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.

I'm sure everybody would be very polite to and supportive of Tim Tebow in Philadelphia.— Fake Ryan Pace (@FakePaceGM) March 16, 2015
Bradford. Sanchez. Tebow.— Larry Beyince (@DragonflyJonez) March 16, 2015
That is all. I…… I don't…… I dont have anything to really say.
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:
Unfortunately for Twitter, the Eagles are reportedly not planning on signing him at this time.
Tebow era in Philadelphia slightly shorter than the Gore era.— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) March 16, 2015
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.
