Chip Kelly has shaken up the NFL with his free agent moves so far and that continues today. Despite recently trading for Sam Bradford and resigning Mark Sanchez, the Philadelphia Eagles are working out former Florida Gators Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow.

According to ESPN,

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is working out for the Philadelphia Eagles, a source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Monday.

Tebow, who has been an analyst for the SEC Network, last played for the New York Jets in 2012 after playing two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

He also was in training camp with the New England Patriots before he was released in August 2013. He struggled to find consistency with the Patriots, completing 11 of 30 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions in three preseason games.

“I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback,” Tebow wrote on Twitter after he was released by New England in 2013.

Tebow, who entered the NFL after a memorable college career that included two national championships at Florida, completed 47.9 percent (173 of 361) of his passes for 2,422 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions while rushing for 989 yards and 12 scores in his pro career.

The Eagles have already created plenty of speculation over their quarterback position this offseason, having tradedNick Foles to the St. Louis Rams to acquire Sam Bradford. The Eagles also re-signed Mark Sanchez to a two-year deal worth $16 million.

Tebow’s multiyear deal with the SEC Network doesn’t preclude him from continuing to pursue opportunities in the NFL.

Is this another genius move from Chip Kelly or our Eagles fans still wondering what’s going on. I think Tebow could be a promising backup in Philly. Stay tuned to HHS1987 for all your sports news.
