Former Florida Gators QB Tim Tebow worked out for Philadelphia Eagles on Monday

Former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow spent Monday working out for the Philadelphia Eagles, ESPN.com‘s Adam Schefter reported.

Tebow, who did not play in the NFL last season after only being signed for training camp in 2013 by the New England Patriots, has spent much of the last 18 months in California being trained by quarterback guru Tom House.

According to Schefter, the Eagles do not plan on signing Tebow “at this time.”

It was rumored that Tebow would consider participating in the inaugural NFL Veterans’ Combine but that did not come to fruition.

The former Heisman Trophy winner’s accuracy has been his biggest issue at the professional level as he’s completed just 47.9 percent of his passes for an average of 6.7 yards per toss His 17-to-9 touchdown-to-interception ratio for his career is admirable, as are his 989 rushing yards on 197 carries (5.0 per attempt) with 12 rushing scores.
