pick to the St. Louis Rams. The Eagles also have Tebow’s former teammate with the New York Jets, Marck Sanchez, under contract as well as Matt Barkley. It appears Philly was trying to trade Barkley over the past few weeks to free up space for Tebow but didn’t like any of the offers.

Obviously, once news of Tebow’s signing hit, Twitter went bonkers.

 

 

And, of course, Tebow’s forever champion had to chime in with a hot take.

 

Kelly has already had a crazy offseason, with trading away LeSean McCoy, bringing in Bradford and signing DeMarco Murray and Ryan Matthews. He now is basically telling the city of Philadelphia and anyone who covers the NFL that he simply doesn’t care what anyone thinks, he’s doing things his way.

    Chip Kelly is the head coach … allow him the players who is wants … allow him to trade and or cut who he wants … I am very sure if Tebow does not work out that Coach Kelly will have no trouble cutting him … what do they have to loose in the off season .. and then again who do they have that is a number one GB on their roster … not saying Tebow is … but who knows .. it can be fun …
