Draft Scout Tim Tebow News
04/20/15 - QB Tim Tebow was signed by the Eagles to a one-year contract Monday (April 20), more than two years removed from his last NFL action.
The Eagles made it official after news broke Sunday evening of the agreement.
Tebow, 27, worked out for the Eagles on March 16 and was scheduled to participate in Philadelphia's offseason workouts, which began Monday.
Tebow will join an Eagles' quarterback group that includes Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne.
Since last appearing in a game for the New York Jets in 2012, Tebow joined ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network in 2014, where he primarily worked on "SEC Nation."
Originally a first-round draft choice (25th overall) of the Denver Broncos in 2010, the 6-foot-3, 236-pound Tebow has appeared in 35 games with 16 starts.
Tebow started three games for the Broncos as a rookie in 2010, throwing for 654 yards and five touchdowns, while also rushing for 227 yards and six touchdowns on 43 carries. His 82.1 passer rating was the highest of the eight rookie quarterbacks that started a game in 2010.
In 2011, Tebow tied for second among NFL quarterbacks with six game-winning drives and helped guide the Broncos to an AFC West title and the team's first playoff berth since 2005, including a postseason win. Tebow started the team's final 11 games, totaling 1,730 passing yards and 12 touchdowns through the air, adding 660 rushing yards and six scores.
Following the 2011 season, Tebow was traded to the Jets and saw action in 11 games with two starts, completing six of eight passes for 39 yards and rushing 32 times for 102 yards, serving as Sanchez's backup.
Tebow was in training camp with the New England Patriots in August 2013 but did not make the team.
The first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, Tebow was a collegiate standout at the University of Florida, setting Southeastern Conference records in total offense (12,232), rushing touchdown (57) and total touchdowns (145). A three
09/21/13 - Tim Tebow reportedly rejected a proposal to play football for a Russian team.
Moscow Black Storm owner Mikhail Zaltsman e-mailed Russian sports/news service R-Sport on Saturday, writing that Tebow refused his $1 million offer.
"Unfortunately agents of Tim Tebow turn down our proposal," Zaltsman wrote. "I hope that it's Tebow's agents' fault that the contract wasn't signed and Tim couldn't do anything about it. If it was his decision -- it's very upsetting. And in this case we don't want him in our team anyway.
"We are looking for the people who pursue their dreams, not the ones who talk about it."
Zaltsman's offer included $1 million to play in two playoff games for the Black Storm. Zaltsman wanted Tebow to fly to Moscow for the team's semifinal against the Moscow Patriots in the American Football Championship of Russia on Sept. 28 and also play in the final if they advance.
Tebow's agents reportedly urged him not to play.
09/06/13 - QB Tim Tebow turned down an NFL team interested in him because he refuses to switch to another position, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King.

Tebow was released by the New England Patriots last Saturday.
08/31/13 - The New England Patriots released quarterback Tim Tebow on Saturday but will keep tight end Rob Gronkowski on their 53-man roster, according to multiple reports.
The Patriots announced that they released punter Zoltan Mesko and defensive tackles Jermaine Cunningham and Marcus Forston.
Tebow completed 11 of 30 passes for 145 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the preseason.
Tebow was competing for the Patriots' backup spot to Tom Brady, but did not provide a serious enough challenge to Ryan Mallett for the job.
08/31/13 - QB Tim Tebow took to Twitter shortly after his release on Saturday to both thank the New England Patriots for giving him a chance, and to also say he still believes he can play football in the NFL. "I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback," Tebow tweeted, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
He also thanked team owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
"I would like to thank Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, Coach McDaniels and the entire Patriots organization for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a classy organization. I pray for nothing but the best for you all," Tebow tweeted.
