Tim Tebow surprises everyone by making a comeback to the NFL after the quarterback agreed on a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL reported on Sunday.
Terms of the contract are under wrap but the 27-year-old Tebow is expected to join a large group of quarterbacks competing for openings on the Philadelphia roster.
Tebow has been employed as a television analyst since his last NFL game in 2012 but worked out with the Eagles last month and appears to have made a good impression.
Tebow’s signing is another of the curious, news-making moves made this off-season by Kelly, including letting go of the team’s starting quarterback, best running back and best receiver
The quarterback, beset by problems with his passing consistency, appeared to have fallen out of favor when he was cut by the New England Patriots following pre-season training in 2013.
However, Eagles coach Chip Kelly has been busy in the off-season after Philadelphia missed out on the playoffs despite compiling a 10-6 record and Tebow is on line to become the latest name on a long list of signings to a revamped squad.
It has been a roller coaster off-season for Eagles fans, and the fun, and perhaps nausea, may continue.
