Talk about a surprise in the NFL. Chip Kelly is at it again. Today, reports have surfaced that the Philadelphia Eagles and Tim Tebow have agreed to terms adding to the quarterback controversy in Philly.
According to ESPN,
Tebow is scheduled to arrive in Philadelphia in time to be in attendance for the start of the Eagles off-season program Monday.
Philadelphia has finalized an agreement with the 27-year-old Tebow, the framework of which was put into place when he worked out for the team last month.
Before signing Tebow, the Eagles first wanted to try to trade backup quarterback Matt Barkley. But when the team could not get enough in return, it decided to bring in Tebow anyway so that he could be present for the team’s entire off-season program.
Tebow now will join a crowded Eagles’ quarterback roster that includes Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Barkley, giving Philadelphia three former first-round picks at the quarterback position in addition to another decorated college player. And it also will reunite Tebow and Sanchez, who were teammates with the New York Jets.
I personally believe Tebow could be a great addition to the Eagles offense. With the right weapons around him, Tebow can be a leader in the Eagles locker room and run Chip Kelly’s high tempo offense. As we get closer to the 2015 NFL draft, stay tuned to HHS1987 for all your sports news.
