Mark Sanchez said the Eagles signed Tim Tebow as a camp arm while Sam Bradford recovers from his knee injury.
"He's obviously a great guy, he works hard. And we needed another guy to throw while Sam's still recovering," Sanchez said. It is always exciting when the Sanchez-Tebow circus comes to town. Of course, if the Eagles really just wanted a guy to throw while Bradford was sidelined, they would have signed someone who could actually throw. Tebow's chances of making the final roster are slim, but he would not be on the roster if coach Chip Kelly thought he was nothing more than a camp arm. Apr 25 - 12:07 PM

Personnel executive Ed Marynowitz confirmed the Eagles see Tim Tebow as a quarterback only.

As expected, there's been chatter Chip Kelly will find a role for Tebow as a short-yardage back, tight end or H-back. But he will compete as a quarterback, where the No. 3 job behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez is unsettled. "We brought Tim in for a workout and obviously we were intrigued with what we saw there," Marynowtiz said. "He had improved since the last time we saw him here, which was with New England." Online sportsbook Bovada has installed Tebow as -200 favorite to get cut before Week 1.

Tim Tebow's one-year contract with the Eagles is worth $660,000 and contains zero guaranteed money.

It's the bare minimum. The Philadelphia Inquirer has characterized Tebow's chances of landing a 53-man roster spot as "long," and Tebow's contract supports that. At best, he'll be the No. 3 behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.

The Philadelphia Inquirer considers Tim Tebow's chances of making the Eagles' final roster "long."

Back in April of 2013, coach Chip Kelly said "repetitive accuracy" is the "No. 1 quality" he's looking for in a quarterback. While at Oregon in 2011, Kelly said, "I look for a quarterback who can run and not a running back who can throw. ... We are not a Tim Tebow type of quarterback team." Chip has clearly come around a bit on Tebow, who was added Sunday as a quarterback. But the fact remains this is a street free agent who hasn't played since 2012 and comes in as the No. 5 player at a position the Eagles will keep three. Tebow has an uphill battle on his hands to prove he has value.

Eagles agreed to terms with QB Tim Tebow on a one-year contract.

Although the move will generate countless headlines, Tebow is a flier signing as the Eagles begin their offseason program. Sam Bradford is the penciled-in starter with Mark Sanchez backing him up, and G.J. Kinne and Matt Barkley likely vying with Tebow to be third string. The Eagles have tried trading Barkley, but found no takers. Tebow has not played in the NFL since 2012. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Patriots, completing 11-of-30 passes for 145 yards (4.8 YPA), two touchdowns, and two interceptions, taking seven sacks among 37 dropbacks. He did rush 16 times for 91 yards (5.7 YPC). Tebow turns 28 in August.

Eagles football czar Chip Kelly says the team was just doing its "homework" with last week's workout of Tim Tebow.

"I've always been a fan of Tim. We bring in a lot of players for private workouts, it's just he's the one that everyone keeps talking about," Kelly said. Reports had suggested Tebow could end up in Philly if the team moved No. 3 quarterback Matt Barkley, but it doesn't appear likely at this time. More than likely, Tebow will spend 2015 working for the SEC Network.

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports there's an "80 percent chance" the Eagles will sign free agent Tim Tebow if they can trade Matt Barkley.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen has reported the Eagles are trying to trade Barkley for a "late" pick, something Russini confirms. If football czar Chip Kelly has serious eyes for Tebow, it's unclear why he wouldn't just release Barkley and his $592,500 salary. He must genuinely believe there's a market for Barkley's services. We find it rather hard to believe. There will undoubtedly be more Tebow updates as the week rolls on.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are "not planning to sign" free agent Tim Tebow after working him out on Monday.

It's possible the Eagles were just doing Tebow and/or his agent a favor by putting him back on the NFL's radar. The odds remain long that Tebow will resurface on an NFL roster this season, or at any point in the future.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent QB Tim Tebow is working out for the Eagles on Monday.

Chip Kelly has apparently decided he wasn't already enough of an iconoclast. Essentially banished from the NFL because of his inaccurate passes and unrelenting media frenzy, Tebow has been an ESPN employee since December 2013. In theory, he'd provide the dual-threat element Kelly's offense has mostly lacked since he arrived in the NFL, but Tebow has no semblance of the "repetitive accuracy" Kelly is known to seek. Kelly has become impossible to nail down, but we'd be surprised if he added Tebow to his 90-man roster.

Saskatchewan Roughriders assistant GM Jeremy O'Day believes free agent Tim Tebow "would struggle" in the CFL.

Tebow has never expressed interest in the CFL, but others have suggested he'd be a good fit. Those people don't know anything about the CFL, which is even more pass-oriented than the NFL. "One of his major downfalls is accuracy," said O’Day. "I think he would struggle." Tebow, 27 in August, still hasn't given up on his NFL dream. He's currently working as an ESPN college football analyst.

Free agent Tim Tebow "still has hopes" of returning to the NFL.

"I'm training every day and feel like I'm the best that I've ever been," Tebow said. "I still love it, love playing, talking about it, and I'm just excited about whatever the future holds." Tebow's future is with ESPN's SEC Network, which is launching in August. Even if teams thought Tebow could improve their roster, he's unlikely to ever be signed again because of the media circus that always accompanies.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told CBS Sports that ESPN analyst Tim Tebow is still "hoping" for one last shot in the NFL.

Meyer, of course, coached Tebow at Florida. "Works every day. He's hoping," Meyer said of Tebow. "There are some conversations about it. I don't know too much. There's hope and he says there's stuff going on." Tebow accepted a position with ESPN's SEC Network last December. He turns 27 this August.

Ex-Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said the Tim Tebow trade was his biggest mistake in New York.

"Obviously we made a couple mistakes –- trading for Tim Tebow most notably," Tannenbaum told CBS Radio. It's hard to argue with Tannenbaum, who now works for NFL Network and Yahoo! Sports and also has dipped his toes in the agency business. The other colossal blunder from Tannenbaum was handing Mark Sanchez a five-year, $58.25 million extension in the same offseason.

Former NFL QB Tim Tebow has accepted a job with ESPN for its SEC Network.

The SEC Network launches in August. Tebow hasn't given up his NFL quarterbacking dream, but teams around the league have. "I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity," Tebow tweeted Monday. "When I was six years old I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be a part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC."

Free agent Tim Tebow has been offered a four-month, $200,000 contract by the Milano Seamen of the Italian federation for American football.

"The offer has been made to his agent and now we're waiting for a response," Seamen president Marco Mutti said. "We would be more than happy to have him." The chances of Tebow accepting the offer are around zero. Tebow has said numerous times that he's only interested in playing football in the NFL.
