The Wall Street Journal’s Geoff Foster appeared on “Happening Now” on Fox News Channel on Monday to discuss the Philadelphia Eagles signing quarterback Tim Tebow to a one-year contract. Tebow has been out of the league since 2012 but has been working with a quarterback coach to improve his throwing inefficiencies.
According to Foster, Chip Kelly’s offense actually fits Tebow’s skill set better than other places so he is a fit in Philadelphia.
“The style of offense they run under Chip Kelly, who was the coach at Oregon, is very much like a college offense where Tebow was obviously at his best and they use a mobile quarterback which Tebow certainly is. It’s sort of a good fit. It’s a good chance for him. I thought ‘That makes sense.’ If any team is going to take that gamble, it is the Eagles and Chip Kelly because he’s actually a fit there. He wasn’t a fit at the Jets all. They didn’t know how to use him. He’s very unorthodox, he is a lefty and can’t throw the ball well, which is kind of important for quarterback, but it could work in Philadelphia.”
ESPN’s Bomani Jones, however, thought Tebow to the Eagles was a ridiculous idea.
