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

Tim Tebow worked out with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, but the team will not sign him, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter first reported Tebow's workout, which the Eagles later confirmed to the Philadelphia Daily News' Les Bowen.

Tebow, 28 in August, last played in the NFL in 2012 as a member of the New York Jets. That season, he appeared in 12 games (two starts) and went 6-of-8 for 39 yards. He also rushed 32 times for 102 yards.

[]Tebow signed with the New England Patriots in June 2013 but was released two months later.

Though Tebow has begun a broadcasting career with ESPN, SEC Network and ABC's Good Morning America, he reportedly maintained hopes of resuming his NFL career. Earlier this month, a report from The Boston Globe indicated Tebow was considering participating in the NFL's veteran combine on March 22. The report said Tebow has worked out "diligently" with renowned quarterback coach Tom House in Los Angeles over the last two years.

The Eagles have been busy this offseason, most noticeably trading away running back LeSean McCoy, signing former Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray and sending quarterback Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for quarterback Sam Bradford.

The Eagles also re-signed quarterback Mark Sanchez, who spent 2014 with the team after five years with the New York Jets, where he was Tebow's teammate in 2012.
