The Philadelphia Eagles officially win most bizarre offseason.
The Eagles are working out former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow on Monday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, citing a source. Tebow most recently has been keeping himself busy serving as an analyst for the SEC network, but he has remained adamant about continuing to pursue his NFL career.
The former Heisman Trophy winner hasn’t been on an NFL regular season roster since 2012 when he suited up for the New York Jets in a limited role after playing two seasons with the Denver Broncos. Tebow also participated in training camp with the New England Patriots in 2013 but was cut by the team before the start of the season.
Chip Kelly and Co. raised some eyebrows last week when they traded quarterback Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for Sam Bradford. The Eagles also re-signed Mark Sanchez to a two-year deal recently, paving the way for a potential reunion for the former Jets teammates.
The 27-year-old Tebow has started 16 games in his pro career, throwing 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He’s also rushed for 989 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.
