Tim Tebow back to the Philadelphia Eagles? OK, it probably won’t happen. But some fans are dreaming of the possibility.
On Monday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz sustained a torn ACL in a victory against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. That means the NFL MVP candidate is out for the season, and the Eagles are forced to adjust their plans at the position.
After news of Wentz’s injury broke, it didn’t take long for some on Twitter to think of the former Florida quarterback. You might remember that Tebow had a short stint during the 2015 preseason with Philadelphia. He was cut before the season after competing for the team’s third-string quarterback job.
Some fans — playfully or not — brought up Tebow as an option they wanted to see back in the City of Brotherly Love. Check out a sampling of the reactions below.
