Tebow will, obviously, need to beat out Matt Barkley for the job, but it sounds like Philadelphia may prefer to keep Tebow if all things end up being equal.
Barkley has reportedly been on the trading block for a few years now, and likely still is, but there hasn’t been any reported interest in him whatsoever.
The two of them will get one more opportunity to impress the Eagles’ coaching staff and front office this week.
Tebow, 28, signed a one-year, $660,000 contract with the Eagles in the weeks leading up to this year’s NFL Draft.
In three preseason games, Tebow has throw for 97 yards while completing 52.6 percent of his passes to go along with 50 yards rushing and a touchdown on 10 carries. He’s also fumbled twice and taken three sacks.
