Tim Tebow works out for Eagles, leaves without signing
Monday March 16th, 2015

Tim Tebow is dipping his toe back in the NFL waters with a workout for Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles, and in his time away from football he has not lost any of his ability to stir up a big reaction from the public.

Not everyone was mocking the idea, as Tebowmania still lives in the veins of many Americans.

One writer may have jokingly predicted this whole thing last week:

DeMaurice Smith re-elected as executive director of NFLPA

Unfortunately for Twitter, the Eagles are reportedly not planning on signing him at this time. 

Obviously working out for a team and actually getting signed are miles apart, but the Twitter explosion shows that Tebow fever may have fallen dormant for a while, but it can be re-triggered by even a small dose of Tebow.
