Tim Tebow is still looking for an NFL team after being cut by the New England Patriots last summer.
He might want to look somewhere other than Philadelphia.
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had some harsh words for the former Heisman Trophy winner on Saturday when approached by TMZ.com.
“Tim Tebow? My son is two (years old). I’d take my son over Tim Tebow,” said McCoy.
It has been a rough few years for Tebow since the former Florida Gators star was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets in 2012. Tebow played sparingly in New York, completing a total of just six passes in 2012, and did not make it out of training camp with the Patriots in 2013.
Tebow has kept himself busy in other ways, recently signing on with ESPN to be a college football analyst for the newly formed SEC Network. Tebow was also offered a spot on a VH1 dance show, but he maintains that his focus is on returning to the NFL.
If he does return, Tebow will have McCoy and his young son to thank for the inspiration.
