A deal was first reported on Sunday night via Jay Glazer.
Tebow, a former first round pick of the Denver Broncos, hasn't been in the NFL since the Patriots released him in August 2013. He used to be teammates with Mark Sanchez when they both played on the New York Jets in 2012.
Tebow went 8-6 as a starting quarterback in his three-year career. He's recorded 173 completions on 361 attempts (47.9%) for 2,422 yards, 17 touchdowns, nine interceptions, and a 75.3 passer rating. He's also rushed for 989 yards and 12 touchdowns but has 15 fumbles.
In Philadelphia, Tebow figures to compete for a third quarterback spot. The Eagles seem to be ready to move on from Matt Barkley after (unsuccessfully) trying to trade him this offseason.
The Eagles offseason has been crazy and it's not about to slow down any time soon now that Tebow is in the fold. For all your Tebowmania needs, click here.
