He is risen: Eagles bring Tim Tebow in for a workout


Chip Kelly continues to collect running backs at a dizzying pace.

Wait, what?

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Eagles coach Chip Kelly has just turned his own personal don’t-give-a-damn meter to 11, bringing quarterback Tim Tebow in for a workout.

He’s just messing with us at this point.

The idea of Tebow and Mark Sanchez together again is almost too perfect to put into words. Kelly carries himself with a smartest-guy-in-the-room vibe anyway, but bringing in a guy the rest of the NFL had given up on speaks to a bit of hubris.

Could Tebow run the Eagles’ system, considering his roots running a spread offense at Florida? Sure. Maybe. Who knows?

But the rest of the league hasn’t saw fit to see for themselves, which might be the real reason Kelly did this.
