Tim Tebow is back in the NFL, thanks to Chip Kelly. The quarterback-turned-analyst had been out of the game for a year, but has signed a 1-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. This reunites Tebow with former Jets teammate Mark Sanchez and former college teammate/roommate, Riley Cooper. It still remains to be seen if Tebow is being brought in to play quarterback or fullback.
Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Eagles on Monday, according to three people familiar with the deal. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because the contract hasn’t been finalized.
Tebow hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012 with the New York Jets. He was released by the New England Patriots before the 2013 season and spent last year working in television as an analyst for the SEC Network and ESPN.
