Tim Tebow played his first NFL game since 2013 last Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts in his preseason debut with the Philadelphia Eagles. He put together a very solid all-around game and showed that he has made quite a few improvements to his game from the last time he played until now.
Not only is Tebow a difference maker on the field, he is also apparently a professional at breaking up fights in practice.
One of Tebow’s most obvious character traits is his calm, cool and collected attitude. He is not the type of guy to let his emotions get the best of him, which was shown in a big lights throughout this situation. Not only does he not like fighting himself, he is the first guy to get on-the-field when others are fighting in order to break it up.
That being said, the road ahead of Tebow as he looks to rekindle his NFL career is long. He has a lot of work to do in order to pass Matt Barkley for the third-string quarterback role, although he has been receiving quite a bit of praise from head coach Chip Kelly. If this chance doesn’t work out for him, there is a good chance that Tebow’s dreams of the NFL will be over.
Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez already have the top two quarterback spots filled, which leaves Tebow fighting for one of the last roster spots available on the entire team.
Every single NFL team needs a positive presence like Tebow in their locker room, which could be his ticket onto the roster. Barkley isn’t expected to be a long-term option at quarterback either, and Tebow does bring the ability to make plays with his legs.
Expect to hear plenty more about Tebow throughout the course of the preseason and to see suspense start building in the near future as we await Philadelphia’s decision on whether to keep him around or not.
