Sylvester Stallone: Eagles ‘Blew It’ When They Cut Tim Tebow (Video)

Sylvester Stallone is a believer. In Tim Tebow, that is.

TMZ caught up with the Hollywood actor this week and asked what he — as a Philadelphia icon, largely because of his role in the “Rocky” movies — thought of the Eagles cutting quarterback Tim Tebow. Stallone had stated his love and support of Tebow earlier last month to TMZ.

“I feel like he’s an underdog — like he’s like Rocky,” Stallone began. “How can you not feel sympathy for this guy? It’s terrible.

“I think he’s a late bloomer and everyone blew it. It’s a mistake.”

Stallone later added that Tebow should “come to Hollywood.” If Ronda Rousey can make an appearance on the big screen in “The Expendables 3,” should anyone really rule out Tebow for a potential “The Expendables 4”?
