It looks like ‘Tebowing’ will be returning to the National Football League (NFL).
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, devout Christian quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles after arriving in the City of Brotherly Love Monday, ending a two season hiatus from the NFL. Tebow is set to join the team for offseason workouts.
The quarterback last played a game in the NFL with the New York Jets, backing up Mark Sanchez in 2012–who he will rejoin in Philadelphia. He played the previous two seasons for the Denver Broncos, where he was drafted 25th overall in 2010, reaching the AFC championship in 2011. The devout Christian will not only rejoin Sanchez, but former roommate Riley Cooper.
In 2013, he was invited to training camp with the New England Patriots but was cut from the roster by Head Coach Bill Belichick before the start of the season. He has been working as an analyst for the SEC Network (a subsidiary of ESPN) since 2014, and as a commentator for ABC’s Good Morning America.
Prior to being drafted by the Broncos, Tebow captured two NCAA National Championships and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 with the University of Florida.
As The Washington Post notes, this would add Tebow to a depth chart which includes Sam Bradford (who was acquired last month with the St. Louis Rams in a deal for Nick Foles), Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley, and G.J. Kinne.
Many have already taken to Twitter to laud the Christian athlete for his return to professional football:
