Kinne in the Eagles' clutch of quarter- backs with head coach Chip Kelly. But how will Tebow fit in with the Eagles? The starting quarter- back position is a long shot for Tebow. Many believe Sanchez earned that spot after his perfor- mance in 2014 where he started as a backup for Nick Foles then replaced him as the starter halfway through the season. The Eagles re-signed Sanchez to a two-year contract in March. Some speculate that Bradford, who the St. Louis Rams traded to Philadelphia for Foles, might be behind San- chez. If he's not in the first-or second spot, Tebow could be a solid third-string, backing up Sanchez and Bradford - or whomever Kelly decides to put in the sec- ond spot. While some critics question what Tebow will bring to the team, others are looking at the situation with a more positive outlook. ESPN's Skip Bay- less wrote that Tebow would be a good fit for Philadelphia and Kelley will know - and want to utilize - the Heis- man Trophy winner's strengths. "Tebow's last NFL stop just might be the jumpstart his career needs," Bayless wrote. Tebow returning to the NFL is a nice feel- good, comeback story that will inspire fans - or draw in the critics who want to see him fail. But he's also start- ing with Philadelphia with a clean slate. His accomplishments with the Broncos are a foot- note and won't mean anything when he puts on an Eagles jersey and helmet for the first time. If he wants to earn his keep with Philadelphia and Continue his dream of being an NFL quar- terback, he's going to work for it.
