Report: Tim Tebow works out with Eagles, not likely to sign

The quarterback carousel continues to turn. After a couple of days with all things quiet, the Eagles stirred things up again on Monday.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Eagles held a workout for quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow has not played in the NFL since 2012 when he was a member of the New York Jets.

Tebow completed his workout and left Philadelphia, and according to Schefter, the Eagles have no plans to extend a contract to Tebow at this time. 

Tebow has former teammates in Riley Cooper – Florida – and Mark Sanchez – Jets – currently on the Eagles, but his place in the NFL had taken a back seat to what appeared to be a new career path for the former college standout. Tebow was an analyst on the SEC Network for the 2014 college season.

Drafted 25th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, Tebow eventually emerged as the team's starter during a playoff run in 2011 that saw him complete a 80-yard touchdown pass in overtime to give the Broncos a win in the Wildcard round against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 2012, Tebow spent a majority on his only season with the Jets as a back-up. When he joined the New England Patriots in 2013, he played a similar role behind Tom Brady, never taking a snap in New England.

Tebow threw 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions, completing 173 passes for 2,422 yards and posting an 8-6 record in 34 games and 14 starts. He has a 1-1 playoff record with both games coming as a member of the Denver Broncos.
