Despite being left off regular-season rosters for the past two years, Tim Tebow planned to attend the inaugural veteran's scouting combine in an attempt to keep his dream alive. However, he is not on the list of participants.

Despite that, Tebow reportedly worked out for the Eagles, though the team is not planning to sign him.

Cole: Kelly Wants to Make Tebow Third-String QB

Tuesday, March 17

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported that Chip Kelly wants to make Tebow the Eagles' third-string QB, but needs to trade current third-stringer Matt Barkley first: 

Dianna Marie Russini of NBC4 in Washington D.C. reported if Barkley is moved, there is an 80 percent chance Tebow is signed.


Tebow Reportedly Works Out for Eagles

Monday, March 16

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that Tebow is working out for the Eagles. However, Schefter later revealed that Tebow "has come and gone from Philadelphia. Team is not planning to sign him at this time. We'll see if anything changes."

This comes on the heels of Tebow not being on the participants list for the upcoming veterans combine. The full list can be viewed at AZCentral.com.

On March 8, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reported Tebow had been working out with Tom House, the personal coach of New England Patriots star Tom Brady. 

"He went from being a little inaccurate and didn’t throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball,” House told Volin.

 

The veteran scouting combine will be held March 22 in Tempe, Arizona. A new event on the NFL calendar this year, the combine is an opportunity for veterans and other free agents to showcase their skills on a big stage and hopefully emerge as diamonds in the rough.

Tebow, 27, would have perhaps been the most recognizable face in the field. The former Heisman Trophy winner has not thrown a regular-season NFL pass since 2012 but remains one of football's most polarizing personalities. In three professional seasons, the former Florida Gator threw for 2,422 yards and 17 touchdowns against nine interceptions. He has completed just 47.9 percent of his passes, however, and has largely been written off as being too inaccurate to survive in the NFL.

He has worked with ESPN's college football television coverage since being released by the Patriots before the 2013 season.
