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.

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a "rumor making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings" of the Eagles trading Sam Bradford to the Browns for the No. 19 overall pick in the draft.

The Browns already offered No. 19 to the Rams for Bradford, prior to his trade to Philadelphia. St. Louis didn't accept because it wanted a quarterback, and wound up acquiring Nick Foles. The Browns are "still said to have interest" in Bradford. Per Eckel, the rumor has the Eagles then sending Nos. 19 and 20 -- plus Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox -- to the Titans in exchange for No. 2 overall, where Philly would select Marcus Mariota. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday that Bradford currently believes the Eagles may be planning to trade him.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski believes Eagles DE Vinny Curry could be had via trade.

Curry, the 59th pick in the 2012 draft, is an imperfect fit in the Eagles' 3-4 scheme after being drafted as a pure 4-3 end by the Andy Reid regime. He played 397 snaps last season in sub-packages, receiving positive marks for his pass-rush push. Curry managed 34 combined pressures. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Curry could probably be had for a mid-to-late-rounder.

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.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk the Eagles have engaged in "no meaningful talks" regarding Sam Bradford's contract.

Bradford, of course, is entering a contract year. At very least, it suggests the Eagles want to keep their options open at quarterback. ESPN's Adam Schefter and CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora have both recently stated they believe the Eagles remain in the hunt for Marcus Mariota. A source told PFT that Bradford would be unwilling to do an extension with a team other than Philadelphia, were he used as a trade chip. He is willing to sign long term with the Eagles.

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's Jeff McLane doesn't think CB Brandon Boykin would net the Eagles anything more than a fourth-round pick in a trade.

McLane goes on to say he doesn't believe the Eagles have any plans to move Boykin. A slot corner-only, Boykin has long expressed his desire to play on the outside. He just doesn't fit the profile for coach Chip Kelly, who prefers longer, rangier corners on the perimeter. Byron Maxwell will man one of those spots with Walter Thurmond likely having the early leg up on the opposite side.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, ILB Mychal Kendricks will join the Eagles' offseason workouts soon.

Kendricks had a planned vacation in Costa Rica. It's a bit curious he scheduled the trip for the first week of the offseason, but the workouts are "voluntary." Kendricks remains a name to watch on draft day as a very talented inside linebacker who may be on the trade block. He's heading into the final year of his rookie deal.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks was a no-show for the first day of voluntary offseason workouts Monday.

While these workouts are "voluntary" in nature, players are expected to attend. Kendricks has been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks after the Eagles extended DeMeco Ryans' contract and acquired Kiko Alonso from the Bills in exchange for LeSean McCoy. Kendricks is entering the final year of his rookie deal and may be holding out in the hopes of a trade or long-term contract.

Eagles QB G.J. Kinne will spend time at receiver and returner in the offseason program.

Signed to a reserve/future contract after Week 17, Kinne has made zero regular season appearances. He's currently the Eagles' No. 4 quarterback, only ahead of Tim Tebow.

Eagles LG Evan Mathis was not present for Monday's start of spring workouts.

A year ago, Mathis showed up for voluntary workouts despite trade rumors. Now he's staying away with trade/release rumors swirling again. Chip Kelly's distaste for Mathis remains a bit confusing, as he's been one of the best guards in the league over the last two years. "I'm in Antarctica looking for frozen dinosaurs to extract their DNA and splice them with my chihuahuasaur," Mathis joked when reached by beat writer Jeff McLane Monday. Money is at the root of the issue here, as the 33-year-old wants a raise on his scheduled $5.5 million base salary.

Matt Barkley's grip on the No. 3 quarterback job is not secure.

The Eagles wasted the No. 98 overall pick in 2013 on Barkley, who has no value whatsoever on the trade market. He's going to have to fight off G.J. Kinne and Tim Tebow for his job this offseason. The Dolphins reportedly preferred a flier on Josh Freeman over Barkley.
Apr 20 - 8:44 AM

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.

Zach Ertz spent two weeks this offseason working with former Cowboys OL coach Hudson Houck on his blocking.

Houck is one of the greatest offensive line coaches in NFL history. Ertz has also spent time on strength training and mixed martial arts. After he only played 50.3 percent of the Eagles' offensive snaps last season, the Philly Inquirer believes there's "ample" reason to believe Ertz will truly break out as a third-year tight end. Between Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy, the Eagles have 180 targets to replace.

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.
