Quarterback Tim Tebow, after two years in NFL exile, has another chance, with the Eagles. However, few think he’ll make the climb from the 90-man training camp throng to the final 53-man roster.
Teammate Brandon Graham is in the minority.
Via CBS Philly, Graham recently said he expects Tebow to be on the team, and on the field.
“Tim Tebow is going to shock a lot of people, because he is going to make the team,” Graham recently told Lauren Beasley of Hot 107.5 in Detroit. “And I think he will play a lot.”
It’s unclear whether Tebow will contribute as a change-of-pace quarterback, as the signal-caller for two-point conversions, or at a different position. And despite Graham’s confidence in Tebow, he still needs to earn both a job and playing time.
Tebow nevertheless once took the Broncos to the divisional round of the playoffs, which should count for something. Whether that translates to a meaningful role for the Eagles in 2015 remains to be seen.
