What the hell?
Sports Illustrated's Peter King reports that the Eagles are now targeting Tim Tebow. Buried at the bottom of his article about the impact of the Donovan McNabb trade, King writes:
I have heard the Eagles will now focus on Tebow and are likely to join the parade of teams working him out and spending time with him. With seven picks in the first four rounds, Philadelphia has the ammo to go get the developmental quarterback Reid always likes to have on his roster. So don't think they won't be in play for one of these players.
And a post on the Eagles Web site says "It's no rumor that the Eagles are interested in selecting him," although the front office tells us this morning they don't have anything more to say. The draft is still two weeks away and the Birds wouldn't be the only ones courting the Gator icon (who just signed a big Nike endorsement deal Monday). Tebow's pre-draft tour takes him to Cleveland today and then to McNabb's new team -- the Redskins -- on Thursday and Friday, according to ESPN.
