     ESPN's Adam Schefter and Fox Sports' Jay Glazer both reported earlier today that former Florida Gators and Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has reached an agreement on a new deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
     With Tebow in the fold, the Eagles now have four quarterbacks on their roster, consisting of Tebow, newly acquired Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, and Matt Barkley.
     The last time that Tebow played in the NFL was back in August 2013 when he was released by the New England Patriots. He completed just 11 of 30 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns, compared to two interceptions, in three preseason games. Since then, he has worked as a football analyst for ESPN and ESPN's SEC Network for college football games.
     In his professional career, Tebow is best known for leading the Denver Broncos to the second round of the playoffs back in 2011 after the team began the season with a 1-4 record before he was inserted as the starter.

     He completed just 173 of 361 passes in his career for 2,422 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to nine interceptions. He has also rushed for 989 yards and 12 touchdowns. But due to his potential ability as a dual threat quarterback, Tebow could possibly fit in with Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's high octane offense.
     The signing of Tebow continues a very active offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles, which includes trading running back Lesean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles, releasing wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and acquiring Bradford and running back Demarco Murray.


Will Tim Tebow make the Philadelphia Eagles' regular season roster?
Will he resurrect his career in Philadelphia? And is Chip Kelly a genius or in over his head?
