Tebow to Philly?

No, it hasn’t happened – yet.  Tim Tebow was released yesterday by the New York Jets.  Apparently they would prefer this guy over a yet-to-be-doomed play-caller.  Let’s look at why Chip should look at signing Tim Tebow, because I think it has real potential.

I’m not saying Tebow is going to start for Philadelphia – even for a game – but what quarterbacks do Chip have about whom he can truly say, “He’s my guy?”  No one.

Chip drafting Barkley shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Nick Foles looked promising last year as a rookie, and judging from post-game interviews against Arizona while coaching at Oregon, Chip has a soft spot for him.  Vick is obviously the QB that all of the “knowledgeable” analysts are dubbing the starter, even though we all know Chip wants a passer first.  Dixon poses and interesting option, but he has very little experience despite his years in the NFL, and Chip might want a more youthful player with a higher ceiling.  Throw in the first pick in the fourth round from USC, Matt Barkley, and the QB race is wide open.

Realistically, Chip won’t take a chance on Tebow for cap, and potential reasons.  But if you can sign him for a reasonable amount of money, and you have the space, you have no reason not to take a chance.  Chip is one of the best play-designers in the football world and I venture to guess he could utilize Tebow better than any coach in the NFL.

    The Eagles already have 5 QB’s on the roster, and all of them are better than Tebow. They aren’t going to pick up a 6th QB.

    The Eagles have a better chance of signing Justin Roper than Tim Tebow.
