Persistent pro quarterback wannabe Tim Tebow was expected to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, but sources said the contract was still being finalized over the weekend.
Three people familiar with the deal spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Sunday. Tebow had worked out with the Philadelphia Eagles on March 16 but left the training facility without a contract.
Tebow hasn't played in the NFL since 2012 with the New York Jets. He was released by the New England Patriots before the 2013 season. He spent the past year as a college football analyst for ESPN's SEC Network but has repeatedly expressed interest of playing again in the NFL
The former Heisman Trophy winner was a first-round pick by Denver in 2010. He started 14 games for the Broncos and led them to a playoff victory in the 2011 season.
Tebow joins quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley on Philadelphia's roster. The addition of Tebow would be the latest move in a stunning offseason for coach Chip Kelly. He traded Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and allowed Jeremy Maclin to leave in free agency.
