Welcome back Tebow-mania.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

What would the NFL offseason be without the crazy following of a storyline that seems to explode out of no where. We may just be getting that today, as reports indicate quarterback Tim Tebow is working out for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Yes, Tebow-mania is trying to make a come back.

The story first came to light from ESPN's Adam Schefter:

Then the Eagles confirmed it.

Philadelphia currently has Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley, and G.J. Kinne on the roster. The team traded for Bradford this offseason, and re-signed Sanchez, so it can be assumed that, barring another trade, they will both be on the roster. Tebow could be considered for the third string position if head coach Chip Kelly is impressed with Tebow.

There has been speculation that Tebow, who has been working out with Tom House, Tom Brady's personal quarterback coach, could be looking to make a comeback. House has said Tebow has worked o his mechanics, speeding up his delivery and improving his accuracy. The Eagles appear to be the first team to put that to the test.
