For Tim Tebow to succeed at QB with #Eagles, Chip Kelly's will have to commit to playing the only way Tebow can. Not conventional NFL O.

Sheridan: Tebow will have chance

ESPN Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan writes: "Kelly's football team is a meritocracy. The best player at each position will be on the field. All Kelly is really doing right now is giving Tebow a chance to prove himself better than Bradford and Sanchez -- better, at least, in Kelly's spread offense." Move more about Kelly?

Tebow was a fantastic college player. His lack of success in the NFL shouldn't diminish that. Glad he's getting another shot.

'Not a Tim Tebow type of QB team'
NFL 

Back in 2011, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said of his then-Oregon offense: "I look for a quarterback who can run and not a running back who can throw. I want a quarterback who can beat you with his arm. We are not a Tim Tebow type of quarterback team." But are they now?

Tim Tebow will join an Eagles depth chart that's already loaded with former college stars who've had a mixed level of success in the NFL.

Crowded backfield in Philadelphia with so many QBs: • Sam Bradford • Mark Sanchez • Matt Barkley • Tim Tebow

Been a long time for Tebow
NFL 

Tim Tebow, who will reportedly sign with the Eagles tomorrow, hasn't thrown an NFL pass since Dec. 17, 2012 and last started a game on Jan. 14, 2012. He was in Patriots camp in 2013, but didn't play in the 2013 or 2014 seasons.
