The Philadelphia Eagles signed Tim Tebow, giving the quarterback another chance to try and start a season on an NFL team, but without him moving up the depth chart, it is unlikely he’ll even be on the roster when the 2015 season begins.

Tebow hasn’t played an NFL game since 2012, and hasn’t been an actual quarterback since 2011, when he helped the Denver Broncos make the playoffs and even throw a game-winning touchdown in the Wild Card round against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
