Tim Tebow has NFL experience, but at least one writer doesn’t think he’ll play with the Philadelphia Eagles any time soon.

The Philadelphia Eagles gave a workout to Tim Tebow, presumably because Coach Chip Kelly’s testing to make sure we’re all still paying attention, wrote Bloomberg News writer Kavitha Davidson.

“It’s been a wild off-season for the Eagles, who traded away stud running back LeSean McCoy, sent oft-injured quarterback Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for perpetually injured quarterback Sam Bradford, and then made a big splash by signing running back DeMarco Murray from the Dallas Cowboys,” wrote Davidson. “ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday on Philadelphia’s interest in Tebow, setting Twitter on fire and leaving the rest of us to ponder just what Kelly’s thinking.

“To be sure, it’s still unlikely you’ll see Tebow in an NFL uniform any time soon, even though he reportedly has learned how to throw a football and apparently his contract with SEC Network ‘doesn’t preclude him from continuing to pursue opportunities’ in the league. (Not like the college football and pro football seasons overlap or anything.)

“The Eagles already have four quarterbacks signed: Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. Yet despite Kelly’s denials, some coaches think Bradford might be trade bait in an effort to trade up and draft Marcus Mariota, and the prospect of Tebow reuniting with former New York Jets teammate Sanchez is compelling and amusing. It’s kind of fun to wonder if the fan base that famously booed Santa would also boo Jesus.”

    I have been watching the Tebow to Philly reports and can’t decide what to think. Kelly has made some interesting moves. He either has a master plan or is semi-crazy. I am surprised that absolutely no leaks have come out about how Tim did at the workout. He didn’t get signed so people are assuming he did not do well. I think he probably did very good and is going to get signed. Sanchez or Bradford is going to be used to trade up in the draft. I saw a video today that supposedly was filmed yesterday or today of Tebow throwing at USC. He looked very good. His release is short and quick and he was putting the ball on target. If that is what the Eagles saw he will be signed.

      Do you have the link to that video? I would love to watch it! Thanks for telling us about it.

      I too am out to lunch about Chip Kelley, I just hope no news is good news. Also, if the sports media seen Tim have a bad workout it would be all over social media, I truly believe someone would have leaked it. I think Tim had a great workout, possibly other teams may be working him out too. Fingers crossed.

    I saw it at https://t.co/xUu0SMdr3t. It is also on the Tim Tebow Fan Forum in the Eagles category. It is short but you can see him throw. He is throwing to Austin Pettis and a couple other guys. It also appears to be Tom House with him. This is the first clear view of him throwing I have seen in the last year. I’d be shocked if nobody signs him.
