Tim Tebow Signing: Philadelphia Eagles to sign former first round quarterback

New, comments

It looks like Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow will be teammates once again.

For the New York Giants' NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles, this offseason has been dominated by a single overriding question:

"What is Chip thinking!?"

Well, a report came across the twitterverse Sunday evening that has everybody asking a new question:

"WHATCHA GONNA DO? WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN TEBOWMANIA RUNS WILD ON THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE, BROTHER!?"

Twitter was all a dither with news of Tim Tebow's workout for the Eagles last month, however Tebow left Philly without a contract. However, there was also the news that a contract could be coming in the future.

It seems the future is here

So while this news isn't exactly surprising, it is still certainly eyebrow raising.

What could this mean for the Eagles? Well, it could mean several things.

  1. Kelly is seriously looking for a deal to trade up for Marcus Mariota and is looking for another mobile quarterback to either run his offense while Mariota acclimates to the NFL, or back Mariota up.
  2. The Eagle's warp-speed offense is going to push the innovation envelope even further by running another play while Tebow releases the ball, effectively doubling their play speed.
  3. Chip Kelly wants to add another piece to his collection of disappointing first round quarterbacks to go with Mark Sanchez and Sam Bradford
  4. Or, there is the less humorous, and more realistic, option that Kelly recognizes Tebow's considerable character, leadership, and competitive drive and hopes those attributes would galvanize his team.
Whatever Kelly is really thinking, and what it could mean -- if anything -- for the dynamics of the NFC East, I think we can all agree that Chip has kept things interesting in 2015.
