Peyton Manning To The Broncos, Could The Eagles Go After Tebow?
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Peyton Manning has decided to sign with the Denver Broncos, CBS reports.
Now that Manning is headed to Denver, Tebow is headed out of the mile high city. Ryan Wilson of cbssports.com ranks them the fourth most likely to land Tebow:
Head coach Andy Reid loves to collect quarterbacks. We were talking to friend of the blog, PFT’s Michael David Smith about this and he said he wouldn’t be surprised if Reid put Tebow on the field just enough for him to look serviceable and then unloaded him on a team desperate for a quarterback. He’s done it previously with Kevin Kolb, Donovan McNabb and A.J. Feeley. Those three players have yielded three second-round picks and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Anyway you look at it, the Cards, Skins and Fins got fleeced.
In Philly, Tebow would likely be the third quarterback behind Michael Vick and Mike Kafka but we’d take him over Vince Young. (Damning with faint praise, we know. But still.)
The Eagles did sign Trent Edwards to compete with Kafka in backing up Michael Vick. Do you think that the Eagles would be interested in replacing one of those two with Tebow?
